Who Am I ???

*I won more than half of my lifetime starts and only finished out of the money one time.

*My biggest victory was the perfect race to win for my owner.

*My five career stakes wins came at five different racetracks and at five different distances.

*I ran two of my finest races in my final two races, unfortunately neither produced a victory.

*Just under half of my lifetime starts were in the Garden State.

*One of my primary jockeys was easily more than double the age of my other primary rider.

*My name is 50% my mother and 50% my father.

*As a three-year-old, I was not a champion, although I bested the champ in what would be each of our final career start.

*Unfortunately, I ran ninth in the race directly following my most important win.

*I was an East Coast guy, never having raced west of Hialeah, Florida, and ending my career at the Spa.

*My undistinguished career as a stallion included time in Illinois, Maryland and Kentucky.

You should know by now … Who Am I ???

Marias Mon.

Brian Zipse said...

Maria's Mon is not the correct answer today Michael.

I think our defending champion, Tim, liked his answer so much he said it twice.

Nice job Michael

Ciarán said...

Nice work!

Michael said...

Well, I pulled out my 2004 Blood-Horse Stallion register and went through the Illinois leading sires using the name clue, figuring that Illinois would not have much to look at. That was after I ruled out Broad Brush, Allens Prospect and Our Emblem.

All net from mid-court!!!!!
