Friday Trivia Challenge for 1/22/16
John E. Madden bred or co-bred five winners of the Kentucky Derby and five winners of the Belmont Stakes, but when he dispersed his racing and breeding stock in 1926, none of these Classic winners was the lone horse he kept. Instead, he kept a former champion who had failed badly in his lone Classic attempt. Even after Madden died in 1929, his will made provision for his old favorite to be maintained at his farm, Hamburg Place, and the horse was buried there when he finally died in 1930. Who was this animal, and what was the Classic he started in without winning it?
