Two female winners of Europe's most important fall race, the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe (FR-G1), have themselves produced winners of the great event. Who were these champion distaffers and their Arc-winning offspring?
Nicknamed "Lazarus" after surviving a difficult foaling that left his owners momentarily thinking he had been stillborn, this popular runner later became a Breeders' Cup champion and the subject of a National Thoroughbred Racing Association "Moment of the Year." Name him.
Only one man has trained three Triple Crown winners in North America. Who is he, and who were the horses with whom he accomplished the feat?
This American champion did not have the best of forelegs, but he certainly had talent. Since Beyer Speed Figures began being published in 1987, no horse has ever earned a higher BSF for a Triple Crown race or as a 2-year-old. Who is he, and in what races did he hang up his marks?
