Amazing horse, bad dq, my dad was the morning rider for david!
Please, can someone Post the 1992 Arkansas Derby and the 1991 Frizette Stakes for the late Preach?! Thanks

World's richest horse race? Nonsense. The Dubai races were richer by over two million dollars, three of them. Typical self aggrandisement.
RIP beautiful boy..You were loved by so many.... 31 is So Great!❤🏇 Super ride by Eddie.👏 Jerry was sure coming!
Should have shown Big Red’s move in the Preakness.
Easy Goer was the Test of the Champion Drug-Free King, the King without any raceday performance enhancing drugs. New York was the only state at that time which banned all raceday performance enhancing drugs, which kept all their endless amount of major races the true tests of champions and their outcomes crystal clear. Only drug-free races are true championship events crowning true drug-free champions. The numerous attempts trying to expand Sunday Silence's line and influence outside Japan have had very little to below average success, and have left many doubtful about Sunday Silence's worth outside of Japan.
There will never be another Big Red, Sham was chasing the impossible dream. A great horse who might have won the triple crown any other year.
Rest in peace a.p indy
Sunday Silence was the king. He went on to be a foundation sire in Japan. Virtually no achieving thoroughbred there does not carty his genes. Our loss was their gain.
Pat Day ran him with Confidence in this race---- he never let SS get out more than a length-- his mistake in the Preakness and Breeders Cup in 1989. RIP Easy.
Jim McKay and Easy Goer two Greats. I still love hearing Jims Voice and watching Big Easy run... glorious.
This was recommended to me after he passed away. RIP AP Indy
Just felt right to watch and honor his legacy.
He couldn't out pass Man O War. 22 raises and won 21 straight raises
The only time in my life that I ever picked a winning horse in the derby....paid 20-1....i was only 15 years old and went with my dad to see a bookie in a bar....my dad bet on his house then handed me a 20 dollar bill and said pick us out a winner....as I was going thru the names on the spread sheet I heard someone in the back ground tell someone else that go for gin was gonna win it because he was the best "mud horse" and never lost a race on a wet track....so I put 20 on him to win and my dad had to give all our winnings to my mom ....knowing my dad I doubt she received all of it....all I got was a Pepsi and a disgusting pickled egg out of a jar behind the bar.... I could have gotten a pickled pigs foot instead but the pickled egg looked alot safer and possibly tastier....but I'll never know because I'll be damned if I ever eat a pigs foot.....especially one that was floating in a jar full of red liquid....tines have changed alot since 1994....you don't see pickled eggs or pig feet in a jar behind the bar anymore....id like to see the expression on the face of a recently turned 21 year old girl upon placing a pickled pigs foot in front of her to eat.

Before they ran this race Charlie Whittingham took a shot at Shug for running Easy Goer in a 1 1/2 race before the Classic and said that SS was trained perfectly for the race...He pretty much said he did the much better and smarter Training job than Shug leading up to this race...Maybe he was still a little upset with Shugs horse ending his Crown bid in the belmont..Or maybe he was just being honest and did not mean to be disrespectful
howard cosell actually knew racing. not like idiots bob costas and al michaels
RIP A.P. Indy

Seemed like typical owners. I am sorry to report if I never rode for an owner like that, I would have been much happier. Unfortunately I did many times. Rode for some great owners also but most of them resembled Slews owner. The classless thing they did was yes run that horse right after the Triple crown, so yes, he withstood a beating. 100% the owners fault. Not the trainers fault whatsoever. In fact if they would have let him train the horse like they were paying him for, he might have been unbeaten. Another obvious classless move they made was not only firing the trainer with the trainer not doing anything wrong, they start stabbing him in the back. Never heard a complaint about his drinking until Slew lost. Holy Mollie. They made him out as the biggest drunk in history. Probably didn't drink anymore then he did when they first hired him Bottom line is SLEW WAS MY favorite horse of all times as I started riding at the Bush at age 11 the year he won the Triple Crown. After hearing and seeing the circumstances of how the owners acted, to bad they had to mistreat one of the greatest horses of all times, and at the same time screwed over the trainer and jockey. I call it KARMA.

