   Dave Magee is the best driver,Andy Miller a close second,Tim Tetrick runs too much,hes lucky Welch is trainning his drives. Jason shows talent but is timid.Eric Ledford was great,Mike O,getting better,Ryan Anderson has talent.

  Trainers,Roger Welch stands out,trains a small number of horses and they all make it to the top level and they shine on big purse races and he can drive also,Homer H. ruins more than he makes,treats them like machines,Eaton still back in the 70s.He spends alot of money on yearlings and gets no return,needs to watch RW closer,Erv Miller,starts with the best and the most expensive,but how many make it? If they make it,they are tough!

RTP & Bobcat,

Not only could Victor carry three beers from the bar at Maywood and bum a cigarette and matches off of you, he can also hit you up for twenty in the lane with the whip tucked away!!!!

               I agree with bobcat , victor pegues is the best trot man ever ! i've watched him trot to the bar and never go offstride carrying 3 or 4 beers to consume . he staggers sometimes but never makes a break , especially to his pocket . plus he can lite up a cigarette without spilling a drop .

I have heard ALOT of great stories about Elwood Magee, so I will put him on my list.  Best at driving a trotter in chicago now, I would have to day Dave Magee. 

Is it just me, or do those Magee's have talent!!
