Who Am I ???

who am i ???

*Bred in the great state of Kentucky, I was the son of an English Horse of the Year.

*I was based primarily in California, but my final three career starts came on the East Coast.

*A winner of 47% of my lifetime starts; I did not earn my first graded stakes until February of my final racing season.

*The final two wins of my best winning streak took place on the shores of two different oceans.

*I was just one of many champions on both sides of the Atlantic for my trainer.

*Sent off at odds-on in consecutive races against a multiple Eclipse Award winner and future Horse of the Year; he narrowly defeated me both times.

*I was the best horse ever ridden by my most regular rider.

*Although bred for the turf, I was dull in my only appearance on the surface.

*None of my offspring could match my racing prowess, although I did sire 38 stakes winners.

*Six of my final seven races were Grade 1, and I won three of them by daylight.

*My power on the racetrack was almost as scary as my name.

You should know by now … Who Am I ???

Nice when it is not solved within 3 minutes, eh Darlene?
Bates Motel?
Congrats! That was a tough one tonight.
1. Son of English Champion narrows it down a lot and I knew it had to be a horse who had been OKAY at three but really matured at four or debuted at four and excelled at five. The rest was just a process of eliminating who it wasn't.
congrats to the winner
just happy got a chance to guess this time
How did you put it all together, Stacy?
Lion Heart is not it, but .... Bates Motel is right on target!
