Mc Hammer Lite Light $1,231,596

Mc Hammer Lite Light $1,231,596, During his fame Mc Hammer had everything, including a very prestigious race horse that he ran for three years. Lite had a famous mother named Majestic Light and was owned by Jack L.

Finey but at age 2 superstar Mc Hammer purchased her as part of his lavish spending. Of course a race horse can actually be a profitable business and Mc Hammer did make money from her with her race wins totalling $1,231,596.

Here is what Wikipedia says of her race career:

At age two, Lite Light raced at tracks in California where she won the Oak Leaf Stakes and the Sorrento Stakes and was second in theDel Mar Debutante Stakes and the Hollywood Starlet Stakes. In 1991, she blossomed into one of the top three-year-old fillies racing in the United States.

After winning several important Grade I stakes events on the West Coast and the Grade II Fantasy Stakes atOaklawn Park in Hot Springs, Arkansas, Lite Light went to Louisville, Kentucky where she won the Kentucky Oaks against some of the best fillies in the country.

Sent north to race in New York, in the 1⅛ mile Mother Goose Stakes Light Lite was up against Meadow Star whom she had lost to by a wide margin in the 1990 Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies.

In the Mother Goose, after the two ran head-to-head from the turn at the top of the homstretch, Meadow Star won by a “lip” in a photo finish that took the officials six minutes to adjudicate. The two fillies finished 15 ½ lengths in front of the rest of the field.

A month later, they met again in the Coaching Club American Oaks. Once again they pulled away from the field, going head-to-head at the top of the stretch. But this time Lite Light put on a powerful drive and won by seven lengths in stakes record time.
