You overcame every obstacle thrown at you. The Derby eve alfalfa scare, the cymbals as you passed in front, the paddock and the gate. You fought your way to the front and stared down For The Moment and Angel Cordero. You gave them your eye and they feared you.

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.
