Fast forward to Dec 31, 2005

It’s the end of another season of International racing. The “sport of kings” is truly an International sport and Canada’s contribution to the sport’s royalty continues in the bloodline of our little “Dancer”.

Here are the results of some of the Classic Thoroughbred races from every continent on our globe. These races are either rich in history or prize money or both. England’s St Leger stakes is the oldest dating back to 1776. In many cases these events are huge National celebrations attracting hundreds of thousands of people live and millions via television or the Internet.

Ironically, Canada’s Queens Plate (not listed here) could only claim the third place finisher Gold Strike as a descendant of our Canadian hero.
