Why does this horse deserve the ‘Horse of the Hour’: This guy is a very diverse racer. He has won at all distances from sprint races to staying races. He’s won multiple grade one races on both surfaces. His record for 2010 is outstanding being 9(9)-5(5)-2(2)-1(1)-0(0) with $2,376,000 in earnings. In the Hall Of Fame he is third for earnings (2010), seventh for earnings (2008+), ninth for earnings (overall), equal second for stakes wins with five wins (2010), and third for points (2010). He is definately one of the best 4-Y-O+ males racing this season having proved his class on many occasions this year.

Moochi has now agreed to do drawings of the winning horses!!! (You can see her drawingings in Birthday presents…)That is your prize now + the trophy card thing that I am making.

So enter any horse that you think is great!!!

Why does this horse deserve the “Horse of the Hour”??
He’s won 8 stakes wins this year alone and just recently qualified for stud. His current winning streak is 5 stakes wins in a row, including his most recent win, which was a G1 race in really nice company. He’s been consistantly on the board, finishing less  than 4th only 7 times in 29 starts. He was the 3yo SC Colt of the year last year and has more Stakes wins than any of his SC peers this year.

He’s 5th on the Top 10 Stakes winning horses this year, with 8, only All Jazzed up and Can’t Catch me have more stakes wins than he does.
He’s 6th on the Top 10 Points Winning Horses this year too.

I think he deseves a few accolades for the great year he’s having.
