I'm STILL a self confessing, self professing know-it-all, or so I think!

Goldikova and Miesque!!

Absolutely loved this horse – Miesque!! She blew away the competition in 1987 in The Breeder’s Cup Mile, and for good measure came back in ’88 and did it again!! First back to back winner. Fast forward 21 years, Goldikova wins the exact race in 2008 for the first time, and a year later for the second! Another back to back performance. What makes this interesting? Both are fillies(mares) beating up on the boys. Both are considered to best of all time in their division, both have 12 wins(as I publish this post)… and both share another common thread … Miesque’s jockey way back in the day was Freddy Head who now is Goldikova’s trainer!! Talk about a motherfucking coinkidink!!
