Great winner's circle picture tv. You can also see Ferdinand running second. Thanks.
To me, the way Shackleford ran with his head a little lower always reminded me of Snow Chief. Both were so full of heart.
  • travel_vic · First Cal-bred millionaire. Well managed animal. Florida Derby and Preakness were great ones as I was able to purchase the photos of both. Two nice old guys, WHO HAD PAID THEIR DUES in racing owned him as well. · 665 days ago
  • rafirox · Eskendreya. Look at his Wood :). His head dives so low, as Tom Durkin put it "That determined stride of his" · 665 days ago
What a tough little guy that defied the odds, literally. I loved watching him run.

  • footlick · It still is the fastest dirt mile ever by a filly as far as I know. Her splits were amazing in the Silver Screen. She was not fashionably bred as far as I remember. She certainly ran them off their feet. · 759 days ago
I do wish Snow Chief's Strub Stakes was in his list of races. Without a pace setter like Groovy, he got the mile and a quarter . And did it in a sharp time as well I 2 minutes flat.
