After having tossed the idea around with some others on the board, I thought it might be an interesting idea to dedicate a
thread to the old timers still racing out there - the 9, 10 and up gang. A place to consolidate some information.
Most all of us have, or have had, a favorite old war horse that we have followed from time to time, and this can be a place to
discuss them - to list occasional race entries and results, to seek out those who become missing in action, and to hopefully see
them into healthy and happy retirements. Also, a place to keep an eye on those that end up in dangerous situations, and perhaps
find a way to help them through. I realize that we have the "older horses" thread, but that seems more geared to the well known
racers and not so much the "blue collar" class that deserve some attention as well.
The oldest racer in my VS is 15yo Star of Rome, truly a war horse at 136 - 15-20-28! Almost a quarter million in earnings to show
Who are some of your favorite old-timers?
