I think he was awesome. Beautiful horse & excellent breeding
I was watching some race video's on Youtube and found this of Silky. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FT_YxcoDhtY
Allow me to pose this question: If you could be a jockey and go back and ride any horse in any race, who would it be?

  • Jay S. · One time I got him in the "Boston Crab" and made him swear to eternal servant-hood before I released him. Of course, that lasted until I released him. · 453 days ago
  • Buckpasser · Jay. Exactly. Gotta let the kid know his proper place in the family hierarchy. Elmo gave the name Abby a two paws up. Tell Limpy. · 453 days ago

I caught the "Inside Information" piece on Silky Sullivan the other night. Holy Cow! How is it possible to be 41 lengths behind in a 6 furlong race and win!? Amazing. I don't think the term "closer" does him justice. It's like he ran in the ninth race and also won the eighth!!!

  • cocoa2 · Silky was quirky. Shoemaker described him as "breaking twice" in a race, as though he was stung by a bee of has woken up. As a yearling he was constantly outrunning his mates. · 631 days ago
  • travel_vic · He used to come to GGF every St Patricks Day and one year he broke lose on post parade, traversed the entire course, then trotted peacefully into the winner's circle as if it had been reserved for him...Still looked great when I saw him at 19 when he was the leading quarter horse sire in California. · 631 days ago
Smart Chic Olena was euthanized yesterday.

  • Mary Z. · Oh, Extreme apology for she not he. I could find no listing at equineline pedigree. · 785 days ago
  • cocoa2 · It's fine. Since your question asked his breed there is no reason you should know his gender. · 785 days ago
He was a funny horse, and decided when he wanted to run. His Kentucky Derby is a mystery, except that he was primarily a speed horse.
