Who Am I ???

*Sired by a Horse of the Year, I was bred in Kentucky by my owner.

*I won just a shade under two-thirds of my starts while only finishing out of the money once, and that was the result of an injury.

*Well traveled, I won stakes races on the East Coast, West Coast and the Midwest.

*My victories came at a distance range of ten furlongs between the shortest and the longest, my losses ranged nine furlongs.

*I was a stakes winner at six different tracks, but my first and last both came at Aqueduct.

*My jockeys, including the Hall of Fame ones, liked to wear polka dots.

*My Eclipse Awards were the result of my 2nd season on the track.

*I once carried at least 130 ponds in six consecutive starts.

*My sire won a double digit amount of stakes, and I won quite a few more than he did.

*My greatest rival and I evenly split our four contests over two seasons.

*Despite my name, I was born, bred, and raced in the USA.

You should know by now … Who Am I ???

A New World's Record!!!

Damascus it is, and in one minute ... skipaway2000, you're my hero!

Tell us all how you got it so incredibly fast.

YAYY!!! I have been trying forever to win this! I love the Damascus/Dr. Fager rivalry, wish I'd seen it in person. I think the polka dots clue sealed it for me!

Wow. I didn't even read half of the hints and there's a winner. Good job, skipaway.

Brian Zipse said...

Congratulations! I have a feeling your record will never be broken, and I will never give polka dots as a clue again. ;-)

Hehehe, can I put the world record on my resume'?

Brian Zipse said...

Resume??? After tonight, I don't think you will even need a resume any more! ;-)

Darn it. Damascus, of course! I always think when I read these that it's going to be some unknown horse, at least one that isn't as known as Damascus. You're a tricky one Brian.
