The amazing thing about Cam’s four-year-old campaign was that he lost six of his first eight starts. Perfect Out beat him a couple of times, once on a DQ; Midas Almahurst beat him; J.D.’s Buck beat him……He started in February and finished up in December that year.

Lets go back a bit.  How about On The Road Again.  Cam Fella also.  Do you remember the match
race with It's Fritz? 

Wasn't OTRA also retired after his 4 y.o campaign?

The Cam Fella - Its Fritz race was not a match race.

FOILED AGAIN JUST BECAUSE OF HIS LONGEVITY AT SUCH A HIGH CAILBRE,,,,,PLUS MONEY EARNED IS UNREAL

I got into this conversation on ITS & compared Foiled Again with Gallo Blue Chip.  I was surprised to find that overall, Foiled Again had the better stats.  Yes, longevity has been ultra-impressive.

OTRA won 22 of his 30 starts at four and earned a million dollars. Six of those losses were by less than a length. He was retired to Blue Chip Farm.

Is that like the NFL team who goes 9-7 but all 7 losses were by less than a TD but they didn't make the playoffs?  dunno

Anyway, I'm of the opinion that an FFA's career starts as a 4 y.o. so I wouldn't include Cam or OTRA although I did love to watch both horses.

Shouldn't Cam Fella's stats have an ** next to them because Pat Crowe was his driver?  Even Clint Galbraith had a career before & after Niatross.

Some of OTRA's tight losses were pretty honorable. He lost to George S in a :55.3 mile at Yonkers. OTRA was parked the mile. He closed four lengths on Guts at M1 and wound up a neck short. He was first over for three quarters in a race at Yonkers and lost to Division Street by a nose.

He  won at a mile and an eighth and a mile and a half that year.

His best performers were fillies like Delinquent Account and Sara Loren Road. There was money to be made in the NYSS and his fillies made it, but being in that niche helped him and where were his sons?
