Help with name

This was probably in the 90s, there was a mare who won one turf stakes race at Saratoga for like 4-5 years in a row. They had run a stakes in her name a few years however it doesn't look like it was ran this year. I thought if I looked up the Saratoga stakes schedule I could find her name. I can't remember her name and don't really have time right now to put into looking but I wanted to post so I didn't forget. I *think* her name started with Irish?

For some reason I thought Irish O'Brien but that isn't her but my mind works in weird ways so I thought I'd post that in case it gives someone a clue.

yes no maybe?

Thank you! That is her. Irish O'Brien kind of made sense since her trainer was Leo O'Brien. lol

i found it in a last-ditch google search - something like repeat saratoga stakes winners, or something. and a wiki page for horses that have won multiple running of a race popped up (there's some crazy repeats out there!);

Irish O'Brien ran on the west coast. She was a down the hill specialist at Santa Anita.

Yeah I remember her name from her son, Blaze O'Brien.
