Who Am I ???


*Bred in one country, I began my career in another, where I ran all my races in my first season of racing.

 

*A first-out winner, I won half of my starts at three, but finished well back in my only stakes attempt.

 

*Let go at odds of 19-1, my American debut saw me finish third at Santa Anita.

 

*Sent to Kentucky, I earned my first two U.S. wins 11 days apart, including a graded stakes score at Keeneland.

 

*My next three starts came in New York, where I went winless in big races like the Grade 1 Manhattan Handicap.

 

*I left town to earn my first Grade 1 victory, a hard-fought win over a classy field in Chicago.

 

*My next eight starts all came in the Empire State, beginning with the Grade 1 Man O’ War.

 

*Unfortunately, I finished mid-pack in my only start in the Breeders’ Cup.

 

*Sent to the barn of a Hall of Famer at five for my new owners, I began that season at the Big A. 

 

*After a just-miss performance at Belmont, I won my second, and final, Grade 1 at Saratoga.

 

*Interestingly, I was twice sold at auction for seven figures.
