My Horse Profile

Thoroughbred from Rockmart, GA

Seattle Slew

About Me

Active within 2186 Days

I am from Rockmart, GA and I've been a Club Horse member for 6 years, 2 months and 22 days

Nicknames: Taken to the Lexington auction conducted by Fasig-Tipton Company on July 19, 1975, Slew was sold for $17,500 to Karen and Mickey Taylor. The Taylors and Seattle Slew would form a history-making partnership. Shortly after his sale, Slew was sent to Andor Farm in Monkton, Maryland, where he was broken by Paula Turner and began his journey into becoming a racehorse.

Age: 40 years old

Gender: Stallion

Breed: Thoroughbred

Height: He was a wonderful horse... ........ ........ everybody loved him..... i'm facinated by all of these race horses but i hate the racing sport........ its cruel and filled with hatred

Color: Sired by Bold Reasoning out of the Poker mare My Charmer, Seattle Slew was a beautiful dark brown colt with a small white patch of hair by his left rear hoof.

Type of Riding: ENGLISH RACING DUH!!!!!! :-)

My Horse's Achievements: During his life, Seattle Slew rewrote the history books and became a thoroughbred-ra- cing icon. His legend will only continue to grow over time. By exploring this site, you'll learn more about Seattle Slew's racing career, his undefeated Triple Crown, and the continued effect he's had on the sport as a champion sire. Most importantly, you'll get the true account of his training, racing career, and life as a stallion. We strive to give you a "feel" for the unique being that Seattle Slew was, and hope that you will gain a better understanding of that "special something" that allowed Seattle Slew to touch so many lives.

My Horse's Favorite Treat: TO RACE!!!! FOREVER WITH MY JOCKEY SITTING ON MY BACK, ON MY NECK....... NO WHIPS OR SPURS, NO SADDLE BENEATH HIM... NO BIT IN MY MOUTH...... JUST TO RUN FOREVER AND ETERNITY DOING WHAT I DO BEST.... IN FRONT OF THE LORD WHEN I GO.......

My Horse's Favorite Things To Do: He loved to race!!!

Pet Peeves: He had that special something that no one can ever really truly describe. He had character and a pizzazz that enhanced the raw talent that he displayed as a runner. He simply was the most electrifying and magnetic horse the industry has ever witnessed.

My Horse's motto: "Almost there......12 lengths left.......... almost there.......8 lengths left........i'm ahead....... almost done........3 lengths....2 lengths....1 length left.... Yes!!! I'VE WON IT AGAIN!!!!"

How We Met

For over 28 years, Slew's accomplishments on and off the track, went unmatched by any other. During that time, we marveled in his rise to becoming the only undefeated Triple Crown winner, we cried during his times of stress, and we watched in amazement as he always came back stronger after times of adversity. We dedicate this site as a tribute to Slew, and all that he gave the sport and his fans. Rwad the motto..

Nice Profile
As the owner of an off the track horse I can appreciate what these guys and gals put up with. Beau's only sanity was to walk backwards when mounted no matter how brutely beaten. Then to resist anything that restricted his movement. It was not long with a gentle hand and patient heart that he became everything I knew he could be. Now 5 years later he is the envy of anything we do. Always willing to work his hardest to please me.Working with off the track horses is not for the inexperienced (without proper guidance), but it is very worth it.

Come visit me, Beau, Icicle, Bonnie, Savannah Star & Charlie.
