Who Am I ???

who am i ???

*Bred in the great state of Kentucky, my sire won the prestigious Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe.

*Despite running 9 times in France, the majority of my races were contested in the United States.

*I was once sold for millions, not as a yearling, but rather in the fall of my five-year-old year.

*My biggest win came while romping in the signature race at a track in the Midwest.

*Both of my trainers were masters; unfortunately both of them have passed away.

*I was successfully ridden by two of the most legendary jockeys in history; one in America, one in France.

*My only attempt in the Breeders' Cup saw me finish in the money in a race where nearly half the field were champions.

*I tried dirt only three times with the best result being a 3rd place finish in a grade 1 at Hollywood Park.

*Nominated to the Hall of Fame, I was somehow turned away by the voters.

*2nd in a group 1 race in my third lifetime start, I did not become a grade 1 winner until my fourth start in America.

*Despite my years in France, I favored the King of Beers.

You should know by now … Who Am I ???

Wow, that was a Sprint tonight! Congrats to mhswinds!
Swain
The Mid-West clue told me it was a major race at Arlington, I wasn't a 100% sure if she was born in the US, but it turned out that I was right. The Bud clue narrowed the race I was looking for to the Arlington Million.

Dang! Looks like I missed by 10 seconds.
