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.
