Name These Rivals!

Name These Rivals

 

Rival Clue #1 - Rivals of a different color, we were both born and bred in Kentucky.

Rival Clue #2- One rival was sired by a Preakness winner, while the other was sired by an Australian import.  

Rival Clue #3 - Our first meeting took place in a very fast 6 ½ furlong race at Belmont Park.

Rival Clue #4- Both rivals were stakes winners at two, and combined, accounted for eight stakes victories as juveniles.

Rival Clue #5 - Our closest finish came in by far our most famous race together.

Rival Clue #6 - Our respective records within the rivalry were 3-2-1-0 and 3-1-0-1.

Do you know who we are yet?  

Rival Clue #7 - Our final meeting resulted in the most lopsided margin, although the loser had an obvious excuse.

Rival Clue #8 - While we both ran at Churchill Downs and Pimlico, one of us ran at each track twice as much as the other.

Rival Clue #9 - Combined we won better than three-quarters of our lifetime starts.

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

Rival Clue #11 -  In our final respective career race, one of us bowed a tendon and was retired, while the other romped in his finale by nine lengths.

Rival Clue #12 - Both of us went on to stallion careers, one after his three-year-old year, the other, after his four-year-old season.

Go ahead … Name us both!
