I saw a good mare named Antholena D (Jim King Jr??) mentioned in another thread and thought of some of the fine (but relatively obscure....or NOT so relatively obscure) horses from a few decades ago. You can add a name to this thread and maybe his driver, trainer or owner to help us remember.

How about:

Village Jackpot with Jack Parker, Jr?

Your turn.

Chief Crazy Legs-Norman Dauplaise

Chief Crazy Legs was fifteen in 1980 so I guess he’s a little bit removed from this window but he is a great example of the Metropolitan New York horses that were pre Meadowlands and better known for their toughness than their fast marks. He won a preliminary leg of the 1970 Fall Pacing Festival at RR for Ben Webster in a shade over two minutes, which was very fast on a half late in the year. Maida Million wound up winning the final for Eddie Cobb from the eight. Public Affair, who I don’t think ever won in two minutes, was second. Horses like Shore Will, Lucky Child, Claridge and Adios Waverly made that a special time period.

Sokys Atom became one heck of a broodmare sire in New Zealand. Auckland Reactor and Royal Cee Cee are both out of Sokys Atom mares.

When he won the Haughton as a two-year-old for Archie McNeil, it was the richest race ever at Roosevelt. He paid $45.

Fox Valley Redhot   Jim Crebs

arguably the best IL mare (both racing and breeding of my time).  Some better racing fillies/mares in the past 2 decades, but show me the production of their lines compared to FVredhot

How tall is Ben?  He never looked like he "fit".  Knees were too bent.  Of course I said Motor Mouth & Earl Cruise was a big guy.

How about some of these, Vegas:

Sonnetson - Dokey, Henri... Trained by Tommy Foster
Pastabyrd - Loosh
Herbars Bacchus - Herve (after a line of 888888 earned a Sports Eye comment "Stayed Bacchus"
Petite Evander - Ed Dunnigan
James B - Del Insko or as Jack would say "Delinsko" all one word
Bobbo - Norman Jones - Jack's favorite
Brets Triumph - Ted Taylor
Allen J Finkelson - Buddy, who Bert Lang named after a great racing man

Dolfan: I don't recall Ben Steall being very tall. Now, Austin Hope, that was a different story-how he managed to be on a bike, I will never know.

A New England shout-out to 17 YO Kim Crawford, piloting Rebel Aaron in Green Mountain FFA's against the Jimmy Doherty-driven Miami Beach, who would ship in from Foxboro, and usually get the better of the local lad. Four decades later, Kim, after a stint as Saratoga trackman, is back in the bike.

Off-topic, my Dad and I, living 11 miles from Yonkers, but preferring long-distance day trips to Green Mtn., Hinsdale, Dover, and Harrington, among others, would chuckle whenever a Delaware harness race would feature the rhythmic drivers Messrs. Pitts, Putz, Sheats, and Cropper !
