Remember This Race?

 

Race Clue #1 - A traditional prep for the Kentucky Derby, this edition featured ten betting interests.

Race Clue #2 - The two betting favorites finished 4th and 5th, leaving it to the next three choices to run 1-2-3.

Race Clue #3- The winning trainer had taken the Kentucky Derby two years earlier with the jockey who finished 2nd in this race.

Race Clue #4 - This race went impressively to a colt who would never win another race.

Race Clue #5 - Meanwhile, the two closest to him at the finish both went on to successful racing careers.

Race Clue #6 - In their next race, the top three would run in the Santa Anita, Arkansas, and Illinois Derbies respectively.

Race Clue #7 - One of three would be bet down to 5-2 in the following year’s Breeders’ Cup Classic.

Race Clue #8 - All three arrived in Louisville, but the winner of this race was scratched due to an injury discovered the day before the Derby.

Race Clue #9- From there, he did not race again for more than a year, before finally returning in Northern California.

Race Clue #10 - The distance of this particular edition was shorter than it will be run in 2014.


You should know it by now … Tell me the race and the year!

Your too modest, Michael, congratulations and enjoy Zenyatta! Got anything memorable this Saturday? :D
brian has an uncanny knack for zeroing in on races/horses that have special emotional importance to me. it's virtually always an agonizing emotion. tonight was totally positive, as borrego brought me one of my most memorable scores ever.
I can't tell you the amount of time I've seen MichaelHarris win these quiz. It is unbelievable, guy is like a walking encyclopedia for horse racing.
Very nice ... Congratulations on the excellent solve, and ... congratulations on winning the Zenyatta DVD. Please email me your mailing address at zipseatthetrack@live.com, so that I can get it in the mail asap!
i actually didn't remember wimbledon at all. borrego was the key - knew espinoza rode him and had won the derby for baffert two years prior.
i wasn't either Ernie. haha.
WOW - HARD! I was nowhere near that trail. Michael rules
How did you know it was Wimbledon's Louisiana Derby win, Michael?
2011 Florida Derby.
It is not the 2011 Donn, but ... it is the 2004 Louisiana Derby!
That was a bad guess.
04 la derby
2011 Donn Handicap
Sorry, it is not the 2008 Wood.
I want revenge
