Nobody
At least Nobody wasn't really a nobody. Earned a little cash in his day, and was not exactly a horrible racer.
I hope he is still around somewhere enjoying a long and happy retirement...

Re: MLB - 2013

The Pirates finally beat San Diego today 10-1. They have nine games left, three against the Cubs and six against Cincinnati. It sure is fun having the Bucs playing meaningful games at the end of the season. I sure would like to see the Pirates in the Series this year - maybe against my Tigers. I'll...

Re: Horrible Names For Horses

My reaction to the name has nothing to do with it being about horse meat. Actually I've never thought of it that way. It's just a terrible, bland name. And the ones you posted were not much better. Did they run out of unique name ideas? How do you look at a horse and go, "I'm gonna name that one Go...

Re: Wise Dan

Such a good boy. Now I can get a good night's sleep at this lousy rest stop we're at. One of my first thoughts as Wise Dan crossed the finish line was, "I'll bet Ballerina and Bill are happy today!" Me too. He is a shot in the arm with just the kind of medicine that this sport needs. If Mr. Fink an...

And another morning casualty at Belmont today - Maui Mark who last raced August 30, in Saginaw's final race. RIP, Maui Mark. RIP Maui Mark . Seems like I have been seeing his name on entry sheets forever. Aside from a handful of races, he was a West coaster. Passed around a few times in his career,...

Wow, that brings back some memories! He's been retired for a long time now, but he was a pretty decent racer in his day,
especially earlier in his career. I think his name helped attract more fans for him over the years...
