DISTINGUISHED BID was foaled in Maryland but travelled far and wide. Eventually owned by Yuliya and Dr. Kendall Hansen, the son of Baederwood landed in the barn of Art Zeis at Ellis Park. Fate would be on DISTINGUISHED BID's side when he was sent by his owners to California in the summer of 1995 with trainer Jenine Sahadi, keeping him from danger when Zeis's barn burned to the ground that July. DISTINGUISHED BID returned to Zeis's care and lifted everyone's spirits by capturing the Indy Mile Stakes, one of the first added-money events offered at Hoosier Park. He would go on to win or place in half of his 40 lifetime starts, earning $106,645.
