In honor of the Kentucky Derby this weekend, I’m posting a picture I took almost 10 years ago. This is Danzig; grandsire of multiple Kentucky Derby winners. He liked mints and made this funny face after his groom fed him a peppermint. We were impressed by this gorgeous animal and the gracious people who gave us a tour of Claiborne Farm. Danzig died in 2006 as one of the most influential sires in American horse racing history.
