Some menu items in U.S. Mexican restuarants appearently would never be called by the same name in Mexico. 

Chimichanga is just one example, a variation of the same root word. 

"Steak burrito". There's another.

Stacker of Wheat, trained for most of his career by Gerald McGrath.  As honest as they came.  Seemed like he tried every single time out.  Good pick.

Little Chingaso = Little F_cker

I remember him winning a 4 or 5k claiming race that turned out
to be the biggest key race i can recall(at least 5 returned to win)

 One was JR Smith ( claim?) that worked his way up to small stakes caliber. Cant remember his name

I have a sort of "anti-favorite" horse. Not sure if he was a career claimer or not, but I'm sure he was at the end.

Stacker of Wheat.

That damn horse beat me in every race he was ever in that I bet. If I used him, somehow he failed. If I left him out, he'd win or fill the exacta. Every single time!

Stupid Stacker of Wheat. He owes me a lot of money!

Higgler was mine.  I hated Higgler. He was always in good betting races and he always screwed me over. I still hate Higgler.

One of my favorite claimers was Silver Mystery (?? I hope I'm remembering right) - He was claimed 7 or 8 times in a row. He would almost always win under 15,000, but not win at 18,000. The nice thing was, you knew everybody was trying hard for the win, because they KNEW he would be claimed, so they wanted the win money.

Chartwell mentioned a great old-timer - Maxwell G.
But my all time favorite claimer is a gelding with the uninspiring name of Ed R.  A 1948 foal, Ed spent his teen age years racing at Fairmount Park and Cahokia Downs.  He was a late running sprinter and would lag far behind early, then make a furious charge in the stretch. In 1960, at the age of 12, he won 12 races, 6 at FP and 6 at Cka.  Two years later he must have set a record of sorts when he was claimed (for $1500) at the age of 14!

Ed R's stats:

starts - 244
w - 62
p - 49
s - 36
Lifetime earnings - $101,880
