Race Horse. Born at the Claiborne Farm Paris, Kentucky, he was a graded stakes-winner and one of the only surviving sons of the renowned Triple Crown winner Secretariat. Due to a foot injury he didn't begin his racing career until age four, winning a stakes victory on the turf in the 1991 Early Times Manhattan Handicap. After 19 Starts, he retired compiling 5 Wins, 3 Places, 1 Show and earnings of $226,943. In retirement, he was breeding stock at Win Row Farm in Lebanon, Ohio, until 2009, when he was sponsored by actress Angie Dickinson and relocated to the Old Friends Thoroughbred Retirement Farm in Georgetown, Kentucky. He died of complications from chronic laminitis.
