Kentucky Derby Horse Is Not A Stud

Former Kentucky Derby winner War Emblem is our kind of guy. Unlike most thoroughbred studs, who mate with any mare that gallops their way, War Emblem is incredibly choosy about who he beds. His owners bought him for $17 shortly after he won the 2002 Derby, and they have been trying to bring out his sexual side, to no avail. “You name it we’ve tried it,” said Nobuo Tsunoda, director of the Shadai Stallion Station. “We had him on Viagra — that didn’t work. I even went into (Sapporo’s) red light district with 300,000 yen in cash and brought back a lot of ‘special’ medicine to try and perk him up. It’s very odd. He’s not impotent. He’s just very choosy about his women. He’s more human than animal. Basically he’s a bit of a weirdo.” War Emblem is not a weirdo, he’s just sensitive. [Reuters]
