Full siblings have won American championships before, but only once since official voting began in 1936 have full siblings won championships in the same division. Name the successful sibs, the years of their championships and the division in which they took honors.

Since it was Temperance Hill last week and I assume no other Triple Crown winner has made that trip I'll say Temperance Hill again.

Obviously somehow messed this up. Read last weeks question again and tried to be a smart ass....sorry.

Full siblings Intercontinental and Banks Hill won the American Champion Female Turf Horse in 2005 and 2001 respectively. Both ladies are by Danehill from the great producer Hasili. TJ

It's blush hour for yours truly. TJ, you are absolutely right, but I was thinking of the full brothers Bold Lad and Successor (Bold Ruler/Misty Morn). Obviously there were two sib pairs winning championships in the same category since voting began, not just one. (Not to mention Florence Nightingale and Edith Cavell, generally considered champions in the 3yo filly division in their respective years prior to the initiation of year-end voting.)
