Zipse At The Track

Who Am I ???

Who Am I ???
*Bred in the great state of Kentucky, I was a grandson of one of racing's great sires.
 
*A May foal, I wasn't rushed to the races, but I won both of my two starts as a juvenile.
 
*My multiple stakes winning dam was also noteworthy, winning 16 of her 35 lifetime starts.
 
*I stretched my winning streak to four with a pair of stakes wins at a mile to begin my sophomore season.
 
*My first defeat came in a big one, but not for a lack of trying, as I came flying late.
 
*All of my career victories, and races for that matter, came on the same type of surface.
 
*The most important victory of my career came in a country where I only raced once.
 
*My longest winning streak only reached four, but I did it twice.
 
*I was the best horse ever for my English born trainer.
 
*My final career race came in a disappointing loss in the Breeders' Cup.
 
*I had some success as a sire, but passed away as a stallion in Japan before the chance at a long career.
