2003 Horse of the Year Contenders

Top Horse of the Year candidate Mineshaft

Halfbridled is a lock for 2-year-old filly honors, but could she also deserve Horse of the Year?

Now that the Breeders' Cup and most other big races are over for the year, it is time to start the debate over who deserves to win Horse of the Year honors for 2003. This year there is no clear cut winner since the top candidate prior to the Breeders' Cup, Mineshaft, retired in early October. Here are some of the top contenders with a link to a full profile with photo and 2003 race record for each. Check them out, make your decision as to who is most worthy, and cast your vote!
