Poor boy..I was really shocked when I've got acquainted with him story..
  • buckpasser · The only horse to ever beat two TC winners. Horrible ending that could have been avoided. There is a fund the Exceller fund that helps other horses not end up as he did. Also many other places that do the same thing. Our Mims takes care of brood mares. southern Calif rescue--the Seabiscuit Rescue takes care of horses found in feedlots in Calif. best Friends helps horses as well. There are so many funds that help horses to avoid the slaughterhouse. If you are horrified about what happened with Exceller, please consider donating to these funds or others. · 793 days ago

  • likin sparks · Yes, 33 is correct and I'll use a couple sources sometimes to confirm such as Equibase, Pedigree Online Horse Database, they have good stats on international horses. · 940 days ago
Surprising that there are no comments on him
  • JohnByrd · What a great horse, and his victory over Seattle Slew and Affirmed in the Jockey Club Gold Cup may be one of the great races of all time. It certainly was historical! · 1017 days ago
  • likin sparks · It's good to remember his accomplishments and he was great, his ending was heart breaking though. · 1017 days ago
