WHAT HORSE THAT WON THE OHIO DERBY WENT ON TO WIN THE JOCKEY CLUB GOLD CUP IN TWO CONSECUTIVE YEARS?
Winning the prestigious Jockey Club Gold Cup once is an accomplishment. Winning it twice, once at 3-years-old and again at 4-years-old, is an honor. He started 38 times winning 18 times with only 4 times out of the money. These kinds of performances provide a sure pathway to the United States Racing Hall of Fame. This horse did just that in 2004. His stud career was equally as good. He sired 21 stakes winners. He died in 2010 in Midway, Kentucky. He is interred at Old Friends in Georgetown, Kentucky. Of course, we talking about the great Skip Away.
