Sigh. No.

I voted for Ravens Pass. Since he wouldn't get in if Smarty Jones does, I'm going to play the game dictator card and say Sun King goes in. (And if I'm lucky, Ravens Pass will get voted in next year ;))

How did Sun King get in with no Grade One wins? I think we should exclude as he doesn't meet general FF rules?

Someone suggested him. Enough people voted for him in round 1, so he made it to round 2.

Given that we had The Black, who isn't even a real horse, I think we can let the Gr 1 thing slide for famous studs.

Not to mention, the suggestions were made on January 2. If you felt strongly that a certain stud shouldn't be considered, you had plenty of time between then and now to say so. ;)

True. Didn't register with me though as just had a quick look at best results before voting!

In that case...no vote, no complaining. ;) (Or I suppose, "ill-informed vote, no complaining".)

...I knew that. I honestly did. I'm dyslexic and I read my own typing as "Farley." I feel so ashamed >.<

I have most of the Black Stallion books and once upon a time, a good chunk of the Thoroughbred series until it became more Jumping and Hunter than racing.

lol I think The Black was supposed to be part arabian, wasn't he? At least Sun King is a registered thoroughbred.

Yeah, his dam was pure Arab and his sire was...some half-wild miracle stud, if I remember correctly? I think he and The Island Stallion were supposed to somehow be distant cousins or something.

I still have several of his books, including a first edition of The Black Stallion and two of his Little Black books. Great writer
