“Any horse that won the Santa Anita Derby, the top race in California, the Kentucky Derby, the Preakness, is a great horse already,” said trainer Ken McPeek, who will saddle long shots Unstoppable U and Atigun in the Belmont. “He didn’t even have to win [the Belmont] for his legacy to be strong.”
But ask those who captured the Triple Crown and those who came impossibly close and the gulf is plenty wide. Cauthen said after winning it, it’s impossible to root against another horse trying to join the club.
“Maybe racing could use a star and he could possibly the star,” Wolfson said. “He really loves to run and looks like he wants to win. And he looks like he would be a good successor.”
