Flightline, where does he rank all time?

A special Unfiltered on Past The Wire TV, A Breeders’ Cup Win And You’re In show and more!

#Flightline #Unfiltered

This is probably the best assessment of Flightline and his outstanding race in The Breeders’ Cup Win And You’re In Pacific Classic at Del Mar you will hear or see.

Flightline made it look easy storming his way into The Breeders’ Cup Classic via a win in The Pacific Classic. Talk about Win And You’re In, Flightline stamped himself as likely the shortest priced favorite in The Classic in a long time if not ever. If he runs the race he ran in The Pacific Classic in The Breeders’ Cup Classic the race is probably for second. But will he?

Our hosts Michael Wilson and Jonathan Stettin deep dive Flightline and not only his race in The Pacific Classic but also some other interesting points; Is he “The Goat”? Does he belong in that conversation, if yes why, if no why not? Is there a GOAT? How does he stack up against some other greats? better, faster, slower? What about heart, getting hooked, or looked in the eye? What might we see in The Breeders’ Cup we didn’t see in The Pacific Classic? Money, what about his stud fee? What is it today? What happens to it should he win The Classic? How about if he loses The Classic, is he de-valued? Could there be a back up plan and. what is it? How does he respond to not having a month off after his last win, something he has had in all five of his other races? What defines “The Goat”? What separates the greats from the flat out fast?

    Just found the site. Intriguing article. Not enough background or history on the horse that this kind of article should contain. Great site, looking forward to following along.
