Favorite Trick

Favorite Trick was a champion racehorse who was named 1997 Horse of the Year as a two-year-old. He was the first juvenile to earn that honor since the immortal Secretariat in 1972. Comparisons between the two horses began almost immediately. Just as Secretariat had overwhelmed the competition back in the 1970s, so did Favorite Trick in his first racing season. Whereas Secretariat continued to dominate the opposition, Favorite Trick could not sustain his undefeated run, illustrated by a disappointing eighth place finish at the 1998 Kentucky Derby.

Favorite Trick was undefeated in eight starts (7 of which were stakes wins) the year he was named Horse of the Year. He raced through age 3 and retired with a dozen wins from 16 starts, and earnings of $1.7 million. Some of his wins include the Jim Dandy Stakes at Saratoga, Keeneland Breeders' Cup Mile Stakes, Hopeful Stakes, and his big win, a 5 1/2-length victory in the 1997 Breeders' Cup Juvenile at Hollywood Park.

Trained by Pat Byrne, the stallion eventually sired over 100 winners (16 stakes winners) from 168 starters whose total earnings are estimated to be as much as $8.4 million. His progeny include Magical Tricks, Disappearing Trick, Trick Again, Tricky Dust, Layton's Trick, Sum Trick, Sadler's Trick, Crafty Tricker, Ms. Trick or Treat, Tight Spin, Xtra Heart, Favorite One, Thames, Datrick, Yucatan, Almost Certain, Track Hero, French Ploy, Wagon Road, I'm a Goer, Second Coming, Oahu and Nike Favor.
