I don’t believe Lester was as good as they make him out to be either. As for Gordon what’s his name if the jockeys were any good he would not have set that record . Right? And there was Ali; who did he ever beat ? Nobody equal to today’s heavyweights.The boxers of the sixtees were clowns. Ask George Forman. As for Vincent winning three nationals and three gold cups and three champion hurdles before he decided to go flat racing! Not worth mentioning since they did not know how to train in  those days.I mean that was the FIFTIES. The reason we cannot beat their records is because we are so much better.Right!
