  • airedale2008 · Personal Ensign proved what a champion she was that day. Daughter My Flag won the 1995 BC Juvenile Fillies race reminiscent of her mother’s historic run. My Flag’s daughter Storm Flag Flying won the 2002 BC Fillies to make it three generations of Breeders Cup winners, all trained by Shug McGauhey. · 554 days ago ·

She is the only horse ever to win three Breeders' Cup races of any kind. In three months she will no doubt be favored to win an almost unbelievable fourth consecutive BC Mile. She races against males more often than against her own gender. As if we needed any more proof of the greatness of Goldikova...Read More

  • KyOaksRunner · I really hope the turf comes up firm for the Prix Jacques le Marois in a couple of weeks, that would make Group 1 #15 if she wins! Rooting for her all the way. · 991 days ago ·

History was about to be made. As the field for the 1988 Breeders’ Cup Mile (gr. IT) turned for home over Churchill Downs’ deep, wet turf course, Miesque was on the move. Despite going four wide into the first turn and four wide coming out of the second turn, the French-trained daughter of Nureyev wa...Read More

The first ever two-time winner of the Breeders' Cup, and dam of French Classic winner and top sire, Kingmambo, was 27 years old. Ridden by Freddy Head, the current trainer of Goldikova, Miesque ...Read More

  • medlocke · A truly amazing filly. This has to be a really tough blow for trainer Freddie Head. Miesque was his Goldikova in the saddle instead of the Goldikova that he trained. · 1183 days ago ·

While doing my daily surf thing the other day, I noticed that a poster on Thoroughbred racing brought up the subject of his Top 10 Fillies of All Time. This got me to wondering, which were mine? So with pen and notepad (remember those?) I began jotting down names. My brain went on tilt when I reache...Read More

  • Thead'or · My favorite filly has always been Landaluce. I'm dissapointed that she has so few votes. In only 5 races she proved herself to be one of the greatest fillies of all time. You can geuss why I'm an avid Rachel fan. She reminds me so much of how Landaluce was. · 1199 days ago ·

Despite the delays and the freezing weather, Zenyatta garnered a large crowd to say goodbye; it speaks volumes about her appeal to know that people came to stand in the cold and dark – not to see her race, just to see her, briefly – before she goes to the farm to begin her new career.  And perh...Read More
