Andy Beyer was on Steve Byk's program today and he was speaking about the quality of actual Derby performances in recent years.  He went on to say that the last  "really terrific performance by a Derby winner was Barbaro's in 2006."  He noted the win by six lengths and being assigned a Beyer speed figure of 111.  The comment was in the broad context of the changes in Triple Crown competition today vs. some years ago.  

Barbaro is mentioned consistently on broadcasts of many kinds and also in print and for that I am grateful.

   I know in my heart Barbaro would have won the Triple Crown-- he was a great horse - no question about it- his win in the Derby was breathtaking

Byk just this minute mentioned Barbaro in regard to the race in which he won by fewer lengths than any of his others.  It was a FL race.  Just happened to hear it.

He won by less than a length in both the Florida Derby and Holy Bull.
