We'll have to agree to disagree. Yeah Hooked On Scotch lost the Melbourne Cup final fair and square, but at least he made the final (truthfully a few superior dogs to the winner lost the Melbourne Cup final, but that's a different argument. The dog that showed up and jumped made it's own luck run a great race when it mattered most).
Anyway how many times has sennachie beat hooked on scotch in a full field or 2 out? I have no problems with sennachie, he's a super quick dog, but Hooked on Scotch has him covered
