Staggering to think your top 3 did not win a G1. They were very good sprinters. I reckon if they were around today, they would all have at least one. 
I remember the old joke about Show County, a rocket out of the gates and jockey B Wood glued to the saddle.

Good call re Big Dreams.  24 stakes performances, winning eight at Gp2 or Gp3 level, with six Gp1 placings.

Anyone remember a colt called Brave Warrior, trained in Brisbane by Eric Kirwin in the mid-1990’s?

Ran in 8 G1 races in his career & placed in 5 of them ranging in distance from 1500m-2400m.

The only reason he popped to mind is that there’s a Brave Warrior running around at Ballina today in Race 3.

The old Brave Warrior got bumped off in those G1 races by some damn good gallopers like Durbridge, Danewin & Turridu.

6 stakes wins and nine stakes placings just 22 starts.

Died prematurely after just two seasons at stud, but left 7 stakes-winners from only 107 live foals including four times Gp1 winner and excellent sire Show A Heart.
