  • goblin · Exactly, cocoa. Thank you for alerting us to the article, bp. Love Jim Wilson's idea of a road tour for the cast. The link appears lengthy, but I'll try... http://online.wsj.com/news/articles/SB10001424052702303725404579461363847850886?mg=reno64-wsj&url=http%3A%2F%2Fonline.wsj.com%2Farticle%2FSB10001424052702303725404579461363847850886.html · 151 days ago
Other than secretariat which modern day racer do you think has had the most positive effect in horse racing for the mass media? (As in drawing people into the sport) I know IHA had started to gather a large following from those that were not as familiar with the sport - but most were let down by his scratch in the Belmont (I know it was unavoidable, but I know people who lost interest after that point)

Happy Seventh Birthday Mine That Bird!!!
  • Peppermint Paddy · One of the best longshot wins ever, IMO. I recall after the race...my dad said ''Why didn't you tell me Leonard Blach owned the Bird?'' Back in the day, when my dad left Ruidoso and the quarters, he left all his clientel to Leonard - Still reminds me of my '50-1' mistake to this day lol Happy Bday, Lil guy!!! · 473 days ago

I wonder if they will have anything in the movie about the owner of MTB, daughter, Pamela, being a POI in the murder of her husband, a veterinarian
Always will be one of my favorites. His run for the roses is one of the most memorable achievements in horse racing.
maybe he'd have made a better sprinter
"50 to 1" starts shooting in New Mexico next month. It will be produced/directed by Jim Wilson, who produced Dances With Wolves and The Bodyguard. No word yet on who will play MTB, but the rumor is he will play himself along w/ a few doubles : ) http://www.thoroughbredtimes.com/national-news/2012/08/24/mine-that-bird-movie-to-begin-production-next-month.aspx

  • LAZMANNICK · Great Story jay s. If you google the Bloodhorse and in their search box type in “Hangin with Haskin Canoner ll” you’ll get a two or three part story abouh the horse and his trainer’s amazing adventure. Really good and informative reading. · 728 days ago
  • jay s. · Thanks LAZMANNICK. I'll check it out for sure. travel_vic...another great story. Very nice. · 728 days ago
Has a race of his own! From Las Cruces Sun Times: "A race formerly called the Borderland Derby will become the Mine That Bird Derby in 2013. The race for 3-year-olds will be run on Feb. 23 at Sunland Park. It will be the 13th running of the race, which covers a mile and a sixteenth. The race will have a guaranteed purse of $130,000..."
Wherever has icyhotboo gone?
I rewatched MTB's truly spectacular Derby win. We can study PP and handicap this race to death--only to have a perfect storm of horse peaking, race conditions, inspired riding and luck come together. He'll stand to be an inspiration to all those (really) dark horses out there and those looking for a huge pay out: http://www.minethatbirdthemovie.com/
Yeah i agree you should put him in some allowance races hes a gelding so he can't sire any foals. He could have another year in him.
Happy Birthday, Mine That Bird!
  • hammer64 · i love that little horse i think d wayne ruined him the owner messed up taking him away from Chip Wooley · 1205 days ago
Mine That Bird! I love you very much!! Come back please!!! T.T
Please, return the Mine that Bird T.T
Mine That Bird is a fantastic horse!!!<3
I would love to see him race again. Saw the pic of him on his web page in the sand with a big ball, pretty pathetic. At least put him where he can be in a paddock with grass under hooves.
  • dreamingofanna · I agree. Hes a gelding for christ sakes, run him in allowance races in New Mexico. I'm definately sure that there are hundreds of Birdie fans down there. · 1292 days ago
Yes! Return it! We love it. Very very very very very much <3333
I very very very very very very love this gelding!!!! Mine That bird, come back!!! ><
