Who Am I ???

who am i ???
*My speedy sire was a grade 1 winner at nine furlongs, while my dam carried the promise of longer distances.
*I first became known by the racing public as a summer juvenile with a dazzling maiden score by more than 14 lengths in New York.
*I was based in New York, but wintered in Florida, where I won a stakes in my only start there.
*My first stakes win came when I blitzed the field in a fast one-mile performance at Belmont Park.
*Three dominant wins, in as many starts, as a juvenile got the hype machine rolling.
*My regular rider was definitely of varsity quality, and a top rider on the New York circuit for many years.
*As fate would have it, the Triple Crown series was not meant to be for me.
*All 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.
*My perfect record came to an end when I tired late to be third in the Wood Memorial at odds-on.
*Unfortunately, my career ended with the nagging feeling of what might have been.
*I may have won only five races in my career, but I certainly had them buzzing for awhile.
You should know by now … Who Am I ???
