In 1908 on the Fourth of July, AI and Whisper had won their first race. It would be the first of many. Gold Dollar was owned by Tom Riley from South Dakota and had been winning races consistently in Lead, Deadwood and Spearfish.

Goflemtlons" "Only You" mile straight track in Sundance. As race time drew near, Dean Collins rode to the starting line on Whisper and Romey (}lover on Gold Dollar. From start to finish, the two horses did not disappoint the drewd. They ran neck in neck, each refusing to give in to the other. The track was slightly uphill and poslessed may deep ruts, but this did not seem to affect the horses or their riders. As Whisper and Gold Dollar neared the finish line, they were running shoulder to shoulder, and it appeared that the race would end in a Us. At the last minute, Whisper began to aSowly edge a little ahead of Gold Dollar and won the race by a noee. The cheers from the crowd could be heard throughout Crook County. A quote found in newspaper articles about this race states, '~oney talks, but on a day in 1911 on a race track in 8undance, a Gold Dollar couldn't be heard above a Whisper."
