Thanks Catalina, and thanks wooley for posting about him. Several years ago (probably more than several, now) I asked Rick Violette about MFW as he was a favorite of mine, too. At the time I think he said that his sister was taking care of him in Maryland. Glad to see he's still doing well. Ran a great race in the Man O' War years ago.
