2/15/22 - Happy Birthday to Our Brilliant Slew

Forty-eight years have now passed since you took your first breaths and steps at White Horse Acres.

Seattle Slew, you won the Triple Crown having never experienced defeat. You were and remain the most complete Thoroughbred: a champion on the track every year and a champion sire. You sired such outstanding runners who continue to pass on your talent with each new generation.

Slew, you defined greatness. And you changed our lives and the lives of so many others.

Happy Birthday, Slew.

All our love,

Karen & Mickey and the Slew Crew

The following message accompanied Slew's birthday roses that were sent to him this morning.

Happy Birthday, Slew.

You were foaled 48 years ago.

We met in your yearling year. Mickey dog eared the Fasig-Tipton catalogue — Hip 128, Bold Reasoning–My Charmer — because of all the two-year-old winners in your pedigree. We were looking for quick two-year-olds. You certainly were that.

You had so much speed, we had to finesse that speed. We were fortunate to have Mike Kennedy on your back who did that so well. You were quite a team.

You had a rare spirit and a great eye. You did you war dance even as you came out of your stall at Fasig-Tipton. I elbowed Mickey. I signed for you. I named you.

Mickey always tried to do what was in your best interests. You always came first and you were always in our thoughts.

You did everything ever asked of you. You did everything your way.

We were so privileged to be a part of your life and we loved you with all our hearts.

That was a special day, February 15, 1974.

You are in our hearts and prayers. You are the greatest.

God Bless You, Seattle Slew.
