    I really miss the Budweiser Thoroughbred Digest show. Was the only televised coverage of Horse racing back then. Bet Twice had a good rivalry with Alysheba, but Alysheba won a lot more money and killed Bet Twice in the breeding shed. Alysheba is a Triple Crown winning caliber horse doomed by a jockey not in the same class at the time. If Pat Day was Alysheba's jockey during the 87' triple crown races we'd have 12 Triple Crown winners instead of 11. McCarron was Alysheba's only weakness.

    Both Sheba and BT had their game on that day. Pretty fast early fractions and only 3/4 of a length separated them at the finish. Sheba was a 1-dimensional closer while BT had tactical speed. Perret knew his horse inside and out and always got the best out of him. I grew up 15 minutes away from Monmouth Park so BT was my favorite in this rivalry although I think Sheba was actually the better horse. BT also benefitted from excellent handling by trainer Jimmy Croll.
