Physical ailments had always plagued Corinthian, but when he was right he was one tough miler. On Oct. 26, 2007 he was right, as jockey Kent Desormeaux guided the chestnut son of Pulpit to a convincing 6 1/2-length victory in the first-ever running of the Breeders’ Cup Dirt Mile over a sloppy track at Monmouth Park.

After suffering a hairline pastern bone fracture following his disqualification from victory in the 2005 Fountain of Youth, inconsistency plagued the Jimmy Jerkens-trained miler. He later experienced a problematic skin condition that set back training, but in 2007 he returned to promise by winning the Grade 1 Metropolitan Handicap at Belmont Park. Also a winner of the 2007 Gulfstream Park Handicap, the Centennial Farms star was retired to stud at Gainesway Farm and has become a successful sire.
