Defying the conventional wisdom that "they never come back again," this juvenile champion recovered from what initially appeared to be a career-ending injury to return to racing---twice. In his first comeback, he did the near-impossible by returning to championship form. In his second, he raced respectably, but when he broke down a third time, there would be no comeback; he was euthanized a few days later when it became apparent that his case was hopeless. Nonetheless, his record for resilience in the face of adversity was truly remarkable. Name him.
