Today I went with a group to Lexington and saw some horse farms instead of staying at Churchill Downs. Here is Thunder Gulch age 23, the 3rd oldest living Kentucky Derby winner behind Sea Hero and Go For Gin. He won the Kentucky Derby in 1995 and retired with earnings of almost $3 million and 9 wins in 16 lifetime races. He stood as a stallion at Ashford Stud where he lives now as a pensioner (i.e. retired) living a life of leisure. He still looks pretty good for an old guy! For those who don’t know, most thoroughbreds live about 25-30 years if there are no accidents or health issues.
