On eve of the Arc, a look back at last days of a great winner

  1. I’m flattered to have helped inspire this post and by your kind comments, and pleased you went into a little more detail on Alleged’s background — mine was already too long to do that or to mention his stud career. One thing: Alleged raced once at two, winning a seven-furlong maiden at the Curragh by eight lengths.

    O’Brien and Piggott held Alleged in the same esteem as Nijinsky and Sir Ivor, but in the U.S. at least he never was quite as well known as those two.

    Thank you for the nice post. And I’m very envious that you got to see him race!
