Racing careerEdit

Not very sound as a two-year-old, Mr. Consistency won just once in eleven starts. At age three his only significant win came in the California Derby at Golden Gate Fields [2] and at age four he had little success. Health problems led his owner to get out of horse racing and Mr. Consistency was purchased by Mrs. Ann Peppers at the Kerr Stable dispersal on August 27, 1962. [3]

At age five Mr. Consistency began to develop as a top runner, winning the Del Mar Handicap and running second or third in other top races for older horses. At age six, he had an outstanding year and best of his career, earning wins in the Santa Anita Handicap, San Juan Capistrano Handicap, San Marcos Handicap and the Arcadia Handicap
