Who Am I ???

Who Am I ???

 

*Bred in Kentucky, my breeders were a pair that had been through the Triple Crown wars with close-but-no-cigar results.

*My sire was a Breeders' Cup winner and my dam could really move it.

*A winner of 54% of my races, I only finished out of the money one time in my three-year racing career.

*3rd in my career debut, I did not lose again until the season finale of my three-year-old season.

*My first career race in New York resulted in a grade 1 win as the 2-1 favorite.

*More than half of my lifetime starts came at the same track, which is not in New York or California.

*My most important career victory came in the state of Kentucky.

*I was never voted a champion, but I was in the mix two years running.

*My two trainers both won the Kentucky Derby, and did it only two years apart.

*Other than my grade 1 wins, all of my victories either came at either 6 furlongs or 1 1/16 miles.

*My first foal to make it to the track is currently 0-for-2 in graded stakes.

Paseanda, Bayakoa, Hetherten, Zenyatta, Harve de Grace- what a line up ovewr the years....I had hope that the connections would send Rachel Alexndra but they knew she was cooked, undone and through.
It was the Azeri, Jennifer ... great race!
This has me reminiscing about the rivalry between Round Pond and Happy Ticket. I wish I had been a better fan when I watch them race at Oaklawn. I was still in the beginning stages of really paying attention. Their Appleblossom? was seared on them memory of even the lightest fan! Maybe it was the Azeri? Have to look up.
I knew it was a girl and that's about it. Went in the wrong direction. Congrats SusieRaisher !

Fresian Fire?
