Hi Horse Pals,
Happy Valentine's Day!! In honor of the day of 'love', I have chosen a breed my sister and I love, the Thoroughbred! Quite apart from being the world's supreme racehorse, the Thoroughbred has played a vital part in the upgrading of numerous old horse and pony breeds and in establishing as many new ones.
(This color above is a rare one in the Thoroughbreds)
Fact #5: There are many famous Thoroughbreds and here are just a few racehorses: Secretariat ~ in 1973, the first horse to win the Triple Crown since Citation in 1948, won 16 of 21 starts, fourth all-time money winner. Tied or broke 5 track records. Secretariat sold for an all-time high of $6,080,000.
Native Dancer ~ this silver gray horse won 21 of 22 races in his career. Owned by Alfred G. Vanderbilt, best two-year-old of 1952 and champion three-year-old in 1953, retired in 1954. Sired Raise A Native, Majestic Prince and Kauai King.
I hope you love the Thoroughbred as much as I do! To give you all a bit more time to guess, I will start featuring a new breed every other week. Here is a clue for the next horse or pony breed:) This breed is known for its stamina and endurance. Good luck!
Your Horse Pal,
