Who Am I ???

*A homebred with impeccable breeding, I was not a son of the bluegrass.

*I won just a shade under half of my starts while winning a grand total of nine stakes races.

*My sire and his sire lost less races in their combined careers than I did in any one of my three seasons of racing.

*I never ran in the Kentucky Derby, but one of my initial stakes wins came at Churchill Downs.

*Both my owner and my trainer are members of Racing‘s Hall of Fame, so is my most regular rider.

*My final career race was on the grass, but that was not the norm.

*I won stakes in each of my three years on the track, but two-thirds came in one season.

*My greatest rival and I faced each other ten times over three seasons, and I got the better of him four times.

*I was a multiple stakes winner at each of the three major New York racetracks.

*My Eclipse Award was the result of my 2nd season on the track.

*Not to sound overly boastful, but everyone wishes they had me.

You should know by now … Who Am I ???

Orginally I had thought Secretariat. But once you said that he didn't run in the Derby, that was rules him out. Also when you said the rival was a male, which ment more then likely that the horse in question was also male. So I looked at the Eclipse list for three year old males and Key to Mint was the first one that I had to look to see if he didn't run in the Derby.
