Witezarif won the Tevis Cup 100 Miles-One-Day Endurance Ride in 1970, 1971, 1972, 1973, 1975, and 1976. He was bred and owned by Hyannis Cattle Company (Nebraska) and owned by Pat & Donna Fitzgerald of Washoe County, Nevada after 1968. He was expertly ridden by Donna Fitzgerald. In addition to his 6 Tevis wins, Witezarif won the famous Virginia City Ride (and numerous other rides) many times. Three-time Haggin Cup winner Juliette Suhr declared that he flowed like water over rocks. He is generally regarded as the greatest endurance horse since modern endurance riding began with the first Tevis Cup Ride in 1955. Little Witezarif could, and did, beat all comers of all sizes. He was plain looking. Few noticed. It seems fitting that Witezarif lived to be 38 years old.
