  • Buckpasser · Mr. Personality. Talk about inheriting the fire and nasty disposition of Hastings, he stomped one of his grooms to death, routinely savaged his trainer and every assistant starter he could find. · 408 days ago
  • Buckpasser · Lauren Hillenbrand has a wonderful story about him straight from the mouth of Tommy Luther who rode him. Luther was brought in by War Relic's trainer because of his reputation for fearlessness. Luther was shocked at difficult War Relic was. They got him finally to the races at Narragansett and he was fine for most of the race. Suddenly War Relic stopped dead next to the rail and catapulted Luther into the infield where the racing harrows was kept. Luther narrowly missed being speared to death. · 408 days ago

  • Buckpasser · Kay. I can understand FP having issues from the treatment you speak of. But MOW was a handful, his sons War Relic, War Admiral, Hard Tack etc. were difficult. Seabiscuit who was a grandson of MOW and a great great grandson of Hastings was a handful at times. So that line really was noted for temperment issues. · 676 days ago
  • Buckpasser · Kay. One thing I found in Vosburgh's book Horse Racing in America 1866-1921, he speaks of a horse Banastar who had terrible temperment issues because he was highly inbred to Lexington. He has some information about Cinderella. Noting she was very difficult and Hastings took after her, but says nothing about Plaudit or her other foals Migraine etc. being difficult. · 676 days ago
