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. Charging down the stretch, you took command impressively and kicked clear of the rest of the field to show the world what we already knew. Sailing under the wire nearly two lengths in front, you claimed the Kentucky Derby. Within five weeks, you would become the first undefeated Triple Crown winner. And the world would never be the same.

Twenty-five years after your tremendous Kentucky Derby, after leaving your mark on the track and in the breeding shed. After fighting so hard to overcome challenges late in your life, you told us it was time and said goodbye. Our world has not been the same since that day.

We love you, Slew. Our champion, no one will ever measure up to you.

All our love,

Karen and Mickey