One of the best TB races I've ever seen. And, R to R was never the same afterwards; she made one more start that year, finished a disappointing second, and was taken out of training. She was retired early the next year due to a recurring hairline fracture. More power to her, but I think running that hard to beat Curlin cooked her. Curlin was one of the toughest hombres I've ever seen.
Wonderful horse! RIP AP Indy. <3
What horse! Thankful to have seen him race!
Talented, tough, professional racehorse.... RIP, Indy.
Risen Star/Affirmed/Alydar/Seattle Slew/American Pharoah....Would take Easy over all 5 of these Horses
RIP A.P. Indy.
Rest in peace big guy. He was one of the all time greats.
R.I.P A.P.INDY :(
Great video, Thanks for sharing
RIP Champ! A legend has passed but will never be forgotten.
Lucas can go to hell... he ran horses into the grave
I gave Johar tip to my cousin Jimmy Fitzgerald the Trainer at Santa Anita that day! He died in 2004!
Would have been a Triple Crown Winner No Doubt!
Wow. A $600K workout!
Rest In Peace old bro will always miss you champ.
Never to this day...can I believe this decision. Risk totally lost her gait.
AP Indy gone at 31 years today. 2/21/20. No more freight train.
We used to say "here comes the freight train" when he was flying down the stretch! It was like poetry in motion when he would win races. Superhorse Legend
Rest in peace A.P Indy you are a legend.
R.I.P Ap Indy, passed away 02/21/2020.
So long big fella.
RIP AP Indy

RIP A.P. Indy. Great race.
AP Indy passed on today. RIP to a legend and a champion.
Anyone who has watched the 1989 Belmont Stakes as Both Horses were Racing for the 3rd time in 5 Weeks and at 12 Furlongs witnessed exactly why Many "Still" feel Easy Goer was the Better Horse...This race was an absolute Destruction as Easy Goer just Mopped the floor with his Rival while also running the 2nd fastest Belmont only behind the Great Secretariat....Race was over early as they rounded the far turn...This Brilliant performance along with many many other Brilliant performances is why Easy Goer was the better horse between the 2...Couple of Bad rides by Pat Day cost Easy Goer the Legacy he deserved...
You can say that Sunday Silence was the better horse if that is your opinion and he did win 3 out of 4 so your opinion is valid to make...Bot those who claim Sunday Silence had more Heart makes no sense...Easy Goer was pinned on rail entire stretch in Preakness and dug deep to only lose by a "Nose" at the wire...Easy Goer showed a TON of heart and was just "Unfortunate" in the photo...Classic he closed fast to miss by a "Neck"...No idea what that has to do with him not having enough Heart...Only Race where 1 of them showed no heart was the Belmont...Sunday Silence showed absolutely ZERO Heart when Easy Goer just completely BLEW by him like he was standing still and Sunday Silence did not even put up an ounce of Heart...Now i am not saying that Sunday Silence did not have any Heart as a Racehorse but to say he had MORE Heart than Easy Goer is just ridiculous and senseless...
one of the greats of all time but a tragedy the way he was treated once his career was over. i am a horse player but groups like PETA have a point when they say there is s lot of cruelty in horse racing. we need to treat these champions better
39,000 dollar triple. huh.
The greatest of all time.
The horse fighter....
Comment=secretariat Like=sham (not begging for likes just wanna see who poeple like more!)
@Justin V yeah, I guess ur right
Many clouds in the sky how stupid - both loved but secretariat was special.
i loved the way tom durkin and c c lopez would act whenever c c won. durkin would drag out his name and c c would mug for the camera. great days at the big A.
the female announcer was wrong about how the purse is split. the place money stays the same and does not factor into the win, as both horses would have gotten place money regardless of outcome.
4-1 Noor over Citation....Nuff' said. NOT! 3-1 Beau Purple over Kelso....Nuff' said. NOT! Akureyri 3-1 over Pleasant Colony....Nuff' said. NOT! Formal Gold 4-2 over Skip Away....Nuff' said. NOT! Darby Creek Road 3-0 over John Henry....Nuff' said. NOT! Cabrini Green 4-0 over John Henry...Nuff' said. NOT! Billy Kelly 8-4 over Sir Barton....Nuff' said. NOT! Gallant Bloom 4-1 over Shuvee....Nuff' said. NOT! Who's better in any way is totally subjective. And there are an endless amount of other factors, and even after all the other endless amount of factors are factored in, who's better in any way is still totally subjective.

