This horse failed to change hands on a US$20,000 bid as a yearling but two years later had a valuation between US$17 million and US$18 million as a stallion prospect after becoming a champion on the track. He proved an expensive disappointment, siring only 120 foals over the course of a thirteen-year stud career. In four out of those 13 years, he sired no foals at all. Who was he?
