Quest Star Gets Through for Hall of Fame Upset

In Monday's National Museum of Racing Hall of Fame Handicap (gr. II), the "smart money" was on Claiborne Farm homebred Patrol, seeking his fourth consecutive victory after finishing third in his career debut.

Still Budding

Grover "Bud" Delp has made his own way in the Thoroughbred business. His path--from Maryland, to stardom, to the New Orleans-Chicago circuit, and back to Maryland--has led him to racing's pinnacle: the National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame in Saratoga Springs, N.Y.

Cigar Raised the Bar

It was Tuesday, April 2, 1996. A cool afternoon breeze whipped through the Belmont Park backstretch. There was little activity at one o'clock on a dark day, so no one was around to notice a lone horse being led down Secretariat Ave. to barn 25.

Serena's Song: Winning Tune

It is small wonder too that Serena's Song was tabbed for induction into the National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame this year as top contemporary female. She was brilliant and she was hickory, starting 38 times in a 30-month racing career. It's one thing to race often, it's another to capture 17 graded stakes and hit the board in another 14. She faced the best in her division, butted heads with the boys, and never took a backward step.

Noor's Four Over Citation

Noor beat Calumet Farm's mighty Citation four consecutive times. That alone should be enough to earn a horse entry in the National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame.

Jack Westrope: Quiet Little Man

To those who knew Jack Westrope best, his election to the National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame is an overdue justice, a final, fitting tribute bestowed on one of the finest the game has ever seen.
