Done a quick stock take on internationals transferred to this thread.  John Henry and Spectacular Bid both on page 68 of the old thread not transferred to this thread.  Also I think the 'Rhinegold' in the index should be 'Rheingold'.


Thanks Tim,  All fixed now.

I found some excellent profiles of American champions at http://www.jockeysite.com/stories/boldruler.htm for anyone interested.

You're right about Northern Dancer, Tonto, it's hard to go past the view that he was the most important thoroughbred last century.

The only additions I've got are the tracks for the Sir Gaylord (Aqueduct) and the unnamed sprint in January 1964 was at Hialeah Park, Miami.

There's a book on him by Kevin Chong, titled Northern Dancer, The Legendary Horse that Inspired a Nation, although the title does seem to be a bit over the top.

I don't know about that.

Why wouldn't his granddaddy Nearco have justifiable claims to that title.

Not only did he sire Northern Dancer's dad Nearctic but also Nasrullah who had his own successful branch of the family, Bold Ruler - Secretariat etc

JWH, I'd agree both he and Nearco were supremely influential. Maybe the fact that Northern Dancer was fertile for so long and around 80% of modern thoroughbreds have his blood might tip the scales in his favour but both have an amazing legacy.

This article is a good overview of Northern Dancer and his place in history

Thanks for the additional info PWA.  I have added it to the record. 

Kevin Chong's book probably doesn't seem over stated to a Canadian.  The horse was lauded as a national hero and was even given the keys to the city carved out of a carrot... which he promptly ate.  Someone made the point that Northern Dancer was a Canadian hero before the familiar maple leaf flag had been adopted. In fact his career coincided with the flag debate in Canada, and it is not that often that the Canadians shake down their loud and obnoxious neighbours but Northern Dancer did that too. 

As for him being the most influential thoroughbred of the 20th century, I did say 'arguably'.  ;)

By being the granddaddy of Northern Dancer then in my book Nearco deserves some of the regard that Norther Dancer is due.

My point is that he not only has Northern Dancer's deeds , but  also the deeds of Nasrullah - Bold Ruler and Secretariat on his CV.

Therefore if Northern Dancer scores a 10 then, ipso facto, Nearco must score higher.

I have Northern Dancer's complete record.  According to the DRF book his first 3 starts were all at Fort Erie and next 3 at Woodbine.  His first start in 1964 was on 10 Feb at Hialeah beaten a head + 2L by Chieftain over 6f at level weights (placed 3rd).  Then on 24 Feb he ran in an exhibition race for no prize and no wagering at Hialeah beating Chieftain by 7L at level weights over 7f. in a field of 3 in a quick time of 1.23.4 on a track rated good.  This race is not counted by DRF in its official record but is included in the list of races run.  He then won the Flamingo at his next official start on 3 March 1964.   He had 7 different jockeys in his 18 official starts. R Ussery only rode him when beaten by Chieftain and DRF notes the horse was bumped at the start. Nothern Dancer won 5 races later classified as Grade 1 races being Flamingo Stakes, Florida Derby, Blue Grass Stakes
Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes. 
I hope to unscramble the US abbreviations on the weekend and post the stuff so Tontonan can fix the record up.

JWH, that's a good point. I've read more about Northern Dancer than Nearco so that swayed me but now having a look at Nearco, his contribution is massive.

Growing up mid-late last century in Australia, international racing and breeding wasn't covered that well in the press, at least where I lived, and there wasn't that much from memory in Racetrack and Turf Monthly, so much of the international material is fairly new. The German racing scene, for example, to me was a total unknown. Now reading a little more on Northern Dancer's Canadian reputation, I'll be more cautious in making sweeping generalisations in future!

As always if anyone has a full or better record please post it.  I will massage the posts to incorporate it and delete what is duplicated. It has worked a few times on the other thread - a partial record is posted, additional information is forthcoming, the record is completed.  It should be what the forum is about.

