Who Am I ???

Who Am I ??? 615 X 400

 

*Bred in Kentucky, I was a descendant of the great Bold Ruler.


*My sire made a name for himself on the first Saturday in May.


*I became a grade one winner in the Midwest at the distance of 6 ½ furlongs.


*I was a multiple stakes winner in each of the following states: Florida, Illinois, and Kentucky.


*The majority of my stakes wins came as a juvenile, although I was still winning them at four.


*I finished first or second in 83% of my races over my three-year racing career.


*I ran well in each leg of the Triple Crown without winning or being favored in any.


*Unfortunately, my career was cut short by injury after a pair of stakes wins in Florida.


*I came two years after an American Classic winner for the same sire, breeder, owner, and trainer.


*Known for finishing 2nd, I retired with just as many wins, despite being DQ’d in what would have been my biggest victory.


*As a stallion, I was unable to pass on my talent and success, although I did sire a champion in Venezuela.


You should know by now … Who Am I ???

I'm trying to figure out if "my sire made a name for himself on the first Saturday in May" just means the sire won the Kentucky Derby or if it means that he wasn't really well known until he did.

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 and Ruffian through Rachel Alexandra and Zenyatta. 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 Managing 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 serves on the the Board of Directors of ReRun Thoroughbred Adoption and is a Vox Populi committee member. 
  
A graduate of DePaul University, Brian lives in Suburban Chicago with his wife Candice and daughter Kendra, where he is a professional golf instructor when he is not following the horses.
