Best Locally Owned Racehorse That Flies
We are not talking $5,000 claimers here -- the manes-and-tails that run at Arapahoe Park. Reraise, majority-owned by Denver rock promoter (and longtime student of the breed) Barry Fey, is what racetrack people call a "freak" -- an animal that regularly runs faster than anyone thinks possible. In November 1998, Reraise beat the best sprinters in the world in the top-of-the-line Breeders Cup Sprint at Churchill Downs and won the prestigious Eclipse Award for sprinter of the year. Despite a long convalescence from minor injuries, which could make for an uncertain 2001 schedule, the speedster is still considered one of the top ten turf sprinters. Giddyap.
