  1. It just shows how GREAT Nijinski was, to win ONE of the Triple Crown Classics is a testing feat but to win ALL THREE???? Last won by the great horse in 1970, FORTY SEVEN YEARS AGO!!!!!!!! Surely he must have been the best British horse ever.

  2. I was lucky enough to have been on Town Moor to witness Nijinsky’s win in 1970 before leaving for SA the following month.
    Yes, a true champion but – for the top horse I’ve ever seen – I still go with Derby and Arc winner, Mill Reef.
    For this year’s Leger, I took 6-1 each-way Defoe during my recent UK trip.
