Farm Hopping: Hello, Union Rags!

Earlier this week, I ventured to Lexington, Kentucky with Candice Curtis and Stacy Edwards to visit with some of our favorite equine stars.

First stop was Lane’s End Farm. We spent some quality time with the likes of After Market, Candy Ride, City Zip, Curlin, Discreetly Mine, English Channel, The Factor, Lemon Drop Kid, Pleasantly Perfect, Quality Road, Smart Strike, and Union Rags.

Seeing these equine legends brought back some handicapping memories. I was in the early stages of my stint with Racing On The Net when Lemon Drop Kid captured the Belmont Stakes, and he was one of my first significant online play of the day winners.

I made my first trek to Santa Anita Park for the 2003 Breeders’ Cup and Pleasantly Perfect won the Classic that year.

Thank you for posting the link, Stacy. I love your pictures!
Wow. Big Brown is beautiful. Great looking horse.
I mean Big Brown
I miss Union Rags :/ Bug Brown looks a little arab-like in that photo.
It was great I am still editing photos I took so many! here is the link: https://www.facebook.com/KentuckyHorseRacingPhotos?ref=hl
Can someone post the link to view your photos of my favorite horses you were so fortunate to visit. I can't wait to see them.
Thank you for posting the pictures, it is the first I've seen of Hansen since he retired. They all look great!
Thanks, Kay. Glad you liked the photos. I also heard that Big Brown had an infection but he seems better now. I agree that fans should visit farms if they get a chance. We will definitely be going back, especially since we recently relocated to Kentucky.
I am glad Big Brown is doing better. We visited Three Chimneys last October and he was in isolation then, as he had kicked his stall, gotten a bad cut, which then was subsequently infected. We did get to watch Caleb's Pose getting his bath, which was very cool. Visiting the farms is a wonderful experience, one which I wish all horse lovers could experience, and I am glad you got to do this. Seeing your pictures brought back happy memories of visiting Three Chimneys last year.
Brilliant Speed should have still been running on turf this year. Stay Thirsty looks innocent, like I'd like to free him, lol.
Glad you enjoyed the photos, Mary. We are happy that we are able to share them with everyone.
Looks like you had a very nice time. Thank you for sharing the photos. I checked out the fb and flicker sites.
That was awesome, Stacy. I enjoyed seeing some of the older sires like Point Given, Lemon Drop Kid, and Thunder Gulch. We will definitely do that again!
That was a fun day. It was a great experience and I loved getting my picture taken with Stay Thirsty and Hansen!
