Any list of the best American grass horses of all time would be incomplete without Hall of Famer Manila. Belmont Park was where the Leroy Jolley trainee made his graded stakes debut, in the G2 Saranac for owner B. M. Shannon. It would be one of just three defeats he’d ever experience on the lawn. Manila was back at Belmont the following year to take the G1 Turf Classic during a phenomenal campaign that earned him an Eclipse Award.
