Who Am I ???

*I began my career in Maryland and won seven of my first eight starts.

*I was an East Coaster, but both of my trips to the left coast resulted in victories.

*In my only attempt at 10 furlongs, I was 2nd, beaten only ¾ of a length in a grade 1 stakes race at Belmont.

*I won multiple stakes in each of my three seasons of racing.

*Bred in Maryland, the great Bold Ruler was my grandsire.

*I had many different riders and two different trainers. Both of my trainers are now members of the Hall of Fame.

*I was known more as a sprinter, but I did defeat a champion around two turns.

*I lost my final career start by a neck when I gave the winner, a son of Northern Dancer, 15 pounds in a stakes race at Aqueduct.

*I raced at 13 different racetracks in my 31 career starts.

*Carrying a lot of weight never bothered me, I carried more than 130 pounds in more than one of my wins.

*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 ???
