Who Am I ???

Who Am I ???


*Bred on the Eastern Seaboard, I competed at eight tracks, but none farther west than Lexington, Kentucky.

*I won 43%, and finished in the money in 80% in a career that lasted four seasons.

*My trainer was a buddy as much as a racing manager.

*In my championship season, I won four stakes races with an average winning margin of more than five lengths.

*My owner was also president of the track where I celebrated my most career victories.

*All of my victories came on the dirt, with a 4 ½ furlong spread from the shortest to the longest.

*In all these years, only two winners have recorded a faster time than I did in a big stakes due to be run again real soon.

*My first stakes win did not come until I was a five-year-old.

*One of my finest performances came in a fast edition of a race that was won more than once by Hall of Famer, Shuvee.

*You can say I was always hot, but my longest career winning streak only lasted three races.

*In my career finale, I defeated another champion in what is now a grade 1 race.

You should know by now … Who Am I ???

You're right Footy. To me that was the real golden age of racing.
I know. It sounds cliche, but those really were the days. I really loved going to the track then.
Mares(correction). Too many to give proper respect to.
The 1960's saw some incredible fillies and mates,
Sorry about the walk down memory lane, but it is nice to remember some of those great fillies and mares and others
Yes that field was incredible and you are right the norm at the time. But that was when money was made racing and not in breeding. I went to Spendthrift years later and saw Raise a Native, Prince John, Ridan, Swaps and Nashua. They brought out a sweet mare with a small goal by her side. I looked at the halter marker, it said What A Treat on it. I was so excited I said I saw you sin the Mother Goose and Black eyed Susan. They let me hold her lead rope. Her foal was by Never Bend who was also standing t Spendthrift then. The foal was named Bendara and she raced not very successfully against Buckpasser's great daughter Numbered Account
Tumiga I remember along with Rhubarb, there was Cornish Prince and an old ex claimer Flag Raiser and Choker. I made a mistake it was not Lady Cavandish but Miss Cavandish she won the CCAO, Delaware Oaks and Alabama. Also another one I liked was Native Street.

Buckpasser-I do remember that field. Just looking at the quality of that field really makes me wonder what has happened to the industry. Amazing that back then we were used to fields like that, and now we are lucky to get three top horses in the same field.
I do remember Tosmah's AC. Lady Cavandish seems familiar, but not sure. I also remember Loco Kid and Indian Emerald. There was another that escapes my memory, Chief something. Tumiga, Rhubarb, etc
Footy. I remember the Beldame of 1965. It had for the morning line the following fillies and mares: Summer Scandal, What a Treat, Steeple Jill, Affectionately, Old Hat, Discipline, Straight Deal, Tosmah, and Lamb Chop. I know What a Treat won.and Affectionately, Straight Deal, Tosmah and Old Hat were in it.
I think you are right about SD. If you saw those two at Arlington do you remember Tosmah's Arlington Classic? Another favorite of mine was the Cavan filly Lady Cavandish.
Loved Straight Deal. Another who campaigned at Arlington Park. She won a turf stakes while in foal, I think.
She was a tough old campaigner. Straight Deal was another tough one a little later on.
I saw Old Hat at Arlington Park
Footy. I remember Summer Scandal and Open Fire. Also Old Hat raced against them as well.
Yes, I remember her and Summer Scandal. I was a Summer Scandal fan.
Ive taken note...
Hi footy. I like learning about the Who Am I ? answers. I know that many of the h r n regulars remember these horse from seeing them run.
another brilliant win for Mary Z.!
