    Mine is pretty obvious and does have a hint of hindsight bias attached but Frankel miles clear at halfway in the Guineas was a wtf moment and a half.

    The flat; Camelot being denied the Triple Crown under dubious circumstances
    Jumps; Faugheen’s blistering win at the Punchestown Champion Hurdle, or Coneygree’s Gold Cup, a setting a gruelling pace from start to finish

    That’s mine too David, Frankel’s incredible 2000 Guineas win and being there to witness it. :heart:

    Have to mention Kool Kompany winning the Craven in 2015 and Sky Lantern winning the 1000 Guineas in 2013.

    1. Tiger Roll’s win in The Munster National.
    A proper “wow” moment for me. The rest is history.

    2. Closely followed by his first Grand National

    3. Getting into the Winners Enclosure with Outlaw Tom at Hexham

    Flat: Frankel breezing alongside St Nicholas Abbey and Farrh in the Juddmonte International, as though they were selling platers.

    Jumps: Sprinter Sacre’s triumphant return in his second Champion Chase.

    On the Flat it is Frankel first and the rest nowhere! I would add his win in the Queen Anne to those already mentioned.

    Enable’s win in the Oaks in a thunderstorm was memorable and the announcement of a major talent.

    Black Caviar’s dramatic win at Royal Ascot was memorable too. I was at Down Royal watching the race on the big screen. I think the whole crowd collectively gasped when the jockey dropped his hands!

    Over jumps, being on Neptune Collonges at 40/1 in the Grand National was exciting! And being at Aintree when Cue Card won after falling in the Gold Cup was memorable. The cheer when he cleared the last is the loudest I have ever heard at Aintree.

    AP McCoy winning Sports Personality of the year was good
    Canford Cliffs 2011 Queen Anne beating Goldikova
    Toronado Sussex stakes
    Sprinter Sacre 2nd Champion Chase was there incredible atmosphere
    also the deaf of silence when Annie Power went down for that famous 4 timer
    Faugheen winning the Champion Hurdle a month after losing my Wife was a nice release as we had been backing him most part of 10 months
    Winning any Competition on here but the 2012 Aintree win was a tense affair as my Wife (Grotbagss66 was back in 2nd) very competitive battles between us.

    Probably Marsha winning the Nunthorpe, assumed she’d just been chinned when Dettori punched the air so was delighted when the result was called.

    I was going to say the performance of Pinatubo at Goodwood, but for me, his win at The Curragh. I was blown away, he is the best 2 Year Old I’ve seen.

    I also meant to mention Treve’s second win in the Arc. When you consider all the problems she had, it was a tremendous training performance by Criquette to get her back

    And here comes sprinter sacre!

    Was there and nothing beat that moment

    No hesitation at all, Frankel’s Guineas.

    Astonishing. Will live with me forever.

    Frankel and sprinter sacre are the stand outs

    Outside of that maybe cue card doing vautour on the line in the king george

    Or arrogate in the Dubai world cup when he fell out the stalls and won anyway, that was a freakish performance

    Cue Card winning the King George & Sprinter Sacre winning his second Champion Chase.

    Frankel for me as well – seeing him in the flesh at Goodwood and the way he moved to post were just as good as watching him race.