Tim, the Wikipedia claims that the Vandal Stakes was ' run annually since 1956 at Woodbine Racetrack in Toronto, Ontario.' and is restricted to 2YO's bred in Ontario. It also claims that the Vandal Stakes was held at Fort Erie between 1970 and 1985 over 6½ furlongs.  If that is so then it suggests the 1963 edition was run at Woodbine but curiously the 1963 race, which has been conducted at various distanmces from 5 to 7 furlongs, was also conducted at 6½ furlongs.  Could this mean the race was actually held at Fort Erie ? 

Another interesting side fact is that EP Taylor, the millionaire horseman that owned Windfield Farms and bred Northern Dancer also owned Fort Erie racetrack.
It was announced Fort Erie would close to racing in 2012 but it has limped on.  However the Wiki article ends with,

" Dachshund racing was added to the track's schedule in 2018; the success of the first race held that year led to the addition of a basset hound race for 2019."    :what:

Tontonan - here is what I have on Northern Dancer from DRF publications.  Pick is apart as you see fit.                                     
Odds converted to Australian method of including $1.00 stake with the dividend.                                     
It is possible that in those races where he started as equal favourite as a 2YO he was bracketed with another horse owned in the same interests.                                    

The career record compiled by timw has ben transferred to the Northern Dancer profile above in Reply 102

On the issue of Northern Dancer's ancestors I dare to add that once we mention Nasrullah and his sire Nearco then perhaps it it is not too much of a stretch to note that one of Nearco's grand dams is Catnip a daughter of Spearmint and a grand daughter of Carbine.    Plucky Leige is another daughter of Spearmint that  turns up in pedigrees.  Interestingly Bald Eagle (USA) 1955 (12 wins including 5 later classfied as grade 1)  who started his career in the UK before a very successful career in the USA had both Catnip and Plucky Leige in his pedigree.   Cheers

There are two other Australasian lines in the Dancer's pedigree through another son of Musket, Trenton (NZ).  Trenton sired Rosaline dam of Rosedrop who was the dam of Gainsborough.   Gainsborough appears on both sides of the Dancer's pedigree.

I will keep my ere out for Gainsborough.

As we are sort of on the topic of famous international sires I stumbled on Bold Ruler's 4YO record in DRF's American Racing Manual of 1959. DRF voted him Best Sprinter of 1958.  This is interesting as he only had 2 starts over sprint distances winning over 6f and 7f before running 2nd over a 1 mile.  He then won his next 3 starts over 9f. and 10f. before finishing the year out 7th over 9.5f. All races were under big weights (60-62kg). I suspect the editors could not put him in front of Round Table (4YO - 1958 horse of the year with 14 wins from 20 starts) so they decided to sneak him in as best sprinter.  Gallant Man another top performer that also came out of the same foal crop beat Bold Ruler over the 8f. trip carrying 5 lbs less then went on to win the Hollywood Gold Cup that year.  Round Table and Bold Ruler never met as 4YOs.  It seems Gallant Man did not race against Bold Ruler.  Bold Ruler had the upper hand against Gallant Man winning 2 out of 3.

BALD EAGLE (USA) 1955                                       
Bay horse                                       
Nasrullah (GB) 1940 (Nearco (ITY) 1935) - Siama (USA) 1947 (Tiger (USA) 1935)                                       
Carbine (NZ) 1885 is an ancestor both Nearco and Tiger through two daughters of Spearmint (GB) 1903 (Catnip (IRE) 1910 and Plucky Leige (GB) 1912 are grandams of Nearco and Tiger respectively).                                       
Countries raced: UK, USA                                       
29 starts, 12 wins (5 x G1L), 5 seconds, 4 thirds.  Win % 41.4, Place % 72.4.                                        
England earnings in British pounds (GBP)   GBP 6,289.26                                    
GBP earnings include an estimate for 3rd place in St James Palace Stakes calculated as follows: First of £4,864 x 100/70 x 10% = £694.86 (decimalised).                                       
Equibase has England USD equivalent earnings as USD 16,504 whereas I have calculated it as USD 17,610.                                       
United States earnings in United States dollars (USD)   USD 676,442.50                                    
Worldwide earnings in United States dollars (USD)   USD 694,052.52

