BackgroundEdit

The Parader was a bay horse bred by the Belle Meade Stud of Nashville, Tennessee. He was sired by Longstreet, the leading American racehorse of 1891[1] out of a mare named Pretence.[2] He was owned by Richard T. Wilson, Jr., President of the Saratoga Race Course.

Racing careerEdit

In the Preakness, The Parader was given an indifferent ride, but produced a strong finish to win easily.[3] The Parader also won the Withers Stakes and the Lawrence Realization Stakes. His racing career ended in 1902 due to severe laminitis.[4] He was euthanized in August 1902 due to worsening lameness.[5]
