Silver Girls

Since Golden Girls seems to have become a wonderful and popular discussion. I thought it a good idea to post Silver Girls! Silver Girls will be dedicated to those mares, who may not have or yet been successful in the breeding shed.... But left hoofprints in history as The Greats of the tracks. General rules apply, but in case some have forgotten... I shall post below, buit most of all: enjoy!

Rules:
. Chosen mare/filly must have made at least $300,000 on the racetrack.
. Mare/filly's profile must contain name, pedigree, earnings, race record, date of birth and (if applicable) date of death.
(Optional) . You may post a brief history, prominent wins, awards, and honors for the filly/mare
(Optional) . You may also post main Jockey, Trainer, and Owner(s)
. New, and more enabling rules will be added if/when the 20th page is reached. Other rules will be added afterwards.
. It would be preferable if you provided a head profile of your chosen mare/filly (other pictures may be added after it.)
I'll post an example below:

    I think this new thread is a great link to cover all our wonderful fillies & mares. They all should have a place to be featured. Sorry colts and stallions, but these "girls" are just as important! :oD
    Looks like we have "regular contributors for images" for these threads...Rachel for In Memorium, New Stallions, New Foals among others, RR12 for Silver GIrls and Paniolo_Gal for Golden Girls and part-time Old Friends. Love the interplay between these threads! But we always welcome everyone in the forum who want to be contributors or provide "leads" as well to these threads! :oD
  • Saw this new topic last night but was too sleepy to comment. Great topic RR12. I look forward to learning about some more special "girls."
  • One of my new favorite threads. Golden Girls is super interesting, but I love learning about these track champions even more!
  • Everyome is free to post a Silver Girl on here, as long as they please respect the rules of this discussion.
