  • Buckpasser · Thinking of seeing the great old timers. I remember in 1983 when Kelso and Forego lead the post parade for the Jockey Club Gold Gup. Over 30,000 people turned out and it was a great time to see the old champs. And yes Kelso did die the next day. But I can assure you that he loved being back on the track. I don't think he ever left it in spirit. I have always wondered why the tracks don't do more old timers day. Aqueduct and Belmont did many of them and they were huge hits. One in 1963 that I remember well had great jockeys like Willie Knapp who piloted Exterminator and Upset and Eddie Arcaro and others. Great horses like Find, Kelso, Carry Back and Steeplechaser Amber Diver were there. It was a huge hit. · 418 days ago
  • travel_vic · Good friend raced an old swayback until 11 (he won one at that age) and then used him as a work mate and travelling companion for young horses for years. The old guy revelled in that job and was stiil going in his late 20's the last time I talked to him. · 418 days ago
Gutsy Gelding! Loved when Tom Durkin called his races.
Although Funny Cide is long retired from horse racing, it was quite an experience to get to race him again on Horse Racing Fantasy developed by Horse Racing Simulation LLC at www.horseracegame.com/. This extremely fun horse racing simulation offers us a chance to race horses of the past, including Funny Cide, giving both veteran gamers and beginners their own chance to experience the thrilling sport of horse racing in the virtual world.
If you could choose, who would you rather own: Big Brown or the gutsy gelding Funny Cide?
Is the triple crown fever like this every year a horse wins the preakness and the ky derby? Excuse me, I don't really know much about it being I hadn't followed horse racing until the previous year
My favorite geldings would probably be Native Diver, Exterminator, Phar Lap, and Old Rosebud.
I got to meet Funny Cide at the Kentucky Horse Park in may. It was amazing!
