It was on very late here so I didn't stay up to watch it but am absolutely thrilled he's done it. The last TC winner was before I was born so fantastic to see. Just watched the replay and he does everything so easily. Hopefully it's a way off yet but can I make an early suggestion that we add him as a famous stud when he retires?

Same here.

According to Wikipedia his owner plans to retire him at the end of this year. ;)

He's the grandson of Empire Maker, but that should be distant enough for him to be in the game. It'll be up to voting but I'm guessing he'll get a lot of votes. :P

He wouldn't be eligible - only horses who stand in real life currently are allowed to be in the game. Sadly he never made it to stud.

If you go to bloodhorse site, they have clips of him with Baffert...what a puppy dog! You wouldn't expect that from a racehorse, to just let people come over and fuss on him.  I don't say this often, as Secretariat is my fave, but I think I have dual fave's for favourite racehorse of all time.

So happy to watch it yesterday :)

I would have loved to have been there to see him win! I was so excited, since I'm one of those people who has never seen a Triple Crown before. I didn't even have to tell my family that he won, too. All they had to do was guess when I started squealing and dancing like a maniac.

I looked up how other Triple Crown winners did in the game :) we have all of them here!

  • Sir Barton - Sire: Bronze (1.8 ) | Broodmare Sire: Silver (3.1)
  • Gallant Fox - Sire: Bronze (2.7) | Broodmare Sire: Silver (3.5) Chef-de-Race (I)
  • Omaha - Sire: Silver (3.5) | Broodmare Sire: Silver (5.1) Chef-de-Race (I)
  • War Admiral -  Sire: Silver (3.4) | Broodmare Sire: Silver (3.1) Chef-de-Race (I)
  • Whirlaway -  Sire: Silver (3.2) | Broodmare Sire: Gold (6.1) Chef-de-Race (I)
  • Count Fleet -  Sire: Silver (4.1) | Broodmare Sire: Silver (4.7) Chef-de-Race (I)
  • Assault - Sire: Silver (4.4) | Broodmare Sire: Silver (4.5) Chef-de-Race (I)
  • Citation -  Sire: Bronze (1.7) | Broodmare Sire: Bronze (1.9)
  • Secretariat - Sire: Silver (4.7) | Broodmare Sire: Silver (4.6) Chef-de-Race (I)
  • Seattle Slew - Sire: Silver (4.5) | Broodmare Sire: Gold (5.4) Chef-de-Race (I)
  • Affirmed - Sire: Silver (4.1) | Broodmare Sire: Silver (4.0) Chef-de-Race (I)

Sir Barton is also the "horse 1" in the game... and Whirlaway & Seattle Slew are the only silver / gold ranked sires. Of these two, I only have some of Seattle Slew's bloodlines. Next year two of my foals will be 3x3 inbred to him; one by NCh. Away The Lads out of GCh. Yeman, and the other by ICh. To Die For out of Spell Song.
