What's outrageous is that somehow the Canes actually got someone to care e'nuff to devote time for smack....recently Cane smack was akin to tripping the kid with leg braces
LOL, I'm just amazed that you survived the suicide epidemic that swept through Kentucky, after UConn eliminated UK in the Tourney......you are a real trooper...........IPD: are you a Horse Racing fan? if so who is the best horse you ever watched? Best I ever saw was Easygoer, Cigar and Sunday Silence are tied for 2nd.
Dude, a week before the SEC-T, most UK fans would have been happy with just a Sweet 16 appearance...this UK team over-achieved to get to a FF. Any UK fan who commited seppuku over that loss thins the state of idiots
I remember Affirmed and Unbridled, among many others. I remember watching Secretariat blow the field away for his Derby. I live a short bike distance from the farms where Storm Cat and AP Indy live. In fact I've been up close to AP Indy at his barn, and if you follow bloodlines, AP Indy has super-sperm; ALOT of great horses over recent years has him as a sire or grand sire.
I was at the Derby when Sunday Silence won; in fact I've made every Derby since '87 except for one year...
The Affirmed and Alydar triple crown match up is one I wish I could have witnessed.I know all about Secretariat, my Dad would never miss a chance to tell me about him, I have only seen him run on replays.However I did see Risen Star blow away the field at the Belmont Classic, he was probably the best horse Secretariat ever sired.I remember AP INDY very well, he skipped the Derby and then took the Preakness. I have been kind of out of the horse racing game since 2007(haven't been to the track since my dad passed, he was the 1 who started taking me as a kid),but as far as bloodlines, the best sires when I was paying attention, were Mr.Prospector,Alydar,Halo,Danzig, and a couple others............as far as Unbridled who I neglected to address before, that is one of my all time favorites, I still remember when he won the Derby, and Frances genter and Carl nafzger holding hands celebrating, great moment, considering Mrs.Genter was around 90 years old and finally got a Derby. I also liked Strike the Gold, not only was he an Alydar colt just like Easygoer but I like horses that make their run late, and he had quite a kick........I was at that Breeders cup where Pat Day effed up and cost Easygoer the race vs Sunday Silence,EG was not good running in a sloppy track , which is why he lost the Derby, he was bumped and an inquiry popped up on the board in the Preakness, and when he finally got a fair shake, he blew awy Sunday Silence in the Belmont....sorry I got a bit carried away,I could talk horses for hours.....do you remember a Filly named Go for Wand?
