    is it bad that ive learned more about Thoroughbred History than my own Human History?

    LOL ill say...we have like 4 pages already! haha
  • That just gives the viewers all the more to look at! Lol
  • Still, a few important mares remain elusive..... Such as Swing On and Ruby Slippers.
  • You can find out about your human background...I did a genetics thing thru National Geographic genome project to try and find out something about my dad's side...he was adopted, so we had NO clue about his family.
    I sure appreciate all the efforts of you posters of the 'golden girls'...fabulous!

  • You found her! Yay!
  • Still can't find Ruby Slipper tho'...also can't find a photo of the first TC winner Sir Barton's Dam...Lady Sterling2. Otherwise, I believe we might have all the TC winners' dams....need to check that however.

    Sigh... I can usually find photos of the sires...but some of the dams are hard to find.

    Her dam was Balance LOL, how ironic

    I couldn't find Lady Sterling or Ruby Slippers either.... But that's why this discussion is posted! To honor those unsung heroes that, without them, none of our most famous racehorses would exist. This is to honor the mothers who went through so much and foaled, raised, and taught our famous horses.... Building the strong foundation that would lead them to greatness.
  • So aside from Lady Sterling...do we have all the TC dams on the list? I scanned through and I think we all got em. Need a second eye however.
