First Openly Gay Racehorse to Compete!


In real life, rumors circulated for years that 2002 Kentucky Derby and Preakness winner War Emblem was a gay horse because of a seeming disinterest in mares. In recent years, however, War Emblem has been siring foals, including one recent classic winner.

  1. And you know boyfriend was hung...BIG TIME! But, of course, for the umphteenth time--I am NOT a size queen.

    I wonder if War Emblem was bigger than Silver (you know, the Lone Ranger's horse)...never mind, I take that back. There shall be no comments with racial connotations until after November 4th.

  3. What amuses me is that all animals are bisexual. Even us. We just have our degrees of preference. ;)

  4. The picture of "Noreaster" is actually Man O' War. :) And I still think War Emblem is very possibly gay, that their putting him to service mares in numbers is probably not natural for him, but the fact he IS getting foals, siring winners and producing classic runners does not negate him from being gay (gay dads anyone?) so your wording is a little misleading. Still, this is a nice funny video. Gay animals rule.
