Who Am I ???

Who Am I ??? 615 X 400

 

*A Kentucky homebred, my pedigree was littered with champions on both sides.


*My career began in New York, but after my debut, my next five starts came at two different tracks in Florida.


*I broke my maiden going 8 ½ furlongs with Jerry Bailey in the irons at 7-1.


*My graded stakes debut resulted in a third place finish in front of the pink flamingos.


*I became a graded stakes winner at a track farther west than any other racetrack where I ran in my career.


*Best known for my second place finishes, I was let go at average odds of nearly 35-1 in my two most notable runner-up finishes.


*I found no success in my two attempts in America’s richest race, but my trainer has had no such problems.


*My career spanned four seasons, although I did not win at either two or five years of age.


*A racing millionaire, none of my wins came in the Northeast, where I went 0-for-8 at five different racetracks .


*I only faced my year’s Kentucky Derby winner one time, finishing one spot in front of him.


*Unfortunately, my top rival finished ahead me in five of our six meetings.


You should know by now … Who Am I ???
