Hall of Fame Race Horse. Foaled in Florida, the offspring of Skip Trial and Ingot Way, he was purchased by Hall of Fame trainer Hubert "Sonny" Hine for his wife Carolyn. The gray stallion recorded his first major win at the Blue Grass Stakes in 1996, followed by an eighth place finish in the Kentucky Derby, and secured second place finishes in the Preakness and Belmont Stakes that year. He defeated Hall of Fame horse Cigar at the Jockey Club Gold Cup in 1996, and earned the Eclipse Award as champion three-year-old male. He captured first place at the Breeder's Cup Classic in 1997, also repeating as champion at the Jockey Club Gold Cup during that year, and was named Horse of the Year in 1998. In addition, he was named Champion Older Male Horse twice (1997 and 1998). During the course of his career, he compiled 18 victories in 38 races and amassed earnings of over 9.6 million. He was inducted into the National Museum of Racing's Hall of Fame in 2004. He died from a heart attack at age 17. (bio by: C.S.)
