Reader Challenge: Belmont Mystery
Written by Ian Tapp | Jul 08, 2010 |
Reader challenge: The pedigree of this racehorse (pictured at Belmont Park) features inbreeding to a runner-up in both the Manhattan Handicap and Jockey Club Gold Cup. This racehorse's sire also appears in the pedigree of a recent gr. I winner at Belmont. Your challenge is to answer the following questions in the comments section below:
- 1. Who is this racehorse?
- 2. Who is the inbred ancestor?
- 3. What recent gr. I winner's pedigree features this horse's sire?
- 4. What race is shown below?
UPDATE: Congrats to refrain, Kirsten, ericarole, HLLIKINS, Carissa, and russf for their correct identification of Waya (by Faraway Son), inbred 4 x 4 to Judy O'Grady, and pictured here winning the 1978 Man O'War Stakes (Click for Video).
