My answer is Forego- Forego had extraordinary talent, which in my opinion made him one of the great horses of all time. His versatility was clearly demonstrated with wins from 7 furlongs to the 2 mile Jockey Club Gold Cup. (Forego in a period of 6 weeks won the mile and a half Woodward, the 7 furlong Vosburgh, and the 2mile Jockey Club Gold Cup as stated). Owing to his wins, he was frequently handicapped to carry more than 130 pounds (59 kg), and even so often won. In 57 starts, Forego had 34 wins, 9 seconds and 7 thirds. He registered 24 stakes victories including 14 Grade 1 wins. His lifetime earnings amounted to $1,938,957.