Worldwide earnings in Japanese yen (JPY)   JPY 249,858,908                                    
** Based on PACIFIC Exchange Rate Service http://fx.sauder.ubc.ca annual rates for each year against USD 1.00 (© 2016 by Prof. Werner Antweiler, University of British Columbia. All rights reserved. Sources: IMF, World Bank, OECD, Own.)                                       
For France equivalent earnings before 1960 old francs (OF) have been ignored and 'FRF' refers to the new franc (NF) equivalent (100 OF = 1 NF).                                          
For Australian equivalent earnings before 14 February 1966 Australian pounds have been ignored and converted to Australian dollars at the rate of 1 pound = 2 dollars (AUD 2.00).                                       
Prizemoney comparisons: When Bald Eagle ran in the Epsom Derby of 1959 it carried a first prize of GBP 20,036.50 or AUD 50,091.00 or USD 56,102.00.  The Melbourne Cup first prize of 1959 was AUD 31,000 or USD 34,719.00.  In the USA Bald Eagle competed in 15 races with a first prize exceeding USD 50,000.00 of which 11 were more than double the 1959 Melbourne Cup first prize.                                          
"(G1L)" means the race won was later granted Grade 1 status by the US Thoroughbred Owners and Breeders Association Graded Stakes Committee in 1973 the year American races were first graded.  The grading does not operate retrospectively.                                        
Bald Eagle ran in 9 races in the USA where course records were set.  He won four.  He set course records on dirt at 8f. (1609m.) 10f. (2012m.) and 13f. ( 2615m.) and on grass/turf at 12f. (2414m.)                                       
RACING RECORD                                       
US $ odds have been altered to reflect the Australian methodolgy that is a $1.00 stake is added to the US dividend (eg: US dividend of $1.15 is written as $2.15)                                         
The prizemoney earned for each race appears at the end of each racing record save that in three cases the amount is an estimate and is stated as such.  The two US estimates have no bearing on the total prizemoney earned in any of the currencies as the exchange rates used are annual rates obtained from the source stated above.  These are a fair allocation of an unallocated amount for the 1959 year of USD 2,250 which was not allocated by the DRF book consulted.

I am enjoying discovering some of these horses that I know very little of but who achieved so much.  Bald Eagle raced in Britain and America, dirt and turf.  He repeatedly ran record time and it often took a horse running a course record to beat him. 

While I am no expert it has always seemed to me that Nasrullah is a land mark horse historically who marks the end of the Jersey law (or at least the beginning of the end) and resumption of trans Atlantic breeding which has a huge influence on the evolution of the modern thoroughbred.

Also interesting were the Australiasian influences in Bald Eagle's pedigree.  You have maentioned Carbine's contribution through Nearco and he is also present in the pedigree of Hemlock on the dam's side and the dam sire of Bull Dog.  Also Australian bred Darebin is present as the sire of Emma C, dam of Commando, in the pedigree of Black Toney,

Another interesting side fact is that EP Taylor, the millionaire horseman that owned Windfield Farms and bred Northern Dancer also owned Fort Erie racetrack.
It was announced Fort Erie would close to racing in 2012 but it has limped on.  However the Wiki article ends with,

" Dachshund racing was added to the track's schedule in 2018; the success of the first race held that year led to the addition of a basset hound race for 2019."    :what:

Anyone know who the Nothern Dancer of basset hound racing is?

*The Biographical Encyclopaedia of British Flat Racing states the winner met her on 13 lbs better terms than 'weight-for-sex'.                                      
There are all sorts of theories about the reason for her defeat about which I can find any agreement. See commentary in this book, tbheritage.com, wikipedia and The Times.   I note her regular rider William Lane had a career ending fall shortly before this race and she was ridden by American jockey Danny Maher who believed she was not a stayer. The BEofBFR notes the defeat was received with incredulity by the English racing public who refused to believe their heroine had been defeated fairly and squarely.                                      
An article in the Leader (Melbourne, Vic Saturday 31 December 1904 p 15) refers to a later match race between Presto II and another French horse at Maisons Lafitte and concludes that on heavy ground something even better than Pretty Polly would have been required to beat him at Longchamp.

*** The Times notes this time equals the Derby record yet when she won this race the previous year she set a course record of 2.33.8 a time three seconds faster.  I note that The Times usually recorded the winning margin as so many lengths 'in a canter' so she was rarely extended in most of her wins.  Apart from being beaten in heavy ground in Paris which was thought not to suit her the only time she was beaten in England she was beaten in course record time.

