A great pic of Exterminator either pre race, or post race. He is looking pretty regal. https://www.facebook.com/#!/photo.php?fbid=687107514673342&set=a.189145141136251.61389.189123901138375&type=1&theater

  • Mary Z. · Hey Jay S. Good to see that your guy will be facing Cali speed early in the year. Not easy to do. · 200 days ago
  • Jay S. · Mary, I'm certainly excited about it...for sure. I expect him to run big. · 200 days ago
Old Bones and his paddock companion Peanuts. https://www.facebook.com/HorseRacingHistory/photos/a.306750466081390.68483.305963939493376/583443301745437/?type=1&theater
  • Buckpasser · I Have a great picture of Exterminator leading the post parade for the Exterminator Handicap at Pimlico with Peanuts leading Old Bones. Jay S. Put it up on the this site for me. It is an original picture. And Peanuts was the real handful and Zold Bones was the gracious professional as always. · 216 days ago

Buckpasser. I read this part of Exterminator's book a few weeks back, but it touched me and I think about it quite often. "Exterminator was conscious, but all efforts to get him up were futile. He was shutting down. 'Get Peanuts out of here,' Terry ordered. The pony was frantic, squealing and running around the stall, now and then stopping to nudge the big horse. It took several men to finally neutralize the kicking hind end long enough to get the pony into another stall." Peanuts III was well into his 20s. It occurred to me that this is what it looks like when a gentle, old soul is doing everything within his power to make the hands of time stand still while his world was crashing around him, being fully aware of what was happening. At least, that's the way I see it. It made me want to set the Delorean to Aug 1945 so I could help console him.

For the Old Bones fans....https://www.facebook.com/OneTreeHill#!/photo.php?fbid=657491480968279&set=pb.189123901138375.-2207520000.1391546571.&type=3&theater
I love Old Bones!!! He could've run Man O' War into the ground!

  • buckpasser · I don't think any one would consider Exterminator overhyped. When Old Bones came back to lead the post parade for the Exterminator Handicap at Pimlico, Alfred Vanderbilt said that there wasn't a horse in the race who was fit to carry Old Bones' blanket. · 229 days ago
Exterminator won the 1918 Kentucky Derby and was Horse of the Year in 1922. Old Bones appears to be the only seven year old to accomplish this feat. Kelso was HOY at seven, but was not entered in the Triple Crown races.
Buckpasser, Exterminator and Sun Briar's situation leading-up to the Kentucky Derby reminded me very much of Swale's and Devil's Bag.

  • Buckpasser · Yes. Thoroughbred Legends Exterminator by Eva Jolene Boyd. One of my favorite books is A Sound of Horses: The World of Racing From Eclipse to Kelso by David Alexander. He saw Exterminator and has great stories about him and Kelso and others. Can be found second hand on ebay and Amazon. Have seen it for $25 or lower. There is a kids book Old Bones by Mildred Mastin Pace which is still published. · 300 days ago
  • Jay S. · Hey, thanks BP. I'm on the search. · 300 days ago
Hey everyone, go to Exterminator's profile and then to his "Photo" section. You can see him leading the post parade with his little buddy Peanuts. Thanks BP!

  • Jay S. · BP, for some reason it's not coming thru. I think that site is overloaded. Was it an execute, or stand by? · 306 days ago
  • Jay S. · If anyone would like me to email you BP's photo of Exterminator and Peanuts, just send me an email at wtcbcc2@mail.com. You can create a fake email on mail.com in about 1 minute. If I email it, the picture is much bigger and clearer. · 306 days ago
Such a great guy, and one of my personal favorites. I wonder what would have happened if the match race with Man O' War came through?

  • buckpasser · Sort of like Cleopatra brought into the Saratoga Cup to prevent Exterminator from having a walkover. Only she was a far better horse than Hoodwink. With the match race with MOW and Sir Barton, SB carried more weight 126 I believe than MOW. Also the track in Canada was so hard that SB wa having a hard time and did not run well. Soe people who saw the race said that SB was eased. Certainly he was retired soon after · 959 days ago
  • cocoa2 · Maybe Hoodwink wasn't the best competitor but Big Red still took 6 seconds off the track record, something that is done VERY rarely. · 959 days ago
One amazing horse :)
