8/14 Throwback Thoroughbred: Holy Bull

His career may have been short lived, but Holy Bull’s accomplishments during that time are worth noting.

Holy Bull was undefeated at 2-years old. At three, he was a dominate horse winning eight out of 10 starts, including five Grade 1 victories.

In fact, one of those Grade 1 races took place at the Saratoga Race Course in the 1994 Travers Stakes.

Holy Bull came away that season as Horse of the Year. He was also named Champion 3-Year Old.

Less than 10 years later, he was inducted into the Hall of Fame.
