Who Am I ???

Who Am I ??? 615 X 400

 

*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.


You should know by now … Who Am I ???

Always good to see a first-time winner ... Big congrats to you, Waya, and well solved. That is how you play Who Am I ??? Come back next week to defend your championship! Merry Christmas, everyone!
well done I was down to working through wikis of KD winners. Has 5 more till Proud Clarion... Thanks Brian always good to remember them.
Hey Waya--great answer, that one was pretty tough!
Finally got one :) I looked for longshot Kentucky Derby winners from more than 30 years ago and I found Proud Clarion, who sired the 1977 Marlboro Cup winner, Proud Birdie. When I saw that he was a Florida bred, I thought I might have it.
A Proud Clarion son....god I never would have guessed that!
How did you figure out this one was Proud Birdie, Waya?
Ding, ding, ding! Proud Birdie is correct ... Waya is tonight's winner!
Proud Birdie?
Sorry, it is not Northern Dancer.
Northern Dancer.
In this case it does not matter, because Macho Uno is also incorrect.
Can bred and foaled be different? Macho Uno?
