Field chases Questing in Travers
SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. - The winner of the Kentucky Derby and Preakness is retired in Japan. The runner-up in the first two American Classics for 3-year-olds, having accomplished little more, is retired and awaiting transport to Kentucky, where the Belmont Stakes winner is also at leisure until the breeding season begins in February.
At the moment, Questing is the only 3-year-old that matters, the standard by which the others are measured.
The last Kentucky Derby winner with a productive racing career beyond age three was Funny Cide, a gelding, who won the Kentucky Derby and Preakness in 2003.
