Sadly passed those feet on to his descendants.
One final point of interest: Azucar was bred in Ireland by Edward Kennedy who stood Roi Herode and bred his son The Tetrarch and also bred Dark Ronald as well. It was Kennedy's Estate that sold Azucar to Widener.
Sword. Discovery is on my list as is his sire Display.
Cocoa. Ok will do. Lisa. Thanks. I have several more that I am working on.
Cocoa. If you are planning to do anything on Top Row, let me know and I will do a different horse.
TV. I am not saying Pollard's blindness didn't affect the outcome of the race, but I don't think it was the only reason Seabiscuit lost.
Cocoa. I know he is one of your favorites. I liked him a great deal, particularly after reading about his sire Peanuts.
Also I find it surprising that Pollard wasn't on the look out for Rosemont in the race. After all Rosemont had just defeated Seabiscuit in the San Antonio--a race leading up to the Big Cap and Rosemont even gave him weight. In the Big Cap, Rosemont was the top weight at 124 giving Seabiscuit 10 lbs. the chart for the race says "Seabiscuit....followed the pace under steady rating to the stretch where he went to the front, but, although going gamely to the end and saving ground could not resist the winner."
LAZ. Will do. Hopefully I will be able to post one of Top Row soon.
However, I have the original photos of the victory and stretch drive and winners circle and from that it is surprising that Pollard didn't hear Rosemont on his outside or even feel him nearby as a Rosemont is lapped right on the Bis unit.
