Free House beating Silver Charm in the 1999 Cap. He lost to him so many times in the Triple Crown races - this was redemption.

Since 1990, what has been racing's best rivalry? Breeding hurts the sport but since these two squared off, has any 2 horses even come close to Silver Charm/Free House over the past 25 years?

Zenyatta/RA? lol, Just joking!

Agreed - I was just going to say Free House but you beat me to it.

There was a pretty good rivalry I think it was Thunder Gulch / Suave Prospect ? through one Gulfstream 3 y.o. season, but Silver Charm / Free House was better. I was lucky enough to be at Santa Anita and see one of the early races of their 3 y.o. year the San Felipe, when Free House had the upper hand. Or hoof.

Sunday Silence and Easy Goer, although they were 3 year olds in 1989.  They were both still winning in 1990.

Sunday Silence and Easy Goer, although they were 3 year olds in 1989.  They were both still winning in 1990.

I will always have a special place in my heart for Sunday Silence. As a kid just out of high school in 1971 I drove out of the San Francisco bay area one friday looking for a place to camp/hunt. I drove about 150 miles southeast, and ended up in a wide open spot of the San Joaquin Valley.  There was nothing but cows and a few vineyards and fig orchards. I saw and asked a ranch hand for permission to call coyotes the following morning. With permission granted, I camped there that night and early Saturday morning I set out on a 7800 acre ranch that had a thin 1.5 mile long airstrip in the middle of it.  I camped again that Saturday night, and awoke to a deafening silence the following Sunday.  It was calm, clear, and absolutely quiet.  I did not hunt that day. Something told me to just stop and observe the wide open outdoors.

Little did I know back then....as a 18 year old kid that the ranch belonged to George Pope jr.

It was Mr. Pope who started it all when he purchased the Kentucky castoff mare Dowager back in the early 1950's. Since Mr. Pope  (Pope Lumber co.) was breeding out here in California, not a lot is written about him in Kentucky breeding circles. He passed away in 1979, and though he had won a Kentucky Derby back in 1962 with Decidedly...and had Hill Rise...it was Sunday Silence who came after Mr. Pope's passing.

Ann Ferland wrote a very good piece about the man, his careful and diligent breeding patterns, and the El Peco Ranch in Madera California. A place that will always be dear to me.

Grinder, what a nice story and memory you have.  I loved both Sunday Silence and Easy Goer but, in my opinion, it was Easy Goer who made it so thrilling and exciting.  His huge rally down the stretch is something I've never forgotten.  I could never watch Zenyatta without thinking of Easy Goer.  What a spectacular pair Sunday Silence and Easy Goer were.

For those who are too young to remember Sunday Silence and Easy Goer (and those who are too old to remember, hee hee), here's the video of the 1989 Breeder's Cup Classic and what a race it was.  I got goosebumps seeing it again.  Enjoy!

Easy Goer won the Eclipse Award for 2 year old Colt.  Found some great vintage videos.  The first video, the 1989 Wood Memorial, is great.  It's the Wide World of Sports coverage of the race and it has interviews with Pat Day, Shug McGaughey, Secretariat's trainer and some video of Secretariat.

Easy Goer's lifetime PP's:

http://helloracefans.com/pdfs/lifetime-pps/PP_Easy-Goer.pdf

They just don't make Tbreds like Sunday Silence and Easy Goer anymore.  Where did they get all of those gears?

his shoes were too small for the bcc, but he did set a track record at SA, the old sa tended to produce track records and quarter cracks.
