I was being sarcastic about the coastal rivalry, those were fun times especially when coupled with Affirmed vs. Alydar. Pat Day can never escape that baggage.

I was never hooked on Funny Cide but out of curiosity how do you judge Santos' ride in slop of the Belmont?
That's easy.
Empire Maker was the better horse. In fact Funny Cide was 3rd best.
The last thing you want in the slop is to introduce something new to a horse. Santos kept Funny Cide's face clean, and got away with easy fractions of 1:13 & 1:38. He wasn't good enough.
