Who Am I ???

Who Am I ??? 615 X 400


*My sire was a champion in more than one country, my half-brother was a champion in one.

 

*Bred in Kentucky, all of my racing as a juvenile came outside the United States.


*My first start in the States saw me win going away at Santa Anita.


*I did not run on the first Saturday in May, but I still managed to make plenty of noise at three.

 

*My initial stakes victory came at Keeneland, where I won by open lengths.

 

*A racing millionaire, my six career victories came at six different racetracks.

 

*I never had a winning streak of more than two, but I did win back-to-back Grade 1 races.

 

*Despite half of my career victories coming around only one turn, I was best remembered for a win going a distance.

 

*I once finished third behind two entry-mates, as part of a four-horse entry in a stakes race.


*All of my stakes wins came at the age of three, and I competed in the Breeders' Cup Classic twice, but found no success.

 

*Today, I spend my time frolicking in Kentucky's blue grass.


You should know by now … Who Am I ???

Meet Brian Zipse 


Brian has been a passionate fan of horse racing his entire life. Taken to the races at a very young age, he has been lucky enough to see all the greats in person from Secretariat, Forego, and Ruffian through Rachel Alexandra, Zenyatta, and American Pharoah. 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. A big supporter of thoroughbred aftercare, he serves on the Board of Directors of The Exceller Fund. Brian also consults for leading contest site Derby Wars, and is a Vox Populi committee member. 
  
A horse owner and graduate of DePaul University, Brian lives just outside of Louisville with his wife Candice and daughter Kendra.
