Stymie, Pleasantly Perfect, Johar, Richard Mandella - October 25th

Pimlico, the nation's second-oldest Thoroughbred racetrack, began its inaugural meet. ~1870
 
After winning the Gallant Fox Handicap at Jamaica, a former $1,500 claimer, Stymie, became the world's leading money winning Thoroughbred, with earnings of $816,060. Stymie raced two additional years and retired in 1949, at age eight, with lifetime winnings of $918,485. ~1947
 
Trainer Richard Mandella set a single-day record winning four Breeders' Cup World Thoroughbred Championships races at Santa Anita. Mandella saddled Halfbridled to victory in the Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies; Action This Day in the Bessemer Trust Breeders' Cup Juvenile; Johar to a dead-heat win in the John Deere Breeders' Cup Turf; and Pleasantly Perfect in the $4 million Breeders' Cup Classic, Powered by Dodge. The Johar dead heat with High Chaparral in the Turf marked the first dead heat in Breeders' Cup history. And in guiding Halfbridled to victory, jockey Julie Krone became the first woman to ride the winner of a Breeders' Cup flat race. ~2003
