*Bred in Florida, I was purchased as a two-year-old in training for less than 1/15th of what I would go on to win on the track.
*I was the son of a Kentucky Derby winner, but I missed my chance at the big race due to injury.
*All of my early success came in the state of Florida, but I became a stakes winner in California and New York as an older horse.
*There is a very good reason why my favorite holiday was always Christmas.
*I won two of the six Kentucky Derby preps I ran in early in my three-year-old season.
*I finally snared my first grade 1 victory in my sixth try.
*The second of my two trainers was inducted into Racing’s Hall of Fame five years after my retirement.
*A stakes winner at 2, 3, and 4, I went winless in my fourth and final season of racing.
*Just like dear old dad, my most important career victory came at big odds.
*I sired more than 30 stakes winners, including a horse who ran in the same Breeders’ Cup race twice, and was favored once.
*Finally passing at the age of 30, I lived a long life on the farm owned by the man who purchased me as a juvenile.
