Who Am I ???

Who Am I ???

 

*Bred in the great state of Kentucky, I was the finest son of an American champion.

*I earned more than a million dollars back in a day when it really meant something special.

*A winner of 57% of my races, I was a multiple stakes winner in each of my three seasons on the track.

*I was beaten by more than 15 lengths in my career debut, but came right back to win my next race at Belmont by more than 5.

*I won my first stakes race at Saratoga and my last at Aqueduct, with stakes victories at eight other tracks in between.

*My richest stakes victory came in the Garden State.

*In my only start west of the Mississippi, I was a stakes winner at Hollywood Park.

*I was not the first champion for my foreign born trainer, nor was I his last.

*In my two starts in front of the flamingos, I won one stakes race easily, and finished out of the money in the slop in the other.

*I won races at ten different distances and broke track records at a few of the longer distances on that list.

*No, I've never personally been to any mountains in Italy.

You should know by now … Who Am I ???

Congrats Greg!
Thanks Brian. I wrote a paper back in school on Meadow Stable and the clue of 57% did it for me, then every clue fit right into place including mountains in Italy clue, where John Tweedy namied Riva Ridge after victory there by Army in 1945.
I was thinking Riva Ridge, but for some reason I thought he finished second in the Hollywood Derby.
Welcome back to the winner's circle, Greg ... how were you the first to know that the answer to tonight's puzzle was the two-time champion, Riva Ridge?
Always a step behind... OK three steps this time!
can
the last hint gave it away!

Yeah, I think It's Riva Ridge too.
My favorite silks of Meadow Stable!
