Name These Rivals!

Name These Rivals

 

Rival Clue #1 - Both rivals were bred in the same American state, and it was not Kentucky.

Rival Clue #2- Each rival broke their maidens as juveniles, but did not become stakes winners until the age of three.  

Rival Clue #3- Our first matchup came at Gulfstream Park, and it marked our only meeting where we finished 1-2.

Rival Clue #4 - Each rival earned their initial grade 1 stakes victory at Santa Anita.

Rival Clue #5 - Only one rival ran in the Kentucky Derby, and had a good, but not winning, result.

Rival Clue #6 - Our respective records within the rivalry were 4-1-1-1 and 4-1-1-0.

Do you know who we are yet?  

Rival Clue #7 - We both competed in the Breeders’ Cup just once, faced each other, and finished 2nd and 4th respectively.

Rival Clue #8 - Each rival earned their first graded stakes win at Fair Grounds, while on the Kentucky Derby trail, but in different years.

Rival Clue #9 - Combined we earned more than four million on the track, and won stakes races in every season after our juvenile years.

Rival Clue #10 - The rival who finished ahead of the other in three of four, was also the one that competed in each leg of the Triple Crown.

Rival Clue #11 -  In each rival’s last race, we won a grade 1 stakes race by open lengths.

Rival Clue #12 - Both well traveled, one rival ran at 13 different racetracks, while the other competed at ten.

Go ahead … Name us both!
