She dug down, fought back and refused to lose”
Biographical information courtesy of Old Friends

It was a sweltering, humid day at Saratoga. Hidden Lake, trying for her third stakes win, lost the lead with 1/16 of a mile to go. She dug down, fought back and refused to lose. Her jockey, Richard Migliore, summed up her greatness of spirit: “She reached down and found something that wasn't there.” That's what champions do.

Bred by Charles Nuckols, Jr. and sons, and raced by Robert Clay and Tracy Farmer, in 1997 she reeled off 4 graded stakes victories in a row, the Shuvee (G2), the Hempstead (G1), the Go For Wand (G1) and the Beldame (G1), resulting in earnings of $947,459 and the 1997 Eclipse Award for Older Female Champion. She was a true New York girl. Her West Coast trainer, Walter Greenman, felt that the California tracks were stinging her feet and that she would do better on the East Coast, so she was sent to trainer John Kimmel. That's when she really came into her own.

After racing, she spent several years as a broodmare, but after increasing difficulty carrying foals to term, she was donated to Old Friends by owner Robert S. Evans. Thanks to his generosity, the regal Hidden Lake now holds audiences for her many adoring fans.
