The Bid, how good was he
The pin incident and Spectacular Bid
The worst troubled trip a horse ever had and still won, Spectacular Bid
On this episode of Past the Wire’s podcast Gate to Wire we are honored to welcome author Peter Lee. Peter, a contributing writer for Past the Wire wrote “Spectacular Bid: The last Superhorse of the Twentieth Century (Horses in History)”
We talk everything about “The Bid!” From his greatest triumphs to his agonizing defeats in the Belmont and the Jockey Gold Cup. We of course debate the pin incident, trainer Buddy Delp, and so much more.
Pick 6 King Jonathan Stettin says the Bid’s win in the Florida derby, which he saw is one of if not the best troubled trip win ever. Creme de la Fete ( who fell down, got up and won )may give that a run for the money as would Afleet Alex in his Preakness score, but this race was something to behold and remember!
Watch the great Eddie Arcaro describe and highlight this horrendous trip before checking out this can’t miss podcast:
