Name These Rivals

 

Rival Clue #1 - Our rivalry was short-lived, but packed plenty of punch within three memorable meetings.

Rival Clue #2 - Both champions, we were honored with year-end awards one year apart.

Rival Clue #3 - In our first meeting, we finished only a half-length apart at healthy odds of 8-1 and 14-1 respectively.

Rival Clue #4 - One rival began his career on the East Coast, earning his first three wins in Mid-Atlantic states.

Rival Clue #5 - The other rival’s career began in Louisville, but was not a winner until racing at Santa Anita for the first time.

Rival Clue #6 - While both of our conditioners still maintain prominent roles within the industry, only one is still a trainer.

Do you know who we are yet?  

Rival Clue #7 - In our final meeting, we finished 1st and 2nd at odds of 9-2 and 4-5 respectively.

Rival Clue #8 - Each rival raced at 11 different racetracks, but only one of them raced overseas.

Rival Clue #9 - What would a rivalry be without a little friendly bumping in the stretch?

Rival Clue #10 - Despite sharing a talented grandsire, one rival was bred in Kentucky, while the other was not bred in the United States.

Rival Clue #11 - Both rivals finished their career with a hard fought, but popular, victory in a grade 1 stakes race only five weeks apart.

Rival Clue #12 - Born the same year, both rivals retired at four, with a combined lifetime record of 37-15-10-7.

Go ahead … Name us both!

Not so wild ... I actually worried about that clue. Congratulations again, my friend!
Congrats on the speedy win.
Clue #6 made me think of Elliot Walden, so Victory Gallop. I still thought I was making a wild guess. I don't usually get them out of the blue like that.
very impressive
Nice!
? Wednesday winning and I forgot it's Wednesday? LOL
Was this one too easy? How did you get it so fast, Matt?
Go Matt!
That was quick! Yes, it is Victory Gallop and Real Quiet ... Well played, Matt!
