Wins that gave me "that" feeling
Zenyatta BC Classic
Personal Ensign BC Classic
Allicansayis Wow (had to throw that in)
Easy Goer's Belmont
Best Pal's PC Classic
When they dq'd The Wicked North
Well if we're talking about that "feeling", without regards to whether or not it's among the greatest, for me I'd say Risen Star's '88 Belmont Stakes win and Easy Goer's '89 Belmont Stakes. When Risen Star won his race, he recorded the second fastest time ever and also the fourth widest winning margin, that margin which still stands. The following year, Easy Goer eclipsed Risen Star's time and spanked Sunday Silence by eight lengths, to deny him the Triple Crown. Secretariat's '73 Preakness would probably come next among the "feeling" experiences for me.
You mean the one where she went to her knees at the start? Meh...

Well heck, if it's JUST feeling, then I admit I cried when Mrs Gentry's Unbridled won the Derby.
