5/7/18 - Remembering Seattle Slew

Today, we spent time thinking of your triumph at Churchill Downs 41 years ago. We remembered how you intimidated your competition before the Kentucky Derby. We replayed the race in our minds, thinking of how you charged through the field, daring any others to challenge you, after the terrible start and how you unbelievably had the lead the first time under the wire. We remembered the feeling of watching you soar under the finish line first, all alone, unbeaten and unmatched, and how we celebrated in the winner's circle with you and your blanket of roses.

But, we also remembered that moment 16 years ago when you said goodbye to us. You were so strong from the moment we met you, through your triumphs and challenges on the track to your successes as a sire to how you fought back as age and spinal compression tried to take you away. Your power in overcoming surgery in 2000 to be healthy and full of life again outshines all your accomplishments before that. And you fought so hard to stay with us as time finally took its toll. And we once more saw how wonderful you truly were on this day.

You will always and forever be the most complete Thoroughbred: a champion on the track and a champion stallion. And you will always be the beloved Slew who lives forever in our hearts.

All our love,

The Slew Crew
