These are the types of performances that made me a race fan!

There still in the Winners circle, because that's where he belongs. He could of Broke  Candy Rides Track Record

Geared way down  and he toyed with the field early. I think Big Red had a few small fields. The other 5 I'm sure

Figured the payouts for the first 6 places to see if it was worth it to run today.

Do you think he hooked some new fans today. Young and old

For sure he got some fans! People love excellence; that’s why we give out trophies and words; MVPs and the like. 
 

This just makes me wonder how many of our three year old champions could have really become special if they ran at 4 or 5! We may be fortunate that he never made the TC races!

Sadler is a chronic cheat and crook.  Anywhere else in the world, he's banned for life.  Flightline is a possible great but who can tell?  It's really bad for US racing to allow cheats to work.

That's a shame. I really want to root for this horse. No other Sadler horse has performed like him. I would like to believe that he wouldn't risk screwing with this horse's legacy. He could be the best I've seen since Ghostzapper.

Funny, I was comparing Flightline to Ghostzapper in a phone conversation last night.  It is necessary to separate the horse from the trainer and simply appreciate the horse.  Flightline is incredibly fast and appears to be gifted with 10 furlong scope.

Get Sadler out of the sport along with all the chronic cheats and the sport will be reinvigorated.  That's exactly what happened in both Japan and Hong Kong when bettor flight caused strong rules and regulations with no wiggle room to be adopted.  Now, they are two of most successful operations on the planet, though far different in many ways, as well.

They are both as clean as a whistle and that's what matters most.
