Once again, TJ got there first with last week's answer (Clyde Van Dusen). The new trivia question is now posted for all challengers! http://www.americanclassicpedigrees.com/hoofprints

It was Head Play, Cree. TJ scored that one and also got the answer for the March 17 edition, Nashua. Let's see who's good for this one! http://www.americanclassicpedigrees.com/hoofprints

TJ strikes again with Sir Modred as the answer to last week's question. This week's question has a feminine theme in honor of Women's History Month---let's see who can answer a three-part question about women in racing. http://www.americanclassicpedigrees.com/hoofprints

Hi Avalyn,
I'm guessing you may all ready know the history behind Black Gold and owner/breeder Rosa Magnet Hoots, but just in case you never read this story by Winston Groom....I think you will enjoy it.
Considering there are two gravestones in the Fair Grounds infield (at the 1/16th pole) containing the remains of Black Gold and Pan Zareta...the author (Winston Groom) came in contact with Laura Hillenbrand, the author of Seabiscuit and suggested she write the story of Black Gold. She simply said "I can't, it's too sad". TJ

Loved that one TJ! Would love to know just how "little" he was. I find it ironic that the stallion who could not breed is buried next to the mare who could not foal.

Hello, Madelyn,
maybe it's a bit off topic.

Vaguely I remember from my Childhood days, Marguerite Henry (King of the Wind) wrote a book about the Story of "Black Gold".

Btw, "Black Gold" is the literally translation of the famous German race filly and later succesful broodmare "Schwarzgold" (by Alchimist)

regards from Germany, Bettina

Thanks for the link, TJ!

Elisa Holmes and Leila posted the correct answers over at American Classic Pedigrees, pegging Mrs. C. E. Durnell as owner and Mrs. J. B. Prather as breeder for the 1904 Kentucky Derby winner, Elwood. Rosa Hoots was the first woman to both breed and own a Derby winner, scoring with Black Gold in 1924.

Let's see who's on the ball for this week's challenge! http://www.americanclassicpedigrees.com/hoofprints

Pierre took over the champion's chair for the trivia challenge last week, coming up with Rush Box as the answer. Let's see who's for it this week! http://www.americanclassicpedigrees.com/hoofprints

Last week, Krista came up with the correct answer of My Babu, who was England's champion 2-year-old male under the name of "Lerins." Let's see who can come up with the answer to this week's question! http://www.americanclassicpedigrees.com/hoofprints

Last week's question was apparently a stumper---guess Smarty Jones made more of a name for himself as a racehorse than as an artist. This week's question concerns a winner of the Kentucky Oaks, so let's see who knows the fillies who won the lilies! http://www.americanclassicpedigrees.com/hoofprints

RC came up with 1936 Kentucky Oaks winner Two Bob as the answer to last week's question---well done! Now it's time for the special 5-question Kentucky Derby trivia quiz. Can you come up with the answers by post time? http://www.americanclassicpedigrees.com/hoofprints

TJ came up with the answer to last week's question, Ghadeer. This week, it's a special 5-part quiz centered on the Preakness Stakes. Enjoy! http://www.americanclassicpedigrees.com/hoofprints
