Who Am I ???

*A Kentucky bred, I boast Mr. Prospector and Danzig as my great grandsires.

*I won a total six stakes races, three of them were Grade 1s, and three of them were won by at least six lengths.

*I raced in two consecutive Breeders‘ Cups and two consecutive Santa Anita Handicaps, but I won none of them.

*I raced well on turf and dirt, but dirt was my most successful surface.

*Well traveled, I raced in two different countries and my first six career starts took place in six different states.

*I earned more than two million dollars in my four year racing career.

*Trainers and jockeys came and went, I had three different trainers and I lost count after ten riders.

*Rumor has it, ZATT was there the day my dad won the Louisiana Derby.

*As a sophomore, I was victorious in stakes on opposite corners of the nation.

*Unfortunately, I finished my career on a fifteen race losing streak, most of them in Grade 1 races.

*If you are thinking I may be a bay or a chestnut, you are way off base.

You should know by now … Who Am I ???

The first useful clue was the La. Derby winner - figured within the BC time frame, only Risen Star, Grindstone and Petionville were sires I recognized.

I searched progeny of those at Pedigree Query and sorted by lifetime earnings. Petionville had Island Fashion at the very top, over $2M - 2nd best clue - and the pedigree chart verified the Mr. P and Danzig.

Pure 'Net research - had no clue otherwise.

Island Fashion was one of my favorite fillies. Actually one of her full sisters had a Hard Spun filly this year.
