Remember This Race?


Race Clue #1 - There were three former or future champions in the race, but none of them were involved in the win photo.

Race Clue #2- Three-quarters of the field came in off a victory, and three-quarters of the field went off at 7-1 or less.

Race Clue #3 - The winner of the race’s biggest previous victory had come in the Florida Derby.

Race Clue #4 - The race favorite was also favored in that year’s Kentucky Derby, but could only manage a 3rd and 4th in the two races.

Race Clue #5 - The site of this edition of the race was the host track only one time.

Race Clue #6 - Half the field was three-years-old, and the oldest horse in the race finished last.

Race Clue #7 - The winner’s trainer and jockey were best known for finishing second.

Race Clue #8 - The final time of two minutes and change made it a stakes record for just one year.

Race Clue #9- While the winner wore blinkers, he wore less headgear than the runner-up.

Race Clue #10 - The winning trainer of the 2013 Kentucky Derby was also the trainer of this race’s third choice, who finished seventh. 


You should know it by now … Tell me the race and the year!

all i got time to figure out was seeking the gold. man :/
Thanks, Chris, you too!
Thanks! Have a Happy Thanksgiving!
I knew that clue was telling ... blinkers, hood, shadow roll ... a Vegas showgirl indeed. Well done, Champ!
Brian, it was all about the headgear. Gate Dancer had more headgear on than a Vegas showgirl.
Sorry, Michael ... Chris was too fast. How did you nail this one down so quickly, Chris?

 ZATT's Star of the Week 


Meet Brian Zipse 

Brian has been a passionate fan of horse racing since birth. Taken to the races at a very young age, he has been lucky enough to see all the greats in person from Secretariat, Forego, and Ruffian through Rachel Alexandra, Zenyatta, and American Pharoah. 

Before coming to the Nation, Brian displayed his love for the sport through the development of his horse racing website, which quickly became one of the most popular blogs in the game. 
As Editor of Horse Racing Nation, Brian authors a daily column as Zipse at the Track, or ZATT for short, and adds his editorial flare to the overall content of the website. Brian also consults for leading contest site Derby Wars, and is a Vox Populi committee member. 
A horse owner and graduate of DePaul University, Brian lives just outside of Louisville with his wife Candice and daughter Kendra.
