The Fastest Horse in the Gotham...by far

Looking at the Thoro-Graph numbers for Saturday’s Gotham, there is one horse whose numbers stand out far above the others. That’s not to say someone won’t make a big move forward and he won’t regress, but for speed purposes right now he stands alone, and is “the most likely winner,” according to Thoro-Graph’s Jerry Brown.


That horse is Mr. Fantasy, the brilliant and undefeated New York-bred who has handled state-breds with the utmost ease, winning by huge margins in both his starts. The son of E Dubai, out of the Spectacular Bid mare Twice Forbidden, is a half-brother to Big Apple Triple and Indiana Derby (gr. II) winner Tin Cup Chalice. What makes his Thoro-Graph numbers so impressive is that he has merely toyed with his opposition and has never even raised a sweat. He has a long rhythmic stride and seems extremely light on his feet. At this point we have no idea how good he is and how he will handle the big jump in class. But his speed figures are nothing short of extraordinary.
