Unforgettable Races of the Past Decade





It's the end of another decade. The years fly by and you can't help but feel sentimental at this time of the year. Hopefully everyone can look back at their past with happiness and great achievement. Hopefully we all hold a bit of anticipation for what is to come ahead in our lives and we all carry a healthy and prosperous future for both ourselves and to all of those that we love.


One thing is for sure, in the world of horse racing, both here and abroad, these last ten years did not disappoint. We saw two Triple Crown Winners. We were blessed to enjoy Wise Dan, Main Sequence, Runhappy, Gun Runner, Beholder, Winx and so many others. We were witness to magnificent moments on the track and with those equine athletes who left us in awe of their power.


To all of us who are passionate for this sport and who hold these beautiful animals on the highest pedestal, here is a short compilation of a few of my most unforgettable races of the past decade as we look forward to all that will come in the future. Long live the Sport of Kings!

Anna...


Le Vent Se Leve. Around that final turn and down into that stretch. I have never seen a horse run like that. It just takes your breath away. That has to be the greatest acceleration I've ever seen, with his maiden race a close second. I highly doubt we will ever see him again. I think he was the greatest overseas dirt runner of my lifetime.

The finish of that Met Mile was a blur Lisa, a deafening blur.

Just rewatched Le Vent Se Leve again, forgot how tenacious he is, fingers crossed we see him run again. Animal Kingdom's was such a wonderful win, even though I was a hardcore MMM fan & my first Derby. Frankel well.....
