Claiborne Farm posted on Facebook the following:
"We would like to start a new tradition today. For every new stakes winner that we (Claiborne Farm) have owned and raised either solely, or in a partnership, we will be posting the respective stakes winner’s picture from when they were a foal. We hope you enjoy!
To get this started, we will honor our most recent stakes winner, Apropos. Apropos is a five year old mare by First Samurai out of Apt. Apropos recently won the American Beauty Stakes at Oaklawn Park. She is out of a half-sister to Blame and is trained by Al Stall. This photo was taken by Dell Hancock in the spring of 2009."

It will be a lot of fun to see all the Claiborne photos. I hope they put one of Swale up. Apropos was a very classy looking foal.

I hope so, too. I would think so- although I am getting teary thinking about him-some you just never get over.

On a happy note, she was indeed quite the little beauty.

He had to be bottle fed when he was very young when Maggy Hawk became ill, perhaps that was the best thing they could find to use at the time.
