Who Am I ???

Who Am I ???

*Knowing the name of my dam is the key to knowing in which state I was bred.

*My connections were especially hopeful of my prospects after my third lifetime start.

*I wasn't the first big winner for my well known trainer, who was also famous as a rider.

*A winner of better than 80% of my races, I was favored in more than 90% of them.

*My debut came in a stakes race; as a matter of fact, my first five career races were all stake wins.

*Racing only on the dirt, I won at distances ranging from 5 ½ furlongs to 1 ¼ miles.

*My most important victory came in the only race I ever ran outside of New York.

*I was a strong contributor to my sire's national ranking during my first two years of racing.

*My defeat in the Brooklyn may have been avoided if I was asked for more.

*I hold a special distinction that only two other horses have since joined.

*My first three career races came at Saratoga, the final three were at Aqueduct.

You should know by now … Who Am I ???
