I too have images of Barbaro in my home, where I can see and remember how good he was. January 29 this year marked the 10th birthday of Rachel Alexandra, whose photo holds pride of place on my office wall. Her story has had a happy ending, so this is a day of celebration to me, instead of the terrible grief I felt in 2007.
Did not remember this, although I remember that Friday in 8th grade French class very well. Thanks, Brian.
It would have taken a miracle. Sad news. Hope he was with people he recognized as nice humans.
Brian you have done a great job keeping a lid on the craziness, thank you. That boy has some long legs, I bet his momma was sore. Want to see them back home at Stonestreet.
He's beautiful, and I hope both mother and son continue to do well. Run a hole in the wind, baby boy.
You put my feelings into words. Still hoping for a chance to get to Kentucky and meet her one day.
Must the Zen Zombies show up to ruin every tribute to any other filly? Yap yap yap, don't you feel this great mare deseves better fans? I do. Ruffian was the most stunning and brilliant filly ever to set foot on a race track. Let her be praised.
Nonsense. Although when I see Zenyatta ranked about Kelso and Forego, among others, I do have to wonder if anyone knows anything about the history of horse racing who is frantically voting in an effort to put Zenyatta ahead of Secretariat, even if they truly believe her talent and race records are equal to his.
Always interesting to see that Zenyatta fans are sore winners as well as sore losers. Why are so many of them hateful and resentful? This is why I could never love that horse. I admired her, absoulutely, but her truly horrible fans kept me from appreciating everything she accomplshed. Rachel forever.