To calculate worldwide earnings her total Hong Kong earnings of HKD 9,500,000 have been allocated as follows:  HKD 8,000,000 has been allocated to her win and HKD 1,500,000 allocated to her third place (both races carried total prizemoney of HKD 14,000,000).  This split is, subject to rounding, consistent with the racingpost GBP amounts.                                        
 I do do not have an accurate break down of HKD win and place figures for both starts in Hong Kong however any error, if any, is likely to be very small.  Modelling suggests any allocation error up to +or-HKD 50,000 will effect earnings by no more than +or-USD 1.00 and +or-GBP 112.00.

Triptych (USA) 1982                                       
Bay mare                                       
Riverman (USA) 1969 (Never Bend (USA) 1960) - Trillion (USA) 1974 (Hail to Reason (USA) 1958)                                       
Countries raced: France, Ireland, Great Britain, Canada, USA, Japan                                       
41 starts, 14 wins (9 x G1), 5 seconds, 11 thirds.  Win % 34.1, Place % 73.2.                                         
At wikipedia.org/wiki/Triptych_(horse) it states 41 starts, 14 wins, 19 seconds, 8 thirds so placings are clearly wrong.                                        
Triptych started 15 times in races of 2400m+ for 3 wins (2 x G1), 1 second and 6 thirds.  She had 26 starts at 2112m or less for 11 wins (7 x G1).                                       
France earnings in French francs (FRF)   FRF 2,959,000                                    
Ireland earnings in Irish pounds (IEP)   IEP 455,048.40                                    
England earnings in British pounds (GBP)^   GBP 687,930.07                                     
Canada earnings in Canadian dollars (CAD)    CAD 66,000.00                                    
United States earnings in USD   USD 170,000                                    
Japan earnings in Japanase yen (JPY)   JPY 29,079,800                                    
^ I have found win and place prizemoney for all races except for her second and third places in the King George VI and Queen Elizabeth Diamond Stakes of 1986 and 1987.  I have taken the france-galop euro win prize and the GBP win prize to work out a notional euro to GBP exchange rate and applied that rate to the france-galop euro place prize to work out her GBP place money for those races.  I tested the methodology on known results and it seems to be accurate within a few pounds so unless there is a typo somewhere the GBP earnings will only be out by a few pounds at most.                                         
Worldwide earnings in United States dollars (USD)*   USD 2,557,387.84                                    
Worldwide earnings in United Kingdom pounds (GBP)*   GBP 1,635,713.82                                    
Worldwide earnings in Australian dollars (AUD)*   AUD 3,632,293.28                                    
Worldwide earnings in French francs (FRF)*   FRF 16,689,216                                    
Worldwide earnings in Japanese yen (JPY)*   JPY 397,049,943                                    
* Based on Reserve Bank of Australia (rba.gov.au.statistics/…) daily exchange rates as published for the date of the race or the previous trading day if the date falls on a non-trading day except for the conversion of Irish pounds which is the average of the spot pound close rate for IEP to GBP published in the Financial Times (London) on the race date, if a trading day, or the immediately proceeding trading day, as the RBA did not publish an IEP to AUD rate at that time.  The GBP equivalent sum to the IEP amount is the converted to other currencies using RBA rates.                                       
I have calculated Triptych's notional euro mearnings as EUR 2,544,255 (FRF 16,689,216 /6.55957) which is close to france-galop's notional euro earnings of EUR 2,573,822.                                       
The Times (London) of 19 October 1987 states that after her Champion Stakes win on 17 October 1987 Triptych became the leading European trained money winner winning over GBP 1.3 million.  I have calculated her career earnings after that win as GBP 1,302,721.53 which includes USD 30,000 (GBP 21,331.78) won in the USA. The Times seems to have ignored All Along (FR) 1979 who won over GBP 2,000,000 and she was trained by Patrick Biancone who trained Triptych for most of her career.  Triptych had earned more in Europe than All Along and any other horse before her and perhaps this is the point The Times was making to give the The Times writer Michael Seely the benefit of the doubt.                                         
As both Michael Seely of The Times and myself agree that Triptych had won more than GBP 1.3 million after her win in the Champion Stakes on 17 October 1987 I don't think there is any doubt that both wikipedia and equibase earnings figures are 'up the creek'.                                       
 'pedigreequery.com' has her career earnings as $1,873,781 in UK only. Assuming this is a reference to USD my USD total for UK earnings is USD 1,077,810.98.  Assuming the Republic of Ireland is still part of the UK then my combined British and Irish earnings in USD is USD 1,675,631.88. If I include France so that it covers all European earnings the total is over USD 2,100,000.

