Glad to see the old boy is still around....I was a big fan of him during his racing days. Winner of the first Derby at Remington Park and second to Easy Goer in the Travers.

Just read that NYRA has extended an invite to Akindale Farm to bring Evening Attire back for a visit during the meet.

Time Passages: Champion, Dual Classic Winner Hansel Enjoying Life At Lazy Lane Farm
When you drive up to Hansel's private pasture here at Lazy Lane Farm, you can see his proud head over the rise of a lush green hill. His ears are pricked as he trots toward the black board fence and the people awaiting him.

At 28, Hansel looks fabulous.

Twenty-five years ago, when Hansel won the 1991 Preakness Stakes (G1), he was a vibrant, fearsome 3-year-old. He stood 16-hands, approximately 5-foot-4, to the top of his withers. Horsemen and race fans couldn't keep their eyes off his well-defined frame.

Today, not much has changed. The bay stallion, who lives about 120 miles from Pimlico Race Course, is still solid, bold and beautiful.

Hansel, oldest living Preakness winner, still as beautiful and spirited as ever - See more at: http://www.twinspires.com/blog/2016/5/1 ... J3ypx.dpuf

Don't think this Paulick Report list has been shown before. Interesting to see what last years runners are doing now.

On a Ride On Curlin side note, he had a slight injury so he was on stall rest at Churchill Downs after his last race at Keeneland. They were walking him daily, but the farm will be so much better for him--mentally, too!

During Derby week, we talked to his exercise rider a bit. She said that some (brave? stupid? drunk?) woman sneaked into Ride On Curlin's stall, took off all her clothes, and got her picture taken with him completely nude. She's lucky that she left with all her body parts intact :lol:

This is where he is retiring to, with Csaba, Treasure Beach, etc. Beautiful place! http://www.pleasantacresstallions.com/

A day in the life: Better Talk Now
When Breeders’ Cup champion Better Talk Now ended his racing career at age 10 in 2009, owner Brent Johnson never wavered on how the earner of $4,356,664 would spend his retirement. “Blackie” was, is and always will be a Fair Hill horse.

That decision certainly set well with everyone here at Herringswell. After seven seasons on the racetrack – which took him all over North America as well as Japan and Dubai – none of us could imagine daily life in the barn without him.

Now 17, Blackie’s best mate is Graham’s first stakes winner, 28-year-old Gala Spinaway. The two geldings spend their days in a large paddock built specifically for them at our Parlo IV barn. At night they’re brought in to stalls bedded knee-deep in straw. It’s a sweet routine for a couple of old guys.
