5/7/21 - Celebrating Slew

Another year has passed since you stepped on to the track at Churchill Downs, fought your way to the front so you had the lead the first time under the wire and then sailed across the finish line of the Kentucky Derby alone and unbeaten.

5/7/20 - Celebrating with Memories

Slew, on this day 43 years ago, you did something most people considered impossible. And on this day, 18 years ago we survived the impossible when you said goodbye.

In 1977, we never had any doubt in you. The Slew Crew believed in you. You had never been defeated and at Churchill Downs, on the first Saturday in May, you wouldn't be denied. A bad start was nothing to you. You fought your way to the front of the field and were in the lead the first time under the line. Then you waited for your time.
