The Primary photo uploaded here of TW is from http://www.pedigreequery.com/timely+writer. It's a cool site too. I tried to put the crediting under the photo but the upload wouldn't let me.
Check out the story I attached in the Biography tab about Timely & his connections before Timely missed the Kentucky Derby due to colic surgery. It's a funny story and gives you an amusing version of their personalities.

  • qrluna · ... for loving the sport of kings. Wikipedia says"Timely Writer was buried at the head of the stretch at Belmont Park, an honor previously granted only to the great filly Ruffian." I am assuming the $100,000 Timely Writer Stakes at Gulfstream Park is named after him but I'm not sure yet. · 2054 days ago
