Name These Rivals

 

Rival Clue #1 - Our rivalry stretched over two years from Maryland to Florida, with New York hosting our most well remembered meeting.

Rival Clue #2 - Both rivals were multiple stakes winners in more than one year.

Rival Clue #3 - Although sired by different stallions, our sires shared shared the first two letters and the last four letters of each’s one word name.

Rival Clue #4 - One rival cleaned up in South Florida and Chicago, while the other was New York through and through.

Rival Clue #5 - Each rival lost a leg of the Triple Crown as a race favorite.

Rival Clue #6 - While both of our trainers ended up in the Hall of Fame, they were more than 50 years apart in age.

Do you know who we are yet?  

Rival Clue #7 - From a talented crop, there were three different winners of the Triple Crown series when we were three.

Rival Clue #8 - Besides each other, one horse we each raced against is considered one of the best of all-time.

Rival Clue #9 - One rival was a three-year-old champion, while the other was unbeaten as a juvenile, and brother to a future Horse of the Year.

Rival Clue #10 - In our final meeting, the loser of our most famous meeting came out on top.

Rival Clue #11 - Both rivals finished their career at the age of four and were sent off for a career at stud.

Rival Clue #12 - Born the same year, both rivals won more than half of their races, and combined to finish first or second in 35 of 42 lifetime races.

Go ahead … Name us both!

That's right ... Come back next week to defend your championship!
I actually won a few weeks ago. This was the first time since that I was able to play.
I had been reading something about Moccasin awhile back and that's where I remembered Nantallah/Nasrullah. I also remembered they both raced against Kelso. If you were looking for something early in the early sixties he was usually the common denominator.
Full brother ... well done, Chris. first time winner?
I didn't read down far enough the first time to see half brother to a horse of the year. 2nd guess was the charm.
Oh snap!
How did you get this one so fast, Chris?
Silver Charm/ Free House
