Swaps. I saw that race and had the feeling that if Swaps had really been extended, he would have turned in the best time in Derby history, now held by Whirlaway, 2:01 2/5. Swaps, my choice in any case, recently broke the alltime record for the mile and 70 yards.
Any of these horses could win on a given day, depending on condition and desire. But horse racing is as much a business as any other enterprise. As a businessman, and a racing enthusiast as well, I'd consider averages and bet on Citation, the greatest money winner of all time.
