Champion Paradise Creek was one of the top grass horses of his generation. The versatile performer was quick enough to compete with the elite milers of his time but had the stamina to win the nation’s top route races. He started off his career for future Hall of Fame trainer Bill Mott with a maiden score as a juvenile at Belmont Park. Belmont was also where he hit the reboot button, returning from a ten-month layoff to win his first two sophomore starts. Perhaps the most outstanding race of his career came in the 1994 G1 Manhattan. Pat Day was aboard for a tour de force 6 ¾ length victory. The course record of 1:57.79 for 1 ¼ miles still stands today.
