I have been to Kentucky several times, but today was the first time I got to visit the Horse Park.
It is an impressive farm dedicated to all aspects of horsemanship.
For me, seeing some retired famous race horses was a highlight.Funny Cide is only 10 years old but won some legendary races when he was a young gelding.He had very good manners.
Cigar, on the other hand, at 21 was still giving his groom fits with his nipping.Perhaps he can be forgiven his attitude when you find out that he won 16 races in a row and although he was unable to produce any foals, he is still intact.My absolute favorite part of the park was the grave of Man O' War.The greatest race horse. Ever.
