"The horse that time forgot"

This is an interesting story:

Gallant Fox, second of 11 horses to sweep the Triple Crown, is still strangely remembered for one of the few races he lost 75 years ago, to the longshot Jim Dandy in the Travers at Saratoga.

Jim Dandy was an ordinary horse — he raced until he was 12, winning seven of 141 starts — but Saratoga has been running a race in his name since 1964, solely because in 1930 he defeated Gallant Fox about nine weeks after Belair Stud's brilliant colt had won the Belmont Stakes to sweep the Triple Crown.
