Who Am I ???

Who Am I ???


*Foaled in Kentucky, my sire was a winner of one of Europe's most prestigious races.

*My career began in New York with a romping win in a 5 ½ furlong maiden special weight.

*The winner of my only defeat as a juvenile was a good one; she is a member of the Hall of Fame.

*I came after many of my famous trainer's best horses, but I was not his last major winner.

*My owner also won many important races, including seven legs of the Triple Crown.

*I collected 13 stakes wins at five different tracks over my two-year racing career.

*My sophomore season began with a dead heat for first in an important stakes race.

*I was undefeated at twelve furlongs and beyond, winning each time easily.

*My career was so outstanding they named a race after me in New York.

*Talk about going out on top … I ended my career on a ten race winning streak .

*Unfortunately, I never had the opportunity to race as an older horse.

You should know by now … Who Am I ???
