Wichita County Rumor Mills Got it Right!!! (CORRECTION)

Please note that my previous website was incomplete.  The new website I have posted should get you to the video, etc.  Sorry for any inconvenience that I may have caused anyone.

Every little town may not have it's own grocery story but more-than-likely, it has at least one gossip rumor mill.  Many of us have fallen prey to it at least once in our lives.  I know that I have.  LOL!!!  And in many cases, the rumors are at least partially, if not completely, W-R-O-N-G.  But if you heard the word that our local Jan Whitham and her family just won the Classic Breeder's Cup on Saturday, the rumor is factual.  As I watched the race, I found tears streaming down my face.  And..guess what...I wasn't the only one around here who felt the same pride.

The winner's name is Fort Larned.  He ran the 1 1/4 mile race in just 2.00.11 in this first showcase race that was televised on Prime Time TV.  He beat out Mucho Macho Man by a narrow 1/2 length.  What a race!!!

If you missed seeing it on TV or you just want to experience the thrill again,  please go to the following website to watch it now:

Congratulations to Mrs. Whitham and her family!!!  What an accomplishment!
