The lowest claiming price in NY was $10,000 & you had to be pretty bad to at that bottom, although I don't know if he raced & was claimed elsewhere. 

 sarcasm Now that you mention it, I believe Robert Hoffman drove him in the early days!  sarcasm
Before he came to N.Y.he raced in a 3,000cl

In the Int'l Trot Keystone Pioneer fought long & hard to win it & then the young Peter Haughton fell out of the bike while accepting a handshake 100 yards after the race.

Some of the Open Handicap trotters were Kash, Pioneer, Savior (Chapman), James B (Insko), Petite Evander (Dunnigan), Mickey Rodney (Dauplaise), Elmsford (Henri) & Green Speed.

They didn't break Kash's 1 1/2 mile time until Lutin D'Isgnay, who I believe won the Int'l 3 straight years, all on the front end.


Didn't he climb right up the claiming ranks & into the Open?  I remember Dokey & Carmine driving him often.  And of course there was Newt Lobell, who probably lasted longer than anyone in the Opens.
Peter fell out of the bike after winning with Cold Comfort and was reaching over to shake hands with Eddie Dunnigan who is a good family friend and once trained for WRH...

Absolutely!  Cold Comfort - I stand corrected. 

Dunnigan was of course driving Petite Evander.

Simpson proclaimed Classical Way to be better than the boys before the Ky Futurity and he was right. Jimmy Allen admitted that Chiola had no excuse for losing to her in the deciding heat.

Prior to her win in the International, the following year, everyone was singing the praises of ideal du Gazeau and the public sent him off as the odds on choice, but prior to the race Simpson, who drew on the outside, said he was just going to follow Ideal with his mare and pass him at the end. As it turned out  Ideal was trying to catch Classical Way.

Simpson said before the race that he considered her the greatest trotting mare this country ever produced. She could race all day on the outside. She followed Ted Wing and Crown’s Star around in the ATC the week before the International, before taking over, and she followed one of the Euros’ around on the outside in the International.

Ideal du Gazeau dead heated with Petite Evander for second in that edition of the International. I think Cold Comfort, who went into the race with double digit losses, came next.


Classical Way was the last foal of Kerry Way. She sold for 400k to the Swedes, in foal to Super Bowl, when she was ten. Delmonica, who was seven years younger, had sold for a record 300K as a broodmare.
