Hall of Fame - 100 Million Plus in Earnings
Hall of Fame Thoroughbreds
The brilliant 6 YO race mare and homebred of top digitaldowns.us conditioner Eddie of TaylorandTaryn began her long and illustrious career in January of 2014 less than a month since Eddie began his digitaldowns.us journey as a trainer. “It all started with my first eliminator series (now the Maiden Shotgun Series) I had been here less than a month and I had bred her brother (full sib) TARYNSXMASPRESENT. He won his first round of the eliminator running a 100 speed figure. As soon as the race was over I went to the breeder page as both sire and mare were on it and bred her.” Eddie recalled. Several bullet works later her HOF career began with a bang, taking a 9F MSW event in wire to wire fashion in only her 2nd career start. Most impressive about the victory was the way the young filly did it. The daughter of FLOYD set a blistering pace that day, dictating the pace through splits of 46.09 1:10.55 and finished in dazzling 1:48.51 earning a 99 speed rating. The rest they say was history.
As consistent and brilliant as they come, this terrific race mare danced every dance on her way to recording 30 wins, 25 places, and 21 shows (as of this writing) for a superb 52% ITM percentage and a 20% win clip against the best of the best, season after season. Sprinting or Routing she’s had a nose for the wire having won races as short as 5F and as long as 12F. Her workman like performance each and every time has her set to break the all-time earning list soon, as she also creeps ever closer to capturing the all-time runs milestone of 153.
This writer’s fondest memory of her career came in the USA Cup in her 3 YO season (now Red Rose Oaks) the 3rd and final leg of the digitaldowns.us Triple Crown. Taken back early and under a snug hold from world class jockey J. Krone the TNT homebred, uncoiled an Azeri-like performance, circling the field on the outside picking off rivals down the lane on her way to a world and stakes record of 2:31.33 that still stands today. Her Season 29 Champion trainer also holds this race as the defining moment of her HOF career saying “My favorite race of hers was the 1 ½ mile Triple Crown Race in her three year old year. She drew the 11 hole and as I watched the race, I was just amazed at her run around the whole field to win by open lengths and set the track record.” Every year she’s been able to make the final in all 3 divisions of the champ series. Sprints, Classics, or Routes she was always there, and will always be a horse I think of when I think of HOF champions.
The regally bred son of LUNAR FLY ended his career as the all-time leader in career earnings just shy of 1.5 million (in credits). He boasts a staggering 38% career win percentage and an all-world 71% ITM from 106 runs! There were few times this HOF failed to fire on the race track.
The multiple stakes winner impressed as a juvenile capturing the prestigious Eliminator Final. His dominance continued at 3 with a brilliant victory in the 50K added Pension Plan, earning a 100 speed figure in the process. As the distances increased and the seasons went by, this race warrior continued his winning ways to a HOF worthy career.
Corn Beef Hash
The speedy millionaire gelding currently sits in 3rd place on the all-time list in career earnings as well as being the sole leader in career runs with a staggering 152! Primarily campaigned as a sprinter the speedy create wasn’t always at the top of his game and was claimed for the rock bottom price of 2Kc TWICE! As he changed barns so did his results on the track. He won the prestigious Super Star Sprint Series final (now run as the champ series) along with several other big races on his way to whopping 53 career scores, 2nd only to BILLY’S ROYAL PLAN for wins.
Additionally, on his long journey to a HOF career he set several track records in the process and was awarded several 100 pt speed figures. With his longevity and nose for the wire on the biggest of stages we welcome CORN BEEF HASH to the HOF!
The multiple stakes winning millionaire gelding is best known for winning the richest race in digitaldowns.us history by taking the High Roller Stakes Final and winning the lion’s share of the 1 million credit purse (500Kc) to pad his already lofty bankroll! The 29 time winner was a versatile sprinter, who successfully stretched when asked also winning the 9F 20Kc Added Big Timer Stakes over the turf. He finished his career with an impressive 30% strike rate and a career 97 speed figure. We welcome the “Champ” to the HOF!
The closest thing to perfection the game has ever experienced in a racehorse remains the standard by which all virtual horses are measured. The once in a lifetime race mare defied what most would consider to be of modest lineage into a legendary race and broodmare career.
As a juvenile she ripped off 7 straight wins using her incredible speed and power and closed the season undefeated and still untested. She would continue on her “tour-de-horse” winning most every race she was entered for the rest of her career for a jaw-dropping 75% win percentage and an eye-popping 93% ITM rate.
Her legacy would continue on in the breeding shed, where she would foal two of the most influential sires in the game in COLONEL TROLL (8Kc earnings per race) and KILLED TO DEATH (4.5K earnings per race) who would pass on their mother’s brilliance to their offspring in hopes of one day seeing another just like her. We continue to wait.
