    Nearco! I guess he did have a bomb shelter.

    I'm not as up on my pedigrees as I should be, but I believe he's considered one of the all-time great sires. His son, Nearctic, sired Northern Dancer. Another son, Nasrullah, sired Bold Ruler, who of course sired Secretariat.

    Anyway, cool pic! Thanks for sharing.

    Not just *a* horse. That's Nearco.
