I was thinking of starting such a thread on the evolution of sport and how it seems only in horse racing are we going backwards. However like most of my potential threads they stop after the first line coz i’m simply a lazy b*stard.

My comparison was going to be with running/athletics. Pick whatever distance you like we continue break records and get better. The best way to record horses achievements though differs since every horse may carry a different weight over differing goings and courses.<br>My point being that only timeform seem to have applied fairly standard criteria for us to compare horses of different generations. Are they accurate? i dont know but like you say they have arlke and flyingbolt way out in front.
