This horse was the only one that had his own bomb shelter during the second world war!
Whenever horsemen from all over the world went to England they made a point of going to see this great horse.

Name the horse!

So we should stop posting trivia questions because they are not trivia anymore!

On the other hand the rest of us are learning something!!

IDK. I'm good at answering...horrible at making questions that aren't super-detailed pedigree research things (we did that one summer when I was on the MSNBC horse racing forum)....so, I bow to you for the next question (if there is one!)

That was a good question, Raven. Found a site that described the shelter to some degree; picture is available ... #60.

http://blogs.denverpost.com/captured/20 ... -war/2542/ #60 Nearco

>Nearco, the highest priced racehorse ever sold [at that time], has a bomb-proof shelter at this town near Newmarket, Cheveley, England on April 16, 1944. The shelter has air conditioning, electric lighting, and is roofed with 4 ft. of reinforced concrete surmounted by several feet of earth. Here, Nearco is shown being led out of his shelter.

I've found my questions to be to in depth. But here goes, I hope I don't give too much away:

This multi-champion filly was as blue blooded as could be. However, her owner decided to keep her at his farm in New Jersey, where she was bred to obscure local stallions for 3 of her 4 foals, her last actually being by a Kentucky stallion.
