Equipoise racehorse

Equipoise raced against very strong opponents in 1930 and 1931 when he was part of what the Chicago Tribune newspaper called the "big four" in racing which included Jamestown , Mate , and Twenty Grand . [1] As a two-year-old, Equipoise got his first stakes victory when he won the Keene Memorial Stakes at Belmont Park . He then beat Twenty Grand and Mate to win the Pimlico Futurity , despite being left in the gate and racing right out of two of his shoes. When his jockey Sonny Workman was asked if this was his greatest race, Workman replied: "My greatest race? Hell, it may have been the greatest race anybody ever saw."

In 1953, a healthy four-year-old Tom Fool was undefeated in ten races, He won at distances ranging from 5½ furlongs to 1¼ miles and became only the second horse to win New York's Handicap Triple Crown : the Metropolitan , Suburban and Brooklyn Handicaps . Tom Fool also won the Whitney Stakes and captured the Pimlico Special by eight lengths. This final start was a win that concluded a perfect four-year-old campaign with 10 stakes wins in as many starts. The Pimlico Special was his fourth consecutive race start in a non-betting race; by this time, few horses were entered against him. [4] In polls to determine Horse of the Year honors, Tom Fool topped polls by the Thoroughbred Racing Association (34 of a possible 37 votes) [5] and Triangle Publications (30 of 31). [6]
