Remember This Race?

Remember This Race?

 

Race Clue #1 - This edition of the grade 1 race included not only the defending Breeders’ Cup Classic winner, but also the next winner as well.

Race Clue #2 - The bettor’s top choice would win, but the second choice could manage no better than 6th.

Race Clue #3- Most of the field had a prep over the track, but the winner’s previous race came in New England.

Race Clue #4 - Things may look a little different these days, but this race is still an important part of the summer schedule.

Race Clue #5- He wasn’t one of the BC Classic winners, but the 5th place finisher did better than $5 million in earnings.

Race Clue #6 - The race winner also won his three remaining starts of the season.

Race Clue #7 - This was the second fastest edition of the race in the last quarter century.

Race Clue #8- Mike Smith and Gary Stevens both had a mount, but neither factored in the result.

Race Clue #9 - Two Triple Crown winners have won this race, including the most recent horse to sweep the Kentucky Derby, Preakness, and Belmont.

Race Clue #10 - Three in this field would also run in the Breeders’ Cup Classic a little later in the year.

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

Thanks, Brian! The New England clue was a giveaway, so I looked up Cigar's races and realized he beat Concern (the '94 Classic winner) in that Gold Cup.
Well done, congrats!

As Editor of Horse Racing Nation, Brian authors a daily column as Zipse at the Track, or ZATT for short, adds his editorial flare to the overall content of the website, and co-hosts the popular racing show, HorseCenter.
