Who Am I ???

*A one-time champion, I was bred in Kentucky, and trained by a Hall of Famer most of my career.

*Well traveled, I competed in stakes races at ten different racetracks and on both sides of the Atlantic.

*I spent a great deal of time at a racetrack, and in a state, where I never once ran.

*Two-thirds of my lifetime victories came during my championship season.

*I always felt that my name was a mutual idea.

*I may not have been quite the horse that my sire was, but I did pretty well for myself.

*My stakes wins had a seven furlong spread between the shortest and the longest.

*I won only 1 of 9 races as a juvenile, but after that, I was never off the board.

*My first win was at Aqueduct, my last win in America was at Arlington Park.

*My six stakes wins occurred at five different tracks, in four states, and in two different nations.

*The First Saturday in May proved to be my coming out party.

You should know by now … Who Am I ???

Also, the juvenile record coupled with the fact he is the only derby winner that raced over in Europe.
