Owned by Kay Jeffords, Lonesome Glory is the only American steeplechase horse to win five Eclipse Awards (1992, 1993, 1995, 1997 and 1999) and also the only American jumper to earn more than $1 million. Lonesome Glory won 19 jump races (17 in the U.S. and two in England) from 35 starts and retired with earnings of $1,352,868. His five championships are surpassed only byFlatterer among steeplechasers, and put him on par with Kelso's run of five Horse of the Year titles or Forego's string of four consecutive older male championships. Since the Eclipse Awards were created in 1971, only four other horses have won five or more (of any type). The others were Forego, John Henry, Affirmed and Secretariat. Major victories came in North America's most storied races, and included three Colonial Cups, two Carolina Cups, the Temple Gwathmey, the Hard Scuffle, the Royal Chase, the Iroquois, the New York Turf Writers Cup, the A.P. Smithwick Memorial and the Breeders' Cup Steeplechase.
Pet was sired by *Paranoide (Arg), Argentine Champion race horse, who was, at the time of his importation to the USA, the fastest horse in the world on dirt and turf at several distances. Originally imported to the USA and standing at Harris Farm in California, Paranoide is still alive, in North Dakota, healthy and siring foals at the grand age of 22!
All the foals of this wonderful mare have her incredible athletic ability, intelligence, rugged soundness, fun coloration and people-loving personality. The "Pet Kids" stand out in any crowd.
