Polish Navy

The Old Friends blog today reported the passing of a grand old race horse and sire, Polish Navy.

Here are some photos of Polish Navy as a young horse that were taken by my friend and I on a idyllic visit to Kentucky one fall weekend in the late 1980s.

At that time, Polish Navy was at Claiborne Farm, recently retired to stud and was being "let down" to begin his new duties in the early spring.

I don't know exactly why, but he always held a certain appeal and my friend and I had followed his racing career with great interest.
