Inside Information took one bad step to an undefeated season in 1995 on her way to an authoritative score in the Distaff. She stumbled badly at the start of the Grade 1 Ballerina and had to settle for second, coming from last in the field. Trainer Shug McGaughey had the task of an amazing balancing act that season keeping Inside Information away from her 1994 champion stablemate Heavenly Prize. Both fillies were in the starting gate on Breeders’ Cup day alongside eventual 1995 3-Year-Old Champion Serena’s Song.
On the muddy Belmont Park track, Inside Information broke from her inside post and jockey Mike Smith did not challenge the early pacesetters. When he did let her go she responded with amazing acceleration and while urging her on with his hands, the Ogden Mills Phips homebred splashed her way to a 13 1/2 romp over Heavenly Prize and Lakeway.
