RC correctly pegged Affectionately as the "Queen of Queens", who won 13 stakes races at Aqueduct, located in the NYC borough of Queens. She was American co-champion 2yo filly in 1962 and American champion sprinter and co-champion handicap female in 1965. The new trivia question is now up; can you guess the identity of this week's mystery matriarch?

Lynn S. did a bang-up job ferreting out Planet's daughter Ballet as the mystery mare in last week's question. (For the record, Ballet's American Horse of the Year descendants are The Manager, Regret, and Exterminator.) A new trivia question is now posted for everyone's enjoyment. http://www.americanclassicpedigrees.com/hoofprints

Looks like last week's "name's the same" question was a stumper. The name looked for was "Floreal," borne by the 1909 Kentucky Oaks winner (female) and the 1905 Gran Premio Nacional (Argentine Derby) winner (male). A new trivia question is now posted for everyone's enjoyment. http://www.americanclassicpedigrees.com/hoofprints

Cheri identified Manuel as the last member of 16-time American champion sire Lexington's male line to win the Kentucky Derby. (He came home first in 1899.) A new weekly trivia question has now been posted. http://www.americanclassicpedigrees.com/hoofprints

Janet was spot-on, pegging Hard Ridden as the cheapest auction yearling to become a Derby Stakes winner (the winner of the 1958 race, he sold for 270 guineas). She also had Spearmint, the 1906 winner, as the second cheapest at 300 guineas. A new trivia question is now posted for everyone's enjoyment.

I was just wondering the age of the oldest mare to foal a Kentucky Derby winner or Triple Crown Winner , and the same question regarding the oldest sire. The previous question has got me wondering ........

Janet was the first to come up with the excellent matron Valkyr, who could beat a Belmont Stakes winner but could not capture a stakes against her own sex. A new trivia question now awaits anyone interested.http://www.americanclassicpedigrees.com/hoofprints

Krista correctly identified Stone Street as the Kentucky Derby winner whose former co-owner wanted to be rid of his interest in the horse that he threw in a horse blanket to sweeten the deal when he sold out. A new trivia question is now ready for all comers. http://www.americanclassicpedigrees.com/hoofprints
