speedy sire was a grade 1 winner at nine furlongs, while my dam
carried the promise of longer distances.
first became known by the racing public as a summer juvenile with a
dazzling maiden score by more than 14 lengths in New York.
was based in New York, but wintered in Florida, where I won a stakes
in my only start there.
first stakes win came when I blitzed the field in a fast one-mile
performance at Belmont Park.
dominant wins, in as many starts, as a juvenile got the hype machine
regular rider was definitely of varsity quality, and a top rider on
the New York circuit for many years.
fate would have it, the Triple Crown series was not meant to be for
of my victories came on the dirt, none coming in a race longer than 1
1/16 miles, and 80% of them came in stakes races.
perfect record came to an end when I tired late to be third in the
Wood Memorial at odds-on.
my career ended with the nagging feeling of what might have been.
may have won only five races in my career, but I certainly had them
buzzing for awhile.
should know by now … Who Am I ???
