Raced a total of three times after being purchased as a two year old for 14
(that's a 1 followed by a 4) milliones dollares ( a little spanish lingo there ). Finished third twice and fourth once, earning 10 thousand, plus or minus.
Sold as a yearling for $430,000 and as a 2yo for 14 million.
Gotta love those "two year olds - in training" sales.
Will stand at stud in Lexington at Ashcroft Stud, the idiots who put up the 14 million.

Saw one of his starts as well Phil.
He looked to me as though his was an absolute lack of ability. Would have had trouble training him as a steeplechaser or a dressage horse.
Did see a tape of his "sprint" when he was paraded before he sold and he looked awesome. Ability came in a bottle that day.

As Roger Clemens would say:   "I think the horse MISREMBERED whether or not he said he received something in a bottle that day.
