Name These Rivals!

Name These Rivals


Rival Clue #1 - Neither of us were bred in Kentucky, as a matter of fact; only one of us was bred in the United States.

Rival Clue #2- Both rivals have stakes races named after them, but on opposite coasts.

Rival Clue #3- Our first meeting took placing at Belmont going 12 furlongs; one rival did well, the other did not.

Rival Clue #4 - One rival was a champion more than once, the other rival only became a champion after the retirement of the first.

Rival Clue #5 - Both rivals lost their career debuts in races shorter than six furlongs, but combined, were victorious in more than 40 races.

Rival Clue #6 - Our closest finish came in our final meeting when we were only separated by a neck after 1 ½ miles.

Do you know who we are yet?  

Rival Clue #7 - Our rivalry spanned only three races, but it lasted two seasons, from October to June.

Rival Clue #8 - Both of our primary trainers have since passed, but not before induction into the Hall of Fame.

Rival Clue #9 - Our racing careers spanned one of the eras in racing recognized as a golden age.

Rival Clue #10 - Our respective records in the rivalry were 3-2-0-0 and 3-1-1-0, but would have been better if not for a disqualification.

Rival Clue #11 -  Both rivals now have their place in the National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame.

Rival Clue #12 - Born two years apart, our racing careers also ended two years apart.

Go ahead … Name us both!

Congrats Chris ;)
Four or five in a row. I had a couple before the streak stated, but missed a few weeks here and there. I set a reminder on my phone now.
Since Victory Gallop, Real Quiet??????
How many in a row is that for you, champ?
Name These Rivals -- Chris Miskell and AndyScoggin --LOL, except it's very lopsided.
Golden Age meant the '70s were in play. The multiple champioships narrowed it down since I knew it wasn't a Triple Crown winner. Then I ran through who had races named and came up with those two.
That was not easy. Well done, Chris!
I spent too much time thinking about the Belmont Stakes!
Congrats Chris, I'm nipping at your heels. I posted and I refreshed and saw you had already gotten it.
Andy, I think I must type faster than you..
