fastest sprinter you ever saw
« on: November 01, 2017, 07:22:14 pm »

I am looking at the Breeders cup Sprint races (thank you King for getting them to me)  and was thinking of the fastest sprinter visually that I had seen.  Maybe not the fastest time at the end but the one that I watched and said (crap that horse is fast)   My 1st one is when I saw Hilco Scamper as a 2 or 3 year old at Santa Anita and the 2nd was Lost in the Fog.  Oh I almost forgot Groovy who I saw at Santa Anita.  Years ago there was a Arkansas bred who always got a big lead and then collapsed in the end but I cant remember the name.  They tried a couple of different jocks and even tried coming off the pace once but I never saw the horse or mare win only it always led by several lengths after 3 furlongs.  How about you guys??

Lost In The Fog, was watching live when he went 1:07.1 at Golden Gate.  I literally couldn't believe my eyes at how easy he did it.  I think it was in 2005?

This is a great tribute clip, he was a monster even though he flopped in the BC Sprint:

Not the greatest, but the best I saw in person. Karen's Tom 1:07.8 at Oaklawn in 1990 was damn impressive

At Oaklawn, it was Silver Ghost.  Elsewhere, Groovy was the fastest I saw.
