Observations of buyers and sellers at Keeneland's November Breeding Stock Sale.
- By Ray Paulick
By Ray Paulick --Sometimes it's easy to forget what's important about the game. People can argue long into the night about seemingly important issues like marketing, takeout rates, or medication and drug testing, but then a remarkable talent like Seattle Slew comes along and reminds everyone that the horse is king of this sport.
Trainer Billy Turner said the late Seattle Slew stood alone in comparison to racing's other Triple Crown winners. "He was undefeated. He set track records. He did everything he had to do." Yet Turner said some people resented the horse who won the 1977 Triple Crown, just four years after Secretariat.

I) winner Fusaichi Pegasus. Unlike Fusaichi Pegasus, Point Given will not shuttle to the Southern Hemisphere.
