Name These Rivals!

Name These Rivals

 

Rival Clue #1 - We met seven times in a rivalry that spilled over into three different seasons.

Rival Clue #2 - One rival’s initial stakes attempt came in the Grade 1 Hopeful, while the other’s came in the Grade 1 Champagne.

Rival Clue #3 - Our first meeting came at the Breeders’ Cup, an event in which each of us participated multiple times.

Rival Clue #4 - Both rivals won exactly ten stakes races.

Rival Clue #5 - In our final meeting, we ran 1-2 at Saratoga, where the well beaten third place finisher now has a race named after him.

Rival Clue #6 - One rival was a Kentucky homebred of a historic farm, the other was also a homebred, but not of Kentucky, and was sold to foreign interests.

 Do you know who we are yet?  

Rival Clue #7 - It took the fifth try for the only rival to have won an Eclipse Award to come out on top in our contests against each other.

Rival Clue #8 - One of us raced at Atlantic City, while one of us raced in the Far East.

Rival Clue #9 - In all seven of our meetings, one of us won the race, with the other finishing second five times.

Rival Clue #10 - Both of our trainers were inducted into Racing’s Hall of Fame within ten years of our retirement from racing.

Rival Clue #11 - Each rival won more than 55% of our lifetime races, and combined we earned more than five million dollars.

Rival Clue #12 - We retired the same year, each having lost our final two races.

Go ahead … Name us both!

I must have had 20 invisible guesses last week.
Tonight is the night ... Will Michael Harris win another? Is it Andy Scoggin's turn? Can Ernie Munick finish a fast closing second? Is tonight the night Jennifer Pinkerton Cook finally breaks through? Is Chris Sorenson currently looking for Lost Code's top rival? And what about Mary Zinke?
Alydar & Affirmed?
Alysheba & Bet Twice?
Sunday Silence and Easy Goer??
Another great game. Beware the curveball clues! I can smell the misdirection coming!!

Well played, oh great champion ... thought that clue could be a biggie. The Name These Rivals! era has begun and was a big success ... See you next week, same ZATT time, same ZATT channel!
i think i'm a distant second choice in any field with the immortal andy scoggin
I think Michael was a 5-2 favorite to win the inaugural contest.
clue 5 was the key - it had to be the sultan of saratoga, fourstardave. he ran third to the two rivals iin the bernie baruch.
How did you nail this one down so fast, Michael?
i guessed ones that were too common. haha.
