Bio

Bold ’n Determined was a precocious 2-year-old, winning all four of her starts as a juvenile in 1979, but that was only the beginning for this standout as she won from coast to coast as a sophomore the following year and proved to be an excellent handicapper as a 4-year-old.

 

A daughter of Bold and Brave out of the Determine mare Pidi, Bold ’n Determine was campaigned by Saron Stable and trained by Neil Drysdale. As a 2-year-old, Bold ’n Determine won her debut in the spring of 1979 at Hollywood Park. She added a victory in the Oak Leaf Stakes and finished her season undefeated at 4-0-0 with earnings of $108,240.

 

At 3, Bold ’n Determined won six Grade 1 races, including two-thirds of the New York Filly Triple Crown: the Acorn Stakes at a mile and the Coaching Club American Oaks at 1½ miles. She also won the Kentucky Oaks, Fantasy Stakes, Santa Susana Stakes and Spinster Stakes. In a thrilling running of the Maskette Stakes, Bold ’n Determined defeated Kentucky Derby winner Genuine Risk by a nose. Her overall record as a 3-year-old was 9-1-0 from 12 starts with earnings of $643,303.

 

Returning to the races as a 4-year-old in 1981, Bold ’n Determined added victories in the Bewitch Stakes and Apple Blossom Handicap before ankle trouble forced her retirement with a career mark of 16-2-0 from 20 starts and earnings of $949,599.

 

Bold ’n Determined died in 1997 at the age of 20 at Gainsborough Farm near Lexington, Ky.
