Depends on whether you want to call it a "walk of shame" or a "got laid parade" :D
...I felt like such a voyeur viewing those pics. :lol:

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.

Oh for the chance to go through Barbara Livingston's collection. What gems are there waiting to be rediscovered...or maybe discovered for the first time publicly.

Is anyone going to comment on how young that handler in the photo looks? :lol:

I hadn't noticed the handler until you mentioned it. I couldn't stop looking at Terlingua's QH-sized hindquarters. On a yearling. :shock:
She was a beautiful filly, and no surprise that she became a tremendous sprinter.

As soon as I saw the photo, I assumed she must have been a pretty docile filly, if a kid was allowed to parade her. :lol:

Thanks, Flanders. I didn't have time yesterday to look it up.

The young man holding Terlingua's shank has been identified as Olin Gentry. I just love old photos like this!

Off topic, but talk about a family legacy of selling nice horses.

Songbird confirmed in foal to Arrogate
Two-time Eclipse Award champion Songbird has been confirmed in foal to fellow champion and first-year stallion Arrogate. It would be the first foal for the Medaglia d'Oro mare.

The news was reported by Timber Town Farm, which boards Songbird in Lexington, Ky., for owner Mandy Pope, who purchased the mare for $9.5 million at last November's Fasig-Tipton Kentucky fall selected mixed sale. The price was the second-highest ever at a North American public auction for a broodmare prospect.

And we just saw that lovely photo of Hasili with her daughters, Banks Hill, Heat Haze and Intercontinental. My condolences to Juddmonte Farms and all her fans on this sad day.

Juddmonte announces death of magnificent broodmare Hasili
The 27-year-old was the dam of five Group 1 winners and top sire Dansili

Khalid Abdullah's Juddmonte breeding operation is mourning the death of its outstanding broodmare Hasili at the age of 27.

The daughter of Kahyasi, one of the most celebrated producers of the modern era, leaves an indelible mark on the breed as the dam of five individual Group or Grade 1 winners, a record she shares with New Zealand blue hen Eight Carat.

Hasili came agonisingly close to edging past Eight Carat's mark as her first foal, Dansili, was placed in five elite events including when finishing fast to be beaten just a neck into third behind War Chant in the Breeders' Cup Mile.

Dansili has more than made up for missing out on those laurels as a stallion at Juddmonte's Banstead Manor Stud, by supplying 20 Group or Grade 1 winners including the exceptional talents Flintshire, Harbinger, Rail Link and The Fugue.

Dansili's influence has deepened with sons Bated Breath and Zoffany having proved popular with breeders, and daughters having produced the likes of Astaire, Chicquita, Cliffs Of Moher, Expert Eye, Ice Breeze, Nezwaah and Time Test.

In a remarkable run, Hasili's five offspring after Dansili all struck at the highest level. Banks Hill in the Coronation Stakes, Breeders' Cup Filly & Mare Turf and Prix Jacques le Marois; Heat Haze in the BeverlyD and Matriarch Stakes; Intercontinental in the Matriarch and Breeders' Cup Filly & Mare Turf; Cacique in the Manhattan Handicap and Man o' War Stakes; and Champs Elysees in the Northern Dancer Turf Stakes, Hollywood Turf Cup and Canadian International.

Au revoir, Born Gold: the grande dame of the Wertheimer mare band
Outstanding dam of Goldikova and Galikova passes away aged 27
A week after the death of Juddmonte blue hen Hasili, European breeding has lost another grande dame with Pierre-Yves Bureau, the manager of the Wertheimer brothers' racing and breeding interests, announcing that Born Gold has passed away.

Born Gold, who was 27, produced the Wertheimers' history-making racemare Goldikova, Prix Vermeille heroine Galikova, the five-times Group/Grade 1-placed Anodin, three other stakes winners and a further two black-type place-getters.

The daughter of Blushing Groom achieved greatness and was certainly bred for it, as she hailed from a fruitful line of an outstanding Wertheimer family.

I imagine Hasili and Born Gold are standing together in the perfect grass of the Elysian Fields, looking at photos of their children and grandchildren and comparing their accomplishments. <3
