Hill 'N' Dale Farm is the final resting place for 1977 Triple Crown winner and legendary sire Seattle Slew. One of only eleven horses to accomplish the feat, he is also the only horse to sweep the Triple Crown undefeated. As a yearling, he sold for just $17,500 but went on to make history for owners Karen and Mickey Taylor, trainer Billy Turner, and jockey Jean Cruguet. He retired with 14 wins in 17 starts and earnings of $1.2 million. Among his many stakes-winning offspring, he sired A.P. Indy, Capote, Landaluce, Slew O'Gold, Surfside, Swale, and Vindication. He died on May 7, 2002, exactly 25 years after his Derby win. To the right is a view of the lovely stallion barn courtyard which is behind the grave.
