Thunder Gulch 1995 Derby Winner

Passed away today. He was 26

A special horse, and special to me. He later went on to sire Hall Of Famer, and one of my absolute all time favorites, Point Given.

A horse this special deserves to be remembered and have his Derby shown.

Something I posted on another site

RIP beautiful one. And thank you.

I was new to racing and wasn't aware exactly who/ what D. Wayne and Gary really were. Had already got my tickets and had a few bucks left. Something I advise against now, but put a few bucks on him based on the color of the silks.

He really helped start my love of racing. You can tell by my name his greatest gift to me.

I tell people not as familiar with racing as us, it's hard to describe why certain ones grab you. I am thankful he did.

(My screen name there is PointGiven)
