A great champion on the track, this Hall of Famer might have been a champion in the breeding shed as well except for one problem: he was less than enthusiastic about his stallion duties. Further, he passed his relative indifference to l'amour down to several of his male-line descendants. In spite of himself, he became an important sire. Who was this reluctant Romeo?
