Lenny one of the all-time greats after Miracle win
Champion driver Chris Alford says Lennytheshark is simply one of the all-time greats.
“You don’t see many horses who can win a Miracle Mile, Victoria Cup and an Inter (Dominion),” he said today after he paired with the David Aiken-trained superstar to take out the Miracle Mile at Menangle on Saturday night.
“It’s hard to compare horses from different eras,” Alford added. “Golden Reign was a super horse, Tailamade (Lombo) was great, but (Lenny) would have to be right up there now.”
For Alford, who for so long has been the benchmark when it comes to Group 1 success in the trots, Saturday night’s success was amazingly his first Miracle Mile.
