How Will History Affect Rebel Runners?

Throughout the town, paintings and photographs of racehorses are to be found on various signs and advertisements.

II) in March, and the Arkansas Derby (gr. I) in April. In recent years, this three-race sequence has produced some of the most talented horses in the nation. The Rebel Stakes alone has produced six Eclipse Award winners, including one Horse of the Year and four Champion Three-Year-Olds, in the past ten years. . ."
