Tiznow

Tiznow at WinStar Farm

Last week I got to spend a couple of hours at WinStar Farm in Versailles KY (winners of this years Kentucky Derby and Belmont Stakes). I'll get some of the 'beautiful' pix posted a little later this week. But for now I want to post two of the more humorous photos.

This is the world famous Tiznow, Winner of 6.4 million, 2 time Breeder's Cup Classic Winner, Inductee to the Racing Hall of Fame and a Horse of the Year title. And.....resident GOOF BALL!

I'm pretty sure that these photos are never going to show up in a Stallion Catalogue. Tiznow commands a cover fee of $75,000. That's right.....Tiznow is NOT in a state of recession. Every mare this hunk of love meets means $75k is going in the checkbook at WinStar. Mare owners want to dream of the future "get" commanding big bucks in the sale ring or winning races...not doing improv in comedy clubs....or in the horse world.....pony clubs.

Tami Weingartner said...

I agree...this whole series of shots had me laughing...I loved them. And of course when he was making all these faces it just went on and on. Too funny to see this horse worth millions just 'horsin around'.

He is such a goof! He's probably fun to have around the barn. I can imagine all the stuff that he gets into.

Spruce Hill said...

Very cute photos--can't be all serious all of the time. I'll bet that was a lot of fun.

Cute pics! Nice to see a horse with a great personality. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I'm sorry about your broken ankle, but glad it's getting better. A friend of mine broke both bones in her leg skiing. Totally out of commission for 2 months, surgery to put a rod and screws in, physical therapy, etc. She's just now getting back to work and walking by herself. Yowzers!

Claudia's thoughts said...

Those wild horses on the Outer Banks are so free, and protected. Although they are no native their history goes back to the 1500.

You can not get within 50 feet of them or you will get a $500 fine. The fine is used to help with the care of the horses, vet care if they appear sick, but then they are adopted out if they have had contact with humans.

What happened to PA Wild Woman?

Tami Weingartner said...

Thanks folks...I'm so glad that everyone is enjoying these!!!!

Bush Babe.....I married a man who was great on a tractor....but that's just me!

Tami Weingartner said...
