Krista successfully identified Nellie Flag as the first homebred to win a stakes race for Calumet Farm after it switched from being a Standardbred nursery to a Thoroughbred breeding program. A new trivia question is now ready and waiting! http://www.americanclassicpedigrees.com/hoofprints

After a week's hiatus due to computer problems, the weekly trivia challenge is back with a special Kentucky Derby/Oaks edition. Can you answer all 10 questions before post time for the Kentucky Derby? http://www.americanclassicpedigrees.com/hoofprints

Sorry about the hangups in getting back with answers or a new trivia question, folks---I've been struggling with computer problems caused by a recent lightning strike. Here are the answers to the special Derby Oaks challenge posted on September 4:

1) Quaze Quilt, who shared her breeder (Fred Hooper), owner (Fred Hooper) and sire (Specialmante) with runner-up Special Team.

2) Perfect Gem, the dam of 1964 Kentucky Oaks winner Blue Norther, won a broodmare class at a Maryland horse show.

3) Amerivan was trained to her win in the 1965 Kentucky Oaks by her owner, Mary Kelm. Ms. Kelm also trained Mr. Pak, sixth in that year's Kentucky Derby.

4) Thomas McDowell had King's Daughter insured through Lloyds of London following her score in the 1906 Kentucky Oaks.

5) Miss Hawkins, the 1891 Kentucky Oaks winner, broke her maiden in an all-aged race for maidens against older males when she was a 2-year-old.

6) Black Gold, the 1924 Kentucky Derby winner, caused "The Great Runout" when bookies who had taken too many bets on him at a long price early in the year found themselves unable to pay off their bets and headed out of town ahead of their creditors.

7) Diane Crump was the first female jockey to ride in the Kentucky Derby and placed 15th on Fathom in the 1970 Derby. (In a nice touch, Churchill Downs observed the 50th anniversary of her ride by having her give the "Riders up!" call for the 2020 Kentucky Derby.)

8) The 1929 Kentucky Derby, won by Clyde Van Dusen, was the last to go off without a starting gate.

9) 1907 Kentucky Derby winner Pink Star had the lowest career earnings of any Kentucky Derby winner with US$5,750.

10) 1991 Kentucky Derby winner Strike the Gold was given the barn name of "Boyfriend" because of his friendly, playful nature.

​Congrats to Frost, who got the answers to all five of the Derby questions!

Frost correctly identified Topsider as the head-banging stallion of the last question. A new trivia question is now ready and waiting! http://www.americanclassicpedigrees.com/hoofprints

Barbara was the first to come up with the Chris Evert/Miss Musket match race as the last major match prior to the tragic Ruffian/Foolish Pleasure pairing. The two star fillies faced off in 1974, with Chris Evert the winner by 50 lengths.

The special Preakness trivia challenge is now posted! http://www.americanclassicpedigrees.com/hoofprints

Frost was spot-on in naming Include, Cigar, Vertex, and Challedon as the Maryland-breds to win the Pimlico Special prior to 2020. A new trivia question is now posted at http://www.americanclassicpedigrees.com/hoofprints.

RC correctly identified Ornament as the first American racehorse to win four "Derby" races (the 1897 St. Louis Derby, Oakley Derby, Detroit Invitational Derby, and Latonia Derby) during his 3-year-old season. A new trivia question now awaits! http://www.americanclassicpedigrees.com/hoofprints

Barbara correctly tagged Kendal as the first horse to sire a winner of the Derby Stakes (1897 hero Galtee More) and the winner of an equivalent race in South America (1905 Gran Premio Nacional/Argentine Derby winner Floreal). A new trivia question is now ready and waiting! http://www.americanclassicpedigrees.com/hoofprints

Looks like we had a stumper last week. The three-generational sequence of female champions in the United States that I was looking for was Nellie Morse (1924 co-champion 3yo filly), dam of Nellie Flag (1934 champion juvenile filly), dam of Mar-Kell (1943 champion handicap female). Better luck with this week's question! http://www.americanclassicpedigrees.com/hoofprints
