FAIR AND SQUARE, The Real Champ By NIHAWMA

Nobody can match FAIR AND SQUARE credentials

So much has been said about the sprint record of Ariba King as the fastest in 900 meters in Philippine horse racing, the epic duel between Empire King and Cover Girl, the previous rivalry between Real Spicy and Speed Advantage, the upset win of Bulldozer against the star studded line up of the Presidential Gold Cup that includes Real Top and Strong Material and the impressive performance of Ibarra and Don Enrico.

But there stands to be the greatest and the most impressive super horses the Philippines ever got and that is none other than
FAIR AND SQUARE,

We all know that the superhorse is owned by C & H Enterprises (Mamon family) but do you know that his dam by the name of Fair Sea, an imported horse was least liked by some of the owners before Fair and Square was foaled.

FAIR AND SQUARE was a Triple Crown champion in 1981. He was the first back to back champion in the Presidential Gold Cup (1981 & 1982). He was retired in 1983. Fair and Square has also sired two previous Presidential Gold Cup champions, SUN DANCER (1989 and 1990) and FAIR START (1993). Sun Dancer was the second horse to duplicate the same feat of FAIR AND SQUARE by winning back to back the Presidential Gold Cup in1989 & 1990.

Fair and Square has also produced a lot of champions. They are all veteran stakes campaigner and they are always in the money namely EXPARTE, FAIR DEAL, FAIR LEAD, FAIR MAIDEN, FAIR NATIVE and FAIR START.

WESTBOUND ,winner of seven races in 11 starts before and the progeny of US-bred sire Hezagonwest out of Fair Maiden should have been the first grandson of Fair and Square to win the triple crown but it was spoiled by Success Story in the 3rd leg.of the Triple Crown in 2003.

Fair Deal had produced Fair Go (owned by Yeng Guiao) and Amazing Red. While Fair Lead had produced Vigor, Diligence (a winner in numerous regular races) and sprinter Stallone who beat Moab in a sprint race.

Here are the other sires of Fair and Square namely All is Fair, Fair Challenge, Fair Chance, Fair Enough, Fair Game, Fair Leonor, Fair Skies and Fair Warning. All is Fair and Fair Skies has always been a winner in the regular race while Fair Challenge, Fair Leonor and Fair Warning won in a regular race as longshots.

In short, no other superhorses in the Philippines has duplicated and was able to match the impressive credentials of Fair and Square for having a grandsire who are champions in their own rights. Neither the great gallopers like NATIVE GIFT, PARIS MATCH, SKYWALKER, GYPSY GREY, RED ANNIE, SUN GOD and ILOCOS KING has match Fair and Square’s record when it comes to offsprings. Not even WIND BLOWN, REAL TOP or STRONG MATERIAL can match it.
