in Florida, I was defeated by more than 30 lengths combined in my
first three races.
with my fourth lifetime start, I rattled off ten consecutive
first grade one race saw me finish third to a future champion older mare.
trainer was inducted into the Hall of Fame in the 20th
century, but the jockey that rode me in each of my last 13 races, was
good as I was, I was far from the most famous horse ridden by that
jockey in my championship season.
first five stakes wins came at five different racetracks in five
of my victories came on the same surface, although I did try a few
times on another surface.
breaking my maiden at nine furlongs, there was a five furlong spread
between the distance of my shortest victory to my longest.
lone race outside the United States was a winning one.
did not clinch my Eclipse Award until the 14th
and final start of my fantastic season.
lived out the last 27 years of my life in the same state in which I
should know by now … Who Am I ???
