THOROUGHBRED CLASSICS: THE ALABAMA STAKES w/BONUS FOOTAGE
Many consider the Alabama as the defining moment; to win this highly prestigious race is an impressive achievement to add to any
filly's resume' and most often is the deciding factor for year-end honors.
One of the stories showcased is that of the 1985 Alabama and Filly Triple Tiara Winner, MOM'S COMMAND - a look back at one of the most fascinating father/daughter relationships in racing history, that of Peter Fuller, his daughter Abbey and their horse.
The most interesting story concerning an Alabama winner was that of NORTHERN DANCER's daughter, FANFRELUCHE, the 1970 winner and Canadian Horse of the Year who mysteriously disappeared from Claiborne Farm while in foal to the great
SECRETARIAT - setting off a six-month FBI manhunt until her sudden re-appearance.
Other famous winners included BELDAME, TOP FLIGHT, BUSANDA, GAMELY and SHUVEE. This one's for you ladies!
AS AN ADDED BONUS...A very lengthy and detailed news segment on FANFRELUCHE's mysterious disappearance and even more mystifying REAPPEARANCE is also included at the very end of the main feature.
IN ADDITION TO THIS... HRTV reports the death of Peter Fuller on May 15, 2012, at age 89 and discusses some of the highlights of his career as a Thoroughbred owner and breeder (DANCER's IMAGE and of MOM'S COMMAND).
