Hi - is there a link?  I would love to read it!  I am interested in Slew these days.

The OTTB I adopted in January is descended from Seattle Slew top and bottom.   Top through an A. P. Indy. mare bred to Storm Cat.  So that line goes back through Terlingua and Secretariat.   His sire is Bluegrass Cat who was 2nd in Barbaro's Derby.

And bottom  his second dam is from a Slew mare bred to Unbridled's Song.  He has Slew's coloring and his head is similar.

Oh I am loving this.  Honor Code was of course produced from a Storm Cat mare and my Martino's sire was by Storm Cat.   So many similarities.  It is fun reading this.  I am saving it - thank you!  Great article.

Here is my Marty....

It's interesting how there is little interest in the Triple Crown this year with some major factor horses skipping it like Maxfield and Honor AP. I wouldn't put NY Traffic in the "major factor" category, but he usually is in the thick of things and could be a late bloomer.
