A question was posed this morning by a renowned trainer as to which Minnesota-bred mare has the most career earnings.  He knew where the question and the eventual answer likely would go  and he was correct. A quick fact-checking mission found the numbers below. If there are errors, feel free to comment with corrections.

    Thanks for putting this lnfo on the blog. Most people who have been going to the races since the track reopened as Canterbury Park wouldn’t know Super Abound from Superman. He broke his maiden at CBY in the first start of his career as a 2 yr. old. It was the only time he won a race on the dirt. I was at Arlington the day he won the Grade I Secretariat. Guess who ran second, a horse named Unbridled, who he was coupled with in the wagering. Will we ever see another MN. bred win a Grade I ?????
