Remember This Race?

 

Race Clue #1 - There were three former or future champions in the race, but none of them were involved in the win photo.

Race Clue #2- Three-quarters of the field came in off a victory, and three-quarters of the field went off at 7-1 or less.

Race Clue #3 - The winner of the race’s biggest previous victory had come in the Florida Derby.

Race Clue #4 - The race favorite was also favored in that year’s Kentucky Derby, but could only manage a 3rd and 4th in the two races.

Race Clue #5 - The site of this edition of the race was the host track only one time.

Race Clue #6 - Half the field was three-years-old, and the oldest horse in the race finished last.

Race Clue #7 - The winner’s trainer and jockey were best known for finishing second.

Race Clue #8 - The final time of two minutes and change made it a stakes record for just one year.

Race Clue #9- While the winner wore blinkers, he wore less headgear than the runner-up.

Race Clue #10 - The winning trainer of the 2013 Kentucky Derby was also the trainer of this race’s third choice, who finished seventh. 

 

You should know it by now … Tell me the race and the year!

Thanks, Chris, you too!
Thanks! Have a Happy Thanksgiving!
I knew that clue was telling ... blinkers, hood, shadow roll ... a Vegas showgirl indeed. Well done, Champ!
Brian, it was all about the headgear. Gate Dancer had more headgear on than a Vegas showgirl.
Sorry, Michael ... Chris was too fast. How did you nail this one down so quickly, Chris?

The Editor of Horse Racing Nation from 2010-2017, Brian authored a daily column as Zipse at the Track, or ZATT for short, and added his editorial flare to the overall content of the website. Now a Senior Writer for HRN, Brian continues to contribute his thoughts on racing, as well as co-hosting the popular racing show, HorseCenter. A big supporter of thoroughbred aftercare, he serves as the President of The Exceller Fund.
