ill.have.another Ruffian is also known as the #queenofracing!! She won #1974outstanding2yearoldfilly after setting a record in her maiden race and winning by 15 lengths and being undefeated in her first 10 races. She also set stakes records in all 8 of her stakes races she raced in. Her average win 8 1/3. Jacinto Vasquez was her jockey. She won the #tripletiara in 1975 which is a #triplecrown for fillies. All of her records remain unbroken except the Mother Goose with a time of 1:47.80 and by 13 1/2 lengths which was not beaten till Rachel Alexandra in 2009. She ran in a match race against the 1975 #kentuckyderby winner #foolishpleasure. #jacintovasquez was jockey for both but chose #Ruffian who he thought was the better horse. She hit her shoulder coming out of the starting gate but was still winning until the sesamoid bones in her right foreleg snapped. She wouldn't pull up and kept running till the skin and bones were shredded. She was taken straight to a veterinarian and her leg was fixed in a 3 hour emergency operation. When she woke up she thrashed around her stall and re broke her leg and was then humanely euthanized. Her body was buried on the homestretch at Belmont, her nose pointed to the finish line. -------------------------------------------------

officialaqha Here's a little #AQHAhistory lesson for you: MADDON'S BRIGHT EYES

She stood 15 hands, weighed about 1,120 pounds, had a blazed face and one blue eye, and loved to suck eggs dry, without even destroying the shells. Her name was Maddon’s Bright Eyes, and she was loved by her owner, named C.L. “Tess” Maddon of Albuquerque, New Mexico.

Even before she became the first horse to sprint the quarter-mile in less than 22 seconds, Melville Haskell wrote in 1950 that the mare was “in a class by herself at the top of the list, and obviously the horse to beat in any race she entered.” The mare earned $16,577 during her racing career, setting eight track records and equaling three, snagging the world champion title in 1949 and again in 1951. In her first start, a trial for the New Mexico State Fair Futurity in 1948, Maddon’s Bright Eyes caught the attention of sportswriter Leslie Ernenwein who wrote, “I suppose there have been other 2-year-old fillies making their first start who were as pretty, but she’s the one I’ve never forgotten.” Bred by J. Warren Shoemaker and foaled May 12, 1946, Maddon’s Bright Eyes was by Gold Mount, a palomino stallion who traced on the topside to Whisk Broom II and on the bottom to Old Fred and King Plaudit, a son of the winner of the 1898 Kentucky Derby. King Plaudit was also the sire of Maddon’s Bright Eyes’ dam, an apron-faced mare named Plaudette.

Maddon’s Bright Eyes produced four foals, Bright Bar by Three Bars (TB), Bright Red by Leo, Me Bright by Leo and Lady Bright Eyes by Leo. Of these, there were three starters, three winners, two stakes winners and two Register of Merit winners. They earned a combined total of $11,760.

Maddon’s Bright Eyes was euthanized in 1958 due to complications from an old racing injury. She was inducted into the American Quarter Horse Hall of Fame in 1997. #AQHAhalloffame #AmericanQuarterHorse #racehorse

ウインフルブルーム様とはほんのちょっとの差で入れ違いになってしまい(。>д<)…(因みに北海道に放牧に出されたそうです。)ましたが、凄い仔たちに触れあわせてもらってきました!
この仔はキャップと何度か追いきりをしたマイネルネッツくん。

The beautiful and talented French filly by Barathea, and out of Vermentina.
Verema won four times in thirteen starts, three being major, the Prix de Lutece, Prix Maurice de Nieuil and Prix Kergorlay. She was second in the Prix De Barbeville, and third in the Dubai Gold Cup, behind Cavalryman.
The mare was a strong competitor in the 2013 Melbourne Cup, and did run in it. But Verema didn't make it out of the Melbourne Cup, as the mare tragically broke down. It was quickly realized hat she was suffering a break on her near-foreleg cannon bone, the injury so catastrophic that veterinary opinion determined she be humanely euthanized immediately rather than suffer unncecissarily.
I never properly wished Verema a goodbye, but it really is better late than never so I hope you are Resting In Peace beautiful girl ️
