A public memorial service honoring the deceased Triple Crown winner Seattle Slew has been scheduled for 8:00 p.m. July 19 at Hill 'n' Dale Farm near Lexington, Ky.
Slew, the last surviving Triple Crown winner and the sire of more than 100 stakes winners, died Tuesday at Hill 'n' Dale. The 28-year-old stallion had been relocated to Hill 'n' Dale earlier this year from Three Chimneys Farm, where he stood most of his stud career after initially entering stud at Spendthrift Farm.
According to the Louisville Courier-Journal, the Slew's gravesite in a courtyard at the farm will be open to visitors after it is memorialized. A statue will mark the grave.
