I think only us older then dirty old guys that knew Don and know Bob can really appreciate this story. I will also bet every word of it is as it happened.

That is how Busse and Farrington got to be National driving Champs, by raising,breeding, buying,  claiming, and owning part or all of most of the horses they drove. A far cry from today's no investment catch driver.

    Busse was the peoples choice and a smart and clever horsemen.

    Farrington  head shake all he had was alot of money backing him. I remember when Farrington  came to Bay Meadows and they all made a big ta-do about how great he was.  He got his head handed to him on a platter and never came back again.

 
    Don Busse at the time was what harness racing represented. I will always have fond memories of the the great Don Busse.  thumbs up  I am glad I was around to see him.
