Auld Lang Syne for Race Fans

Happy New Year, my friends ... Be safe, and all the best for a happy, healthy 2013!

 

 

 

Should Affirmed be forgot
and never brought to mind
Should Beldame be forgot
and auld lang syne

 

For Citation, my dear
we'll take a cup of kindness yet
for auld lang syne


And surely you'll buy your Exterminator
and surely I'll buy Forego 
And we'll take a cup o' kindness yet
for auld lang syne

 

For Go For Wand, my dear
we'll take a cup of kindness yet
for auld lang syne


Imp has run about the slopes
and picked the daisies fine 
But John Henry wandered many a weary foot
since auld lang syne

 

For Kelso, my dear
we'll take a cup of kindness yet
for auld lang syne


Man O’ War paddled in the stream
from morning sun till din 
But Native Dancer has roared
since auld lang syne

 

For Omaha, my dear
we'll take a cup of kindness yet
for auld lang syne


And there's Quadrangle my trusty friend 
And give us a hand o' thine 
And Ruffian will take a right good-will draught
for auld lang syne

 

For Secretariat, my dear
we'll take a cup of kindness yet
for auld lang syne

 

Should Urban Sea be forgot
and never brought to mind
Should Vindication be forgot
and auld lang syne

 

And surely you'll buy your Whirlaway
and surely I'll buy Xenomania 
And we'll take a cup o' kindness yet
for auld lang syne

 

For Yonder, my dear
for Zev
we'll take a cup of kindness yet
for auld lang syne

URR, these are only horses that are no longer with us.
I'm surprised you didn't use Zenyatta for Z.
Like, airedale.
May 2013 be a healthy and happy year for all of us, and especially the horses we love.
Agree MaryZ
True that, Mary.

 ZATT's Star of the Week 

Oscar Performance

Meet Brian Zipse 


Brian has been a passionate fan of horse racing his entire life. Taken to the races at a very young age, he has been lucky enough to see all the greats in person from Secretariat, Forego, and Ruffian through Rachel Alexandra, Zenyatta, and American Pharoah. Before coming to the Nation, Brian displayed his love for the sport through the development of his horse racing website, which quickly became one of the most popular blogs in the game. 

  
As Editor of Horse Racing Nation, Brian authors a daily column as Zipse at the Track, or ZATT for short, adds his editorial flare to the overall content of the website, and co-hosts the popular racing show, HorseCenter. A big supporter of thoroughbred aftercare, he serves as the President of The Exceller Fund.


Brian's work has also been published on several leading industry sites. He has consulted for leading contest site Derby Wars, is both a Hall of Fame and NTRA poll voter, and is a Vox Populi committee member. 

  
A horse owner and graduate of DePaul University, Brian lives just outside of Louisville with his wife Candice and daughter Kendra.
