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!
