*NOTE: None of these photos are mine (unless otherwise stated), obviously, because most of these horses died way before I was born. I did, however, pay for the rare and vintage magazines and books that a lot of these photos come from
twostarsandstripes said: So that jockey fight happened last night and guess who won in an unanimous decision? ELVIS TRUJILLO. I'm so glad he won because I simply could not deal with Corey's bragging.
I think my appreciation for Elvis Trujillo just went through the roof. He knocked that cocky fucker to the ground!
I WANT VIDEO OF THAT INCIDENT
Anonymous said: Who was the first horse that descended from all eleven triple crown winners?
Oy this is gonna get complicated. I can say right out that there is no horse that can trace to all eleven of them, because Assault was like 90% sterile and left behind no Thoroughbred babies (although he did have a small handful of registered QH babies). So let’s try for the other ten, yes?
Let’s go ahead and look at Affirmed. He traced back to both War Admiral and Gallant Fox on his distaff side, so that’s three together. Seattle Slew had two War Admiral daughters in his pedigree and Secretariat didn’t trace back directly to any other TC winners. The others were too early and closely bunched together to really step into each others bloodlines (except, obviously, Gallant Fox and Omaha). Our best bet is to look for at Affirmed’s offspring
Affirmed sired 11 registered offspring from Seattle Slew mares. His daughter Divonia was out of the mare Elegant Lilly, whose pedigree contained Count Fleet. So that’s a horse with five of the possible 10 (Affirmed, Seattle Slew, War Admiral, Gallant Fox, and Count Fleet) and that’s probably the most your gonna get in one horse, unfortunately
Interestingly, there was a mare named Lulu Barton in the early 1950’s that was sired by Omaha and out of a Sir Barton mare, meaning that she had the first three Triple Crown winners immediately in her bloodline
So yeah, by my figuring (and I could, of course, be totally wrong) there were a few horses that had five TC winners in their pedigrees, but none with more.

EL-VIS! EL-VIS! EL-VIS! WOOOOOO
KICK HIS ASS WOOOOOOO!!!
