Who is the best of them all? The debate around the best 3 year olds in the land is hotting up, and like most things in South Africa, it is becoming an inter provincial contest.

Here are some comments from Racingweb Livetalk :



Three year old form has me puzzled… though Pierre Jourdan is standing the test of time. Congratulations to Alexander Stables.

He’s (Pierre Jourdan) done everything asked of him; let’s see the 3 year old features in KZN…. Hopefully he takes on Noordhoek Flyer and Bravura

JP, you and I both have been singing this horse’s (Pierre Jourdan) praises now for a long while. Could not agree with you more that PJ is the best 3 year old in the land by a street.

I do feel that Havasha still has something in the tank and can still run some decent races.

The thing that intrigues me most of PJ is that in my opinion his best distance will be 1800m and up. He has been winning while running over distances short of his very best.

Hold on tight boys, the KZN season is going to be a cracker!!

Here we go AGAIN……….

PJ wins 4 races over 1450m and 1400m and people are talking about him running and being even better over further.

1400m, or the extended sprint as it’s known, is a specialist race and often won by horses that do very very well over that distance and not so well over 1600m or 1200m.

To say PJ is in the same league as Bravura is NON SENSE. Bravura has shown that he can stay at the highest level. PJ has showed that over 1400m he is the best in the land.
