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.

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.
