Most racing buffs know that Black Gold was the only Kentucky Derby winner to collect four "Derby" wins during the course of his 3-year-old season. However, there is another winner of a Triple Crown race who also won four "Derby" races. Who was he, and what were his Derby victories?

Also just to be a bit of a brat......California Chrome also collected 4 Derbies. He won the Kentucky Derby in 2014, Sanita Anita Derby in 2014, Hollywood Derby in 2014, and California Cup Derby in 2014. The other Triple Crown Race he won was the Preakness in 2014.

LOL, well my mind works kind of oddly at times when it comes to trivia. That and unless things are very specificly stated in a question that has more than one answer I like to hedge my bets.
