EQUUS - - Conformati­on Insights -

1964 (by Sword Dancer out of Ker­ala by My Babu, go­ing back to Herod in tail-fe­male). Closely re­lated to Ci­ta­tion, Da­m­as­cus is rem­i­nis­cent of him both con­for­ma­tion­ally and in the fact that he too had a highly suc­cess­ful race ca­reer, earn­ing more than $1 mil­lion. He won 21 of 32 ca­reer starts in­clud­ing the Preak­ness and Bel­mont Stakes. Re­tired to stud at age 4 af­ter bow­ing a ten­don, he did bet­ter than Ci­ta­tion at stud, sir­ing 71 stakes win­ners and many cham­pion-pro­duc­ing mares.
