1998 Three year-old Champion and closest almost winner of the Triple Crown, Real Quiet, passed this previous Monday after a fall in his paddock.
Winner of 6 races. Five of which included the Hollywood Futurity in '97, The Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes in '98 (losing the Belmont by barely a nose) and the Hollywood Gold Cup and Pimlico Special in '99.
He was an amazing horse and good stallion.
RIP Real Quiet, the racing world will miss your power.
