I've been following this boy and his story ...

For those who don't know ... He didn't start his racing career until age 9 ... And actually broke his maiden at the Humboldt County Fair in Ferndale last out ... Such a cool story ... I didn't expect to ever see him live and found myself hoping someone could get a pic of him and post it here ...

Well ... Lo and behold! I looked at the entries for this Sunday at Fairplex and they've shipped him down here! I'm SOOOOO excited! Can't wait to see him in person! :D

IMHO ... This guy is such a GREAT story!

Honker's Holiday finished seventh. Hopefully he'll do better his next time out.

Yeah ... he basically just started 7 back and just stayed there the whole time. Oh well ... I enjoyed seeing him anyway and definitely look forward to his next race. :)

If anyone, besides me, is interested ... Here's a pic of the old fella ... He's a nice looking kid!

Does he have a short tail, or is it the way the pic is?
