I just came across these message boards.   Was a huge harness fan several years ago (early to mid 90's) - went away to school and just moved back to Chicago.  I followed the racing from a far and it looks like alot of the names are the same but there are a few that I wondered whatever happened to....

1.   Gerald Longo.   I was a huge fan of his whip (wrapped around the head).   I hit my first daily double with him hitting both ends at Sportsman's.

2.  Claude Spann.   Funny story, I was in the booth with Tony Salvaro once on a Night at the Races for my high school and Salvaro goes "Watch Spann go to the lead like he's running from the cops"   

3.  Dan Knox - Have to guess he retired.
