Remember when it was him and baffert hogging the derby? Baffert won left and right during the breeders cup races as well as pletcher. Last year tho in the Breeders cup races pletcher only won with Shanghai Bobby and I can't remember if I saw baffert in the winners circle. This year baffert has no starters for the derby and pletcher had like 5 (?) Lol none won. But oh come belmont day and Curlin has a belmont stakes winner called Palace Malice who struggled home to the finish line. Luckily he won't ever have to do that again. Come Travers dsy and we see what trainer comes out on top lol as well as what horse.
I'm wandering away from the topic a bit, but just noticed that Secretariat's Glory has a half-brother called In A Blaze O' Glory. I found a sweet video about him on youtube. (Was going to post the link, but it's a little far from the topic.) Anyway, he was reconditioned as a young person's show jumper and pleasure horse, and it really made me happy. I just love to see former racehorses enjoying a second career, especially when they are so obviously loved and well-cared for. They have so much to offer.
Thats weird, the video is gone. I was just watching it 30 mins ago
jen_bloom....there really isn't a right or wrong....we kinda wander where discussions take us...usually get back to main topic sooner or later...and WELCOME
Secretariat still has direct descendants still able to have foals?? Wow.... *face surprised* Well, if Secretariat's Glory is in the Derby, I know who I'm rooting for... - Of course, in 2015 maybe we can root for Coz, and in 2016, little Red. A lady can always dream.
Thank you Jen! Now here is another challenge for all you young sleuths out there (Rachel, ha-ha)….can someone find and post a pic of Secretariat’s Glory?
