 I feel very sad about his passing: I was just coming here to post this.  He was a wonderful man, an owner that truly loved and did right by his horses. I will always believe that he saved the life of Songbird by recognizing she had a serious problem.  Condolences to his friends and family.  I believe his love for horses extended his life as he fought through battling cancer for several years.

 This tribute to Mr. Porter from Bill Finley is exceptional in that it is much more personal than the other tributes and articles I have read.  Rick Porter said that Songbird was his favorite filly.

This was excellent thank you for posting.

I had the pleasure of spending a day at Pimlico Racetrack with Victoria Keith watching the Preakness, this was the year that Looking At Lucky won.

It was awesome, I have been to the Preakness 3 times (including the year American Pharoah won)

 That is so awesome:  I went to the Preakness in 2008 and saw Big Brown win: that was just a great day!!!! the tickets were so reasonable- we sat at an area at the clubhouse turn!!!!
