This top runner just might have been the best birthday present ever. He cost his owner's husband a net $22,500 and ended up winning 10 Grade I races. Name him.

That would be Skip Away...hall of fame trainer "Sonny" Hine bought him for his wife Carolyn, who is still active in racing today. TJ

'TJ' beat me to this one...of course he did.....as I was 'late out of the gate'...only seeing that the latest Friday Trivia Challenge had been posted, not logging in this afternoon, Saturday the 27th.

Both right, and thanks for sharing such a great memory, Joan!

Sorry about that Joan:>)....Carolyn had one in today at GP, but was a late scratch. She doesn't have any top horses anymore, but she keeps one or two in Harry Benson's care at GP. TJ
