I would say Nihilator from years gone by and currently, its Golden "Shower" Receiver.

No particular reason why.

I owned a cheaper horse by the name of Brylan Wonder who won the amatuer driving championship 3 times with Brad Rathbone in the bike !
Probably won another 30 races and was a beautiful animal !!!
When I retired him, He was given to a female outrider who promised to take good care for him !!!
He was found dead 2 months later !!
I'll never forgive that woman !!!
 RIP Brylan !

Mr. Karamia was killed in the fire at Capital Hill Farm. Do you know if it was an insurance job or just a terrible horror ?

I am glad to hear that. It was a tragedy either way but I didn't want to hear it was done on purpose. I never knew, thanks.

I knew the kid that died in that fire. They called him Monster, he was a really nice kid. Maybe 18 years old.

Not sure of my favorite but Somebeachsomewhere was the last champion i saw that i truly believed was not a chem horse and his progeny are proving that theory it appears. One of the best, wish he raced another year.

Pretty Direct was a dead game mare, even with "Ole Insko" driving. Often beat the boys and dominated the girls in Chicago. And Hothead, I remember taking the bus from backstretch to paddock at Hawthorn one of the nights he was running and I was just looking down the stretch as we made the turn and look out here was Mike Borys going across the front of the bus and JUST missed getting clobbered on Hothead. It was crazy. He won that night I think nw of 2 or3. Just another great horse with an infamous race with Forrest Skipper, never forget it!
