  • @Ashton, wonderful article on her.... She will always be special to me because she was the mother of my most FAVORITE horse as a child-- A.P. Indy! And was actually the first mother of any thoroughbred I'd ever known.

    I don't know how to post, so can someone post a picture of Geisha (1943). She was the dam of Native Dancer my favorite as a teenager. Of 22 starts, he only lost one and came in second in the 1953 Kentucky Derby. He won the other two Triple Crown races. I was 14 that year. It has been hard learning about his weak bones problem that he passed on to his descendants.

    Oh, love this thread. Thanks for starting it, RR12 and Rachel.

    Forgot to put down rules.

    Rules:

    . Your mare must have at least one famous racehorse in her progeny listings.

    . That progeny must have at least 600,000$ in track earnings (for horses after 1950). Poor racers turned good stud or broodmare do not apply.

    . You must provide a photograph of your chosen mare.

    Please respect the rules of this discussion.
  • Can anyone find a picture of Laughter? I can't find any =(
  • Yeah...the rules should have been put down at the very beginning. Ok...If you want me to remove My Mims...I will...Please advise.

    You can keep Our Mims on here... It's just from here on out, mothers of famous racehorses only. And in all honesty I should have put the rules down at the beginning.... But by the time I remembered it was too late to edit.

    Miesque, pictured here at Lane's End in 1994. Dam of Kingmambo, Miesque's Son, and Kitalpha (unraced, but a great sire). Goldikova surpassed Miesque's two consecutive wins in the BC Mile (turf), and we were all lucky to see that historic event take place on live television. But, Miesque...what a great mare she was.

    Wind In Her Hair

    dam of Deep Impact (whose sire was Sunday Silence), winner of $12.8 Million dollars. He has since turned into a sire of sires himself

  • Wow. What a beauty My Flag was.

    Thanks for posting the picture of Geisha for me PG. There is nothing fragile looking about her legs. They look very sturdy, in fact. Maybe Native Dancer got the flaw from his sire. Or the combination of genetics from the two parents.

    .
    Yes...I remember we posted her passing last month in Horse Racing Injuries & Fatalities and were concern as to how old a mare can be bred. It was a sad incident. But foaling can always present risks at any age for the mare.

    Sorry guys, I did look through all the pages and genuinely missed it. Wasn't trying to duplicate anyone else's post. I'll just leave it to the experts from now on

    That's okay crdolce_777. I screwed up on a few already...even after checking through the earlier pages too! :oD
  • Also, crdolce_777, your post is correct. The earlier post said Mining My Own was the dam of Mind That Bird, but his name--based on his dam's (and sire's) name--is Mine That Bird, as you said. Sadly Dullahan passed away--of colic, I believe.
  • Thanks, PG and VA :)
  • RachelRachel Member
    yea, Dullie died of Colic :( he went into surgery but died, i think he was euthanized on the table :'( its such a shame. and yes, Mine That Bird was a half brother to Dullahan in that they shared the same dam lol. cant correct it now since we only get 4 hours edit time now, boo :/
