Travers contender Moonshine Mullin is by Albert the Great (TrueNicks), who nearly held on to win the 2000 edition (video) but was caught in the final strides by Unshaded. Belmont (gr. I) winner Ruler On Ice is by Roman Ruler (TrueNicks,SRO), third behind Flower Alley (TrueNicks,SRO) and Bellamy Road (TrueNicks,SRO) in the 2005 Travers (video).
