    Putting him down wasn't the murder, breaking his leg so that he HAD to be put down was the murder.

    i blame the whole family for letting Lundy run Calumet Farm and their affairs ..there is a reason why the Martriach of that family distrusted Lundy and for 20 years gave him no access to the farm or its business ....

    Alydar was our filly's grandsire. He was GREAT! He also sired Easy Goer and Alysheba.

    Lundy was probably in a lot more trouble than is known even today.

    It just kills me, the things people will do for money. That horse and that farm were golden until the disease of Lundy spread throughout it's beautiful barns. Sickening. Somebody should have offed /Him/ instead.

    I do not believe the wound the Horse was found with, happened accidentally. He blew that money out his ass, like a total Moron. There a Lot of Creeps in the World.

    Whirlaway is my favorite horse and he came from Calumet Farm. Even though Alydar finished second to Affirm in all three TC races, I was rooting for him. Sad, indeed.

    I am continually amazed at the number of completely unworthy reprobates who end up eating the golden goose life hands some of them on a jewel encrusted platter.

    Four Years? After all that?... Well it was worth it to him, I am sure, living like an idiot King for most of his Life... Sheesh. And by now he is probably Free... I wonder if he is living under a Bridge somewhere in Florida... What a Jerk and Stupid man, who put a beautiful Farm under. And affected many people's lives in a negative way. He had his own little Mafia going... And he didn't care about Anything but Himself. A real big britches with other people's money...

    This whole horrific story always reminds me of that old story about Winston Churchill. He asked some high society woman at a party if she'd sleep with him for a million dollars. She said she most likely would. He then asked well how about 20 bucks. She asked What kind of woman do you think I am? He said Madam, we have already answered that question. We are now just quibbling over the price. Would most people deliberately smash the leg of a defenseless animal for $30. Most wouldn't, I'd guess. But what about $30,000,000?

    What a stupid family to let this conniving fortune-hunting practically-illiterate man take over the prestigious Farm of Racehorses. Did the Matriarch never have a serious Talk with them?! She should have found a good man to Manage, if none of her offspring were interested... Looking at him, and hearing his early actions and plans, he looks like a Mafia guy, to tell you the truth...and evidently had no scruples whatsoever... Not a word is mentioned about his wife, after he married her. I hear there is quite a bit of dishonest things that happen around Horse Racing... How terrible... The Sport of Thugs (not Kings).... Horses are such Beautiful creatures, with such Heart and wanting to please... Sad pairing. WIth people who only really care about gobs of money, the horse almost a "machine" to them... And why would a Farm making so much money, need to borrow Millions??? Because an Idiot was at the Helm.... Ruining something Grand. And if something is doing well for decades, Why do you "change" it???
