This is very personal, but 51 years ago Native Diver ran his last race before succumbing to colic 9 days later. That race was the Del Mar Handicap--then run at 9F. He carried 130 pounds and won by over 4 lengths wire to wire in 1.46.4. At 8 years old. In July he won his third Hollywood Gold Cup, 10F in 1.58.4. He is now re-buried at Del Mar and shares space with Shared Belief, I was at Del Mar on Labor Day and went out to say "Hi" to both. Ran hard, sleep well.
I ran marathons. I saw the Taj Mahal by Moonlight. I drove Highway 1 in a convertible. I petted Zenyatta.
