“Cielo azzurro, mare azzurro, isole azzurre, maioliche azzurre, piante verdi, rose ai piedi della principessa, orma di danzatrice“. (Gio Ponti) http://www.archidiap.com/opera/hotel-parco-dei-principi-di-sorrento/
Alydar (1975 to 1990) was an American Thoroughbred race horse who was most famous for finishing a close second to Affirmed in all three races of the Triple Crown, a feat not achieved before or repeated since. Although overshadowed in some ways by Affirmed in his racing career, Alydar was very prolific as a stallion. His offspring include Alysheba, Turkoman, Strike the Gold, and Criminal Type. He is also the broodmare sire of Cat Thief, Anees, Ajina, Gio Ponti, and Lure.