"Sun. Silence" won 3, big 4 races in Thoroughbred Horse Racing in 1989
"'Sun. Silence' holds on. And he wins by desperate neck..."Easy Goer" was too late...not enough to win it, and it was "Sun. Silence" in racing epic":Tommy Durkin, NBC Sports
Tommy Durkin called this race for NBC-TV Network
This race was run on June 10, 1989 (Sat.)
I saw this race on TV
Exotic Wood was my favorite filly of all time. McCarron’s ride in this race was world class.
Trevor good Davy was the best.
Woulda , coulda , shoulda !!! 3-1 Sunday Silence ... Nuff’ said
Fantástico Sire Grupo 1 Winners
Q barbaro nos deverian hacer ver en las escuelas estas carreras de calidoscopio
ONe of my favorite horses as I loved watching her sire Pollard's Vision. Her duels with Harve deGrace are legendary
What were Sunday Silence's excuses in the drug free Belmont Stakes on a larger track with no drugs allowed, in the Grade 2 Swaps Stakes on his larger home track, in the Hollywood Gold Cup on his larger home track, in the maiden race losing to Cro Lover, in the allowance race on his larger home track losing to Houston, etc?

Skip Away was very aware of what he had to do..When other Horse took a slight lead Skip Away knew it was time to go to work
Skip Away was a Legit Champion during his Prime who could have competed with Some of the Great Horses of this Sport in my opinion...His tactical Speed and brute force and power bounding through the stretch of his races were Top Level...Owners had to put up 480,000 to enter him in the 1997 Classic and that was a very smart and confident investment...Blew the doors off the Field...Skip Away was the real deal and will always be in my memories of Champions of this Sport...Beautiful looking horse also
Prime vs Prime i would give Skip Away the edge over Cigar...Both were Great Horses but Skip Away had the better tactical Speed and His ability was right there with Cigar...Skip Away was a MONSTER during a good stretch of his career...Bounding home in the stretch with suck power in his Prime...He was a legit Champion...His Rival Formal Gold had his career cut Short before the Classic and He was a Horse that disappointed me most because He was turning into a SUPERSTAR in my opinion...What could have been...
What was easy goers excuse in the Derby ?
There's up and down for every athletes, Secretariat chose to peak at the most amazing moments, provided us the most amazing performance ever seen in possibly biggest horse racing event of his time, as some said it correctly, this is a horse made by God indeed.
This field was STACKED also...This Horse would come off 1 Very long layoff after the other and Dominate...Any distance...On the lead...Stalking...Or from Dead last...HUGE Beyer Speed figures...Ghostzapper is a Legend
1 of the Greatest Horses of this Century...Even with his Short career i have him in my Top 3 of this Century along with American Pharoah and Ghostzapper...These 3 are Standouts
"Spectacular Bid" led this race by as much as 3 lengths in CXI Belmont Stakes despite stepping on pin earlier in day, but that led couldn't hold up as jockey Ruben Hernandez rode "Coastal" to upset win in that race
I bought a tb stallion from a guy in southern fl. Said he raced. His race name was General Zod. It wasnt till years later after i cut him. That i looked him up. Turns out it was a seattle slew grandson.
Beating your Rival "3 of 4" times only "sounds" like a lot...But the rivalry between Easy Goer/Sunday Silence was so Close that just a "Nose" has separated them from being Tied at 2 a piece...And a "Nose" and "Neck" short of being 3 to 1 in Easy Goers favor...Some fans just look at the record and fail to understand the Context along with all the Circumstances during those races...Anyone who was around and watched both Horses Careers and their Rivalry and the 1989 Belmont cant just say 1 Horse was "Better" than the other period...3 to 1 record does not tell the story
Yr. later (1980) Angel Cordero, Jr. would ride "Codex" to controversial, about 5-length victory in CV Preakness Stakes as "Codex"/that yr.'s Ky. Derby-winning filly, "Genuine Risk" (ridden by Jacinto Vasquez) bumped at top, stretch for stretch run
It was overcast day, weather-wise in City, Balto., Md. on May 19, 1979 (Sat.)-day CIV Preakness Stakes was run in "Monumental City" in Pimlico Race Course
My all time favorite!!
I have Seattle Slew Breyers horse. That and the TV were as close as I could get. I was in college at the time and had not money for travel. I only got Breyers horses if there was one that represented a real horse, and not even all of them.
i whatch it every year no matter what
This was an explosion! If this was 1 1/4 miles he would of shattered the course record
The only race he loses at 3 was the derby it just wasn’t him that day every other race he should of won.
