his brother was a great horse for his era Sir Dalrae. i just thought ot of good humor mans brother. im thinking Most Happy fella but still not sure but maybe somebody with an old hoof beats can help

Good Humor man brought $210,000 as a yearling. He earned less than $10,000 and was subsequently shipped Down Under where he had some success as a stallion.

He was full to MHF and Jolly Rodger. The latter beat Albatross and Harry Harvey for Stanley Dancer in the Readung Futurity at Laurel.

Swoop, in your years around the track, have you come across any Fulla Napoleons?
Mostly 70's and 80's...

Fulla Napoleon was a failure at stud but he did produce Tijuana Taxi, a speedy colt who did battle with Sonsam, Hot Hitter and Happy Motoring. TT finished third in the Pace and won a heat of the Jug. He was a hard charging second to Hot Hitter and Herve in the final, losing by a neck.
