1918 Exterminator

The name was enough to tell you he was considered among the greatest prior to the ascension of Man O' War. The year after he won the Kentucky Derby, Exterminator came to Havre de Grace for a showdown with the 1919 Derby winner Sir Barton in the prestigious Havre de Grace Handicap. Exterminator won the battle of the Derby champs, but they both lost the race.
