I know it was a tricky question, I didn't know how to word it. Very glad you got the answer right!
This future Kentucky Derby winner nearly died in a fire when he was two years old. The fire, at a racetrack, killed 22 of his owner's horses, 21 of which were 2yos. Luckily he had been shipped to Churchill Downs with the stables Kentucky Derby entrants.
Edited to add: The colt was nicknamed, The Cosmetics Kid.
