Brooklyn was a gentle giant that enjoyed stealing food from unsuspecting kids who wanted to pet him, according to an old newspaper clipping.

“Brooklyn Supreme may be 3,200 pounds of solid, magnificent horse flesh, sinew and brawn, but Brooklyn Supreme is a surprisingly gentle fellow whose greatest delight is stealing ice cream cones and goodies from unsuspecting little boys and girls.”

The article continues:

“Yes sir he just love sweets,” his exhibitor Ralph M Fogleman explains. “You watch and see what happens when that kid comes in with that candied apple on a stick. Sure enough, a youngster stood entranced below the towering head and shoulders above him. His candied apple was momentarily forgotten. Brooklyn Supreme calmly reached down, picked it out of his hand, and in a twinkling had separated sweet from stick and stood there smacking his lips.”

Brooklyn was foaled in 1928 and lived 20 years before passing away in 1948.

These are heartbreaking photos from San Luis Rey Downs Track. They had to release 500 horses because no trailers were allowed in before they ran out of time.  Trailers were eventually let in and all the surviving horses were transferred to Del Mar Fairgrounds.  You have probably read that over a dozen horses perished.
