Thanks so very much for those pictures of A. P. Indy on his 28th birthday. Happy Birthday Indy, you beautiful and beloved boy. Words can't express how happy I am that he's been able to live a long, happy life.

His sire, Seattle Slew, lived to be 28. I hope his greatest son lives longer.

Indy's maternal grandsire, Secretariat, died too young in October 1989 just six months after Indy's birth.

I was privileged to see Slew, Secretariat and Indy run, and am so grateful that their legacy lives on through Indy's sons and daughters.

Life is a continuum.

TVG's Caleb Keller shown visiting AP--stands there like a kid's pony. :)
I ran marathons. I saw the Taj Mahal by Moonlight. I drove Highway 1 in a convertible. I petted Zenyatta.

Super Saver is shuttling to Argentina. How long before Super Saver stays down there? He's kind of gotten quiet.

I agree that after 2015 he cooled down a lot, but I remember reading last year he was sent a pretty decent number of nice mares in 2016 - even if the almost doubling of his fee was ridiculous. I'd give it a couple more years before he gets bounced, his best crop could still be yet to come, and he is still standing for $50,000 - which is still too much in my opinion.
