When Thirty Slews nipped the filly Meafara at the wire to win the 1992 Breeders' Cup Sprint, it was the start of something big for trainer Bob Baffert. Thirty Slews was the first Thoroughbred Baffert bought at a yearling sale, and the colt gave him his first Breeders' Cup and his first Grade 1 victory in the Sprint.

Baffert began his career with quarter horses, training two champions before switching to the Thoroughbred game in 1991. The young and brash trainer told anyone who would listen that year, that his colt was one of the top sprinters in the nation, but bettors virtually dismissed his chances at 19-to-1 odds.

Thirty Slews returned to the Breeders' Cup Sprint in 1993, but finished fourth.
