Einstein (right and below) relaxes at Pimlico on May 17, 2007, two days before competing on the turf in the Dixie Stakes.
Einstein lost his rider when he tried to avoid the fallen Mending Fences approaching the far turn in the Dixie Stakes, and did not finish the race.

Einstein, with Robby Albarado, wins the 22nd running of the Woodford Reserve Turf Classic at Churchill Downs, May 3, 2008. Out of Control (left), Garrett Gomez up, was 2nd. In 2009 Einstein again won the Woodford, as well as the Santa Anita Handicap.
The Brazilian-bred Einstein (seen here with trainer Helen Pitts in 2007) raced for five years, beginning when he was three, and had wins on every type of track: dirt, turf and artificial surface. He was retired to stud duty at Adena Springs in Paris, Kentucky in January 2010.
