Everyone knows how I feel about the Trainer. He got what he needed out of the Colt and is getting paid.

Even if voted as either, Justify will always be a questionable super-champion.

Obviously, he will never reach the status of his stable mate AP who went out in glory beating older horses in the top race of the country.

Of course retiring top tier 3y olds in nothing new and has been going on since the days of MoW (we also did not see a 4yo Secretariat either) albeit Justify did not have the chance to justify (!) his greatness and should be viewed as a precocious freak whose mission was limited to the TC and no more.

I know he is. And that basically shows you a heck of a lot about what is wrong with the sport.

Both MoW and Secretariat beat some of the best older horses running.

Exactly. The same does not apply to Justify, this is part of the point I am trying to make.
