I haven't seen anything .



Rebel's Romance ran 6348.425 feet in the UAE Derby in 116.28 seconds (1:56.28). Adjusted to 6270 ft (Preakness distance), which he covered in 114.84 (1:54.84). 

Then there's the issue of timing from the gate with no run-up, which could you deduct somewhere between 1 and 1.8 seconds from the final time.

I've got one somewhat similar to this.  I look at haplotype E and L for the Belmont specifically.  L is mostly the higher letters in FF5 and a couple in ff11 I believe.  E is basically FF3.  I do not have any test for 8 but it is one that I look for as it is better in the BEL than the KD as a tailFF

Family 8 has many producer  branches ,I like to look for Woodbine, many conduits

trace to her sooner or later. 2004-2007 they were red hot.

I’m just not sure who he beat besides Panadol and France Go De Ina

You are right, Rebel's Romance does have a nice way of going.  And Panadol isn't exactly chopped liver.  US bred....2nd to Rebel's Romance in UAE Derby. And 1st in the 1900m Al Bastakiya by quite a lot.  He's a monster IMHO and nobody in the U.S. will ever get to see him.  Same breeder bred a  BC F&M Sprint winner and Friend's Lake who beat the pants off Tapit in the FL Derby in 2004.

Starting with 2019 and going back 20 years:

Sir Winston RAN-RAN

Justify ND-BR

Tapwrit INT (np)-T2

Creator SD (np)-Prince (np)

Am. Pharoah ND-RAN

Tonalist Rib (np)-ND

Palace Malice ND-T2

Union Rags RAN-ND

Ruler on Ice RAN-Buck

Drosselmeyer ND-BR

Afleet Alex T2-Haw

Birdstone ND-Prince (np)

Empire Maker ND-Int (np)

Sarava ND-GM (np)

Point Given RAN-INT (np)

Commendable Int (np)-DrF (np)

Broodmare sireline:  10 ND, 5 non-Phalaris (2 Ribot, 2 Int, 1 Prince), 4 RAN, 1 BR or Nas.

Broodmare dam’s sireline:  6 non-Phalaris (2 Prince, 2 Int, 1 GM, 1 Ribot), 3 RAN, 3 T2, 2 ND, 2 Nas, 2 BR, 1 Buck, 1 Haw...ND much better in bmsireline.

Non-Phalaris good in either:  9 had an np in one or the other although only 4 in the last 15 years.  np in the bmsireline worked with another np 2 twice, T2 twice, and ND once.  np on the bottom worked with ND 3X, another np twice, and RAN once.

Most often in the bmsireline is ND; worked with another Phalaris 7X and an np 3X in a row 16-18 years back but none since.
