Restricted to 3-year-olds, the Curlin was first run in 2009 and named after the two-time Horse of the Year who won the 2008 Grade 1 Woodward at Saratoga. Trained by Steve Asmussen for the late Jess Jackson, Curlin won the 2007 Preakness and the 2007 Breeders’ Cup Classic as a 3-year-old, and retired at the conclusion of his 4-year-old campaign as the first horse to break the $10 million mark in earnings, with $10,501,800.
In 2013, Transparent crossed the wire first but was disqualified and placed fifth for interference near the quarter-pole.