Sacred Kingdom (AUS) 2003 (late Jumbo Star)                                       
Bay gelding                                       
Encosta De Lago (AUS) 1993 (Fairy King (USA) 1982) - Courtroom Sweetie (AUS) 1992 (Zeditave (AUS) 1985)                                       
Countries raced: Hong Kong, Singapore, UK                                       
36 starts, 15 wins (2 x G1 and 3 x 'local' G1), 7 seconds, 2 thirds.  Win % 47.2, Place % 72.2.                                        
Three of the group 1 wins were designated as a 'local' group 1 so have not been counted as a group 1 win. In the race record below the local group 1 wins are designated as 'SING G1' or 'HK G1' as is relevant.                                        
Where hkjc.com labelled a race a 'G1' and 'racingpost' labelled the same race a 'Local Group 1' the hkjc.com designation has been preferred as correct.                                       
Estimated Hong Kong earnings in Hong Kong dollars (HKD)   HKD 42,407,900   Starts 33: 14-7-2-10                                 
Estimated Singapore earnings in Singapore dollars (SGD)   SGD 580,000.00   Starts 2: 1-0-0-1                                 
United Kingdom earnings in British pounds (GBP)   GBP 13,194.45   Starts 1: 0-0-0-1                                 
Worldwide earnings estimates                                       
Worldwide earnings in Hong Kong dollars (HKD)*   HKD 45,641,904                                    
Worldwide earnings in Japanese yen (JPY)*   JPY 575,310,054                                    
Worldwide earnings in Australian dollars (AUD)*   AUD 6,653,857.18                                    
Worldwide earnings in British pounds (GBP)*   GBP 3,385,788.04                                    
Worldwide earnings in United States dollars (USD)*   USD 5,870,094.90                                    
Worldwide earnings in euros (EUR)*   EUR 4,156,317.19                                    
* A foreign currency amount is first converted into AUD using Reserve Bank of Australia Daily Indicative Rates for the day of the race (or the previous day if the race date is not a trading day) before converting that amount into another foreign currency.                                       
Checked the Financial Times (London) HKD to GBP rate against the implied racingpost HKD to GBP exchange rate and the implied Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) HKD to GBP exchange rate for some GBP differences between my race earnings and the racingpost earnings that were greater than 5%. The Financial Times exchange rates were very close to the implied RBA rates suggesting that racingpost did not pick up significant changes in exchange rates in some instances.                                          
For example on 13 Dec 2009 Sacred Kingdom won the Cathay Pacific Hong Kong Sprint earning HKD 6,840,000 which racingpost has converted to GBP 614,004.00 or an implied HKD to GBP exchange rate of  HKD 11.14 to GBP 1.00.  Using the Financial Times HKD to GBP rate of HKD 12.5809 to GBP 1.00 the earnings fall to GBP 543,681.29 which is close to the RBA implied exchange (cross) rate of HKD 12.6442 to GBP 1.00 (or GBP 540,961.40) It follows there is an overstatement error by racingpost of over GBP 70,000.                                       
 'racingpost' almost certainly shows the wrong GBP earnings for all money earners for the Cathay Pacific Jockey Club Sprint run 21 November 2010 when compared with the total HKD prizemoney of that race and the previous race contested by Sacred Kingdom.                                         
 'hkjc.com' has worldwide earnings of HKD 45,831,144 which is very close to my figure of HKD 45,641,904 which is a minor miracle given the paucity of earnings information on the 'hkjc.com' and the Singapore Turf Club websites.                                       
If any reader has better earnings information please let me know.
