Beat the Wheel Passes

Beat The Wheel (US) passed yesterday as a result of kidney failure at Hanover Shoe Farms.  Quite honestly, most fans probably don't recall the nineteen year old mare but she was pretty impressive in her time.  Not only was she a world record holder at the Meadowlands for her 1:51.4 mile back in 1994, she beat the prominent stallion Pine Chip, winner of the Stanley Dancer Memorial, Colonial Trot, Kentucky Futurity, American-National, the Transylvania, Matron Stakes, World Trotting Derby, Breeders Crown, Dickerson Cup at three and at four, he won the Breeders Crown and the Nat Ray.  In other words, the lady was a champ.
