Nan Patrick...thats pretty good, but can you name the dam?  And, who trained and drove her?


For the life of me, I can not think of her name. But it was Rick schaut who drove and trained her.

All you need to do is "go to" (pun) the USTA site.
Click on Name/Tatoo near the page top.

copy or type in Nan Patrick and you get this:

It was Prescious Lynette and Rick Schaut was the trainer/driver.  Nice mare.  Fast off the gate.  He had quite a few nice horses at that time.

I remember that mare now, and I just did see Rick at the last Delaware Sale I went to.

Yes he did and he has some pretty nice horses right now also. Precious Lynette was the first mare I ever seen Rick train. Back then it was stud row. I don't even think he had a gelding in the barn.

Debra Schaut, the cute little blonde.
Not even Mike's boots could keep her attached to him.

That was his sister Donna, she was married to Paul Shepard. Remember she ended up doing PR in Chicago for a while before going on to the Meadows?

Yeah Trish was the sister.  The wife worked like a dog.  Always in the barn and in the paddock at night.  How could you not know her.  Probably why they got divorced.

Can't believe I have missed this thread until now! Who was the QCD driver who went down twice in 1 day? Once at a county fair in Knoxville, IL and then again that night at QCD. Also, anybody remember the blacksmith, Lee Monroe? Very entertaining guy. Does anyone know if he's still doing OK? Also, what horse did Don Brown from Henry have that used to go to the half in about 56 and then home in about 1:06. He did hang on and win a few in a row in the 90's.

Your answer of Simmons is correct and do you know how Lee is doing? Haven't seen him in many moons.

Lee shoe'd for us as recently as 2003.  Talked to his wife last year and he was doing well and just shoeing a few pleasure horses, no racehorses.  Good guy who knows his stuff!

Does anybody remember a guy who raced around a few years in the early 80"s at the fairs and I think a few times at QCD? He was from New Zealand, I think, and one odd duck. Was his name was Clyde Blackwell or something? I was just curious as to whatever became of him. I do not remember Stanley Williams. Whatever became of Rick Prevost?

Rick Prevost came from near Green Bay, WI. Not far from Dave Magee.
I believe Rick is out of the business and back in Wi.
Rick's last drive was in 1997 at Norway MI. A county fair on the WI. MI. northern boarder.
