Is Lady Eli beginning to mellow now she’s preparing for a new career?
There are no orange traffic cones set up as a warning barrier around her territory, and her primary visitors these days are a just small gaggle of plucky Canada geese. She’s miles away from the nearest racetrack now. Only the sounds of soft falling snow and nickers from nearby paddocks reach her ears on the chill breeze of the winter morning.

Lady Eli, the tempestuous whirlwind whose inner fire could spark trepidation among those near her but fueled her recovery from laminitis and improbable return to G1 victories, is settling in to the quiet, pastoral life at John Sikura’s Hill ‘n’ Dale Farms near Lexington.

“She’s doing everything right,” said farm manager John Rasmussen of the 6-year-old, who was crowned America’s champion turf female during the Eclipse Awards ceremony yesterday at Gulfstream Park. “Hopefully, she’ll continue to do so. She’s just a very special horse.”

It looks like one of the legs was stripped of the baby fuzz below the canon bone. You can see on the other leg the dark spot where the patches have started to fall off. I think this baby could be a true black... or a pretty darn dark bay/brown.

Agreed. It's a stunning photo that caught the mares almost forming a heart.

two different people. plenilune had the fantasy stable-that's my mum, it's like a fantasy football league, but with horses (fun little contest). ms chavez (Broken) claimed to actually OWN her, but backtracked when asked abt it. it gave me a decent laugh tho.

Nice article about Fipke, his life, and some of his horses in the current edition of Trainer Magazine.

Seems a bit rude to photograph a lady on her "walk of shame", no? ;)

@Sparrow Castle - 30yo Secretariat mare Ball Chairman - Although Secretariat died too soon, quite a few of his kids and grandkids made it to advanced age. Kind of gives me a sense of comfort to know that, so thanks very much for posting her photo.

Depends on whether you want to call it a "walk of shame" or a "got laid parade" :D

Oh yes, Terlingua, who may be his most famous daughter, also lived a long life...to age 32. Barbara just posted a picture of her as a yearling that I don't remember seeing before. (She and Curtis' Border Run are full siblings. I wonder if Navajo Pass is still alive (she'd be 29); maybe Patricia McQueen will do a story on her.

Here's a super-cool historic pic by John C. Wyatt. TERLINGUA (Secretariat-Crimson Saint) as a @keenelandsales yearling, 1977. She sold for $275K. Her dam was a brilliant GSW and great producer, and Terlingua was a brilliant MGSW, best known as the dam of (drum roll) Storm Cat.
