Who Am I ???

Who Am I ??? 615 X 400

 

*Bred in the Mid-Atlantic, I was purchased as a yearling for $750,000 by a prominent, European born owner.


*Both of my grandsires were bred outside the United States and were well known both on the track, as well as, the breeding shed.


*My career began and ended at the same South Florida track, and just barely spanned four seasons.


*I won my first three races, which was the first of three career winning streaks which lasted between three and seven races.


*My first stakes win came in a grade 2 race at Belmont Park against the boys.


*A winner of more than 70% of my races, I never once finished second.


*My first loss at four came in a September race named after a legend of American racing.


*In my most important start on dirt, I finished third in a historic Saratoga race as the second betting choice.


*My Hall of Fame trainer was best known for one specific race, or make that several editions of one specific race.


*In my best season, I won 9-of-11. All of them were stakes, and were mixed well between the South, Northeast, and the West.


*My best known son ran in the Kentucky Derby and Belmont Stakes for trainer, D. Wayne Lukas.
