Maid At Arms (foaled 1922 in Kentucky) was an American Champion Thoroughbred filly racehorse. Her sire was the century's best race horse, Man O' War, a son of three-time Leading sire in North America Fair Play. Her dam was Trasher, a daughter of Trap Rock. [1] Maid At Arms will best be remembered for her easy victory in the seventh running of the Black-Eyed Susan Stakes on May 4, 1925.


Racing Career

Maid At Arms had a very brief racing career (racing 17 times in twelve months) but in that one year she proved to be a champion winning year end honors as American Champion Three-Year-Old Filly for 1925. Maid At Arms did break her maiden at the end of 1924 and in early February, early March and late March of 1925 she won three separate allowance races. In May of that year her owner Samuel Riddle and her trainer George Conway decided to run Maid At Arms in the de facto second jewel of the filly triple crown, the Black-Eyed Susan Stakes (it was called the Pimlico Oaks at the time). In that race she faced a field of eight of the best fillies that the country had to offer. Maid at Arms captured the seventh running of the $7,500 Black-Eyed Susan Stakes, beating the seven other three year-old fillies with ease over the course of a mile and a sixteenth. Under 113 pounds and with jockey Albert Johnson in the saddle, the filly ran the distance in 1:46 flat over a fast track winning by four lengths. Stakes winning fillies Revoke and Primrose ran good enough to capture second and third place.

In July 1925 Maid At Arms took a gamble and raced in open company against the males in the Maryland Handicap at Laurel Park Racecourse and won the mile and one sixteenth race. Late in August of 1925, Maid At Arms shipped up to Saratoga Race Course and won the historic Alabama Stakes. In September she took on the boys again and placed a strong second in the Jerome Handicap against one of the fillies she beat in the Black-Eyed Susan Stakes, Primrose.
