We ended up bringing Cheyenne home last night after all. She hadn't had any turnout for a while so she was a little spunky. She loaded into the trailer without any trouble but got a little nervous once she was inside. I locked her in the shed for the night and let her in the pasture this morning. Dakota and Cherokee are locked in a small dry lot for now so Cheyenne has the pasture to herself. She whinnys every time she sees me and trots over to the fence. She loves attention! Dakota doesn't seem to mind her but Cherokee runs at her with his ears laid back every time she gets near the fence separating them. Hopefully he will settle down soon.

Todays blog is about Allez France.
Allez France was a French Thoroughbred Hall of Fame racehorse who was the first filly in Thoroughbred horse racing history to earn $1 million.
Purchased from her Kentucky breeder by French art dealer Daniel Wildenstein, she became his first important horse and the spur for his substantial investment in racehorses and bloodstock. For his horses in France, Wildenstein operated Dayton Investments Limited. For those in the United States, he owned the Allez France Stables.
During her racing career from age two to five, Allez France was the preeminent filly in France. In 1974, under new trainer Angel Penna, Sr., Allez France went undefeated and won the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe, France's most prestigious horse race. She was crowned French Horse of the Year. See http://ie.youtube.com/watch?v=Xl0Q-Kqa1Qk.
As a six-year-old, Allez France was sent to race in the United States but, as was the case in other races outside of France, she did not do well. In 1976, she was retired as a broodmare to Lane's End Farm in Versailles, Kentucky.
Allez France was the dam of the successful sire Air De France (1984–2004), who sired 11 stakeswinners that had 34 stakes wins. After her death, Allez France was honored by being buried next to Man O' War and other greats at the Kentucky Horse Park near Lexington, Kentucky.
