|A special research fund in Slew's name has been established at the College of Veterinary Medicine, Washington State University, Pullman, Washington. When the fund matures it will support continued research into the diagnosis and treatment of equine spinal cord disease. Washington State University is where the surgical technique for treatment of compression of the spinal cord was developed. Washington State University is also the alma mater of 4 members of Seattle Slew's surgical team. Funds donated by the Taylors in 1977 after his Triple Crown helped support this research. Years later the results of this research were to benefit Seattle Slew when he required surgery for the treatment of his own spinal cord compression.
