Afleet Alex
Born May of 2002 and Owned by Cash is King stable. He won the Preakness after going down on his knees, and also the Belmont. He's out of Northern Afleet on his sire's side. He was named Afleet after his sire, and Alex after several of his owners kids. There was also a Lemonade stand called Alex's Lemonade stand where a precentage of his earnings went to Alex's lemonade stand to help fight childhood cancer.

Wimpy P-1
Was the first registered Quarter Horse. Foaled on the King Ranch in Texas in
March of 1937 out of Solis. He was out of one of the founding lines of the AQHA. He made the AQHA hall of fame in 1989 and there is a bronze statue of him outside AQHA's headquarters in Texas. He was the first Stallion in the AQHA stud book.

For me its gotta be either Buchpales (Cant Spell it Alexanders war horse)Furioso II, Furioso, Royal Kaliber and my friends dressage and showjumping CHESTNUT Friesian La De Ver (AKA Eros) he's quite a stud round by me. He's sire 18 males (Noteables: Diesel 1-10, Bakfyr, Subaru vs) and 13 females (Noteables: One Shot, Vodka, Payment), 31 in all! My favourite one from him I Diesel 1-10 though. Out of the 10 Friesians Eros has bred with he's the only foal to be a chestnut!

OK I now this is an old thread but I like

Dash for Cash:

History: His sire is, Rocket Wrangler (TB/QH), his dam, Find a Buyer (TB)
Here is what is owner said when he was first born:

"There was no question," said Phillips. "When this colt hit the ground, he was so perfectly conformed. Most colts, when they are born, are skinny and gangling and so forth. This colt was, too, of course, but he just had everything conformed right. I felt then that he was going to be a great horse. I went back to the house and told my wife that the best horse ever born on the place had just hit the ground. There was no mistaking him."

And that he was.

A very good picture with his owner.

Also I like:

Lost Soldier:

OH! I just found out he died September 7, my I just talked to the lady that owned him not to long before that. This horse is my horses Grand Sire.

History: His Sire is, Danzing, and his Dam is, Lady Winborne,

Lost Soldier, sire of 2005 sprint champion Lost in the Fog, died Tuesday at Buck Pond Farm in Versailles, Ky., apparently of a heart attack.
A Danzig horse, Lost Soldier was 20 and was advertised this season with a $5,000 stud fee.

“It looks like he went down for a nap and simply didn’t get back up,” said Doug Arnold, who owns Buck Pond and also owned Lost Soldier. “He didn’t have a mark on him. There were no signs of any struggle.”

A son of Lady Winborne, Lost Soldier was a half-brother to Grade 1 winner and producer La Gueriere, dam of Icon Project ad Lasting Approval, and to Grade 1 winner Al Mamoon, among to

I feel so sad. I really liked that horse. Well at least I have my horse to remind me of him.

My favorite picture of him:

Here's him running:

Secretariat. My uncle has a bunch of famous(?) fancy painting/prints of Secretariat I believe that he is trying to sell, if you happen to be looking for a big fancy painting of the horse (His dad would save up and buy them). My grandmother was just complaining to me about them, because she has nowhere to keep them and my uncle won't find people to sell them to :p
