Jim's dad gave us a winner once at Sportsman's.  A trotter named Undercurrent.  John A. Curran driving paid $20 to win.

Do you remember Jim driving a white Tornado?  I use to drive it back to his apartment garage and park it so if Farrington's daughter checked up on him it would look like he was sleeping.  Walt Lepo would pick me up.

I used to like Curran as a driver.
I thought he had a quiet class about him.
Remember when he would occasionally sub for Aubrey Petty on Kay Michael?
WOW!!!!!!!!

Darth JACK OFF


what did you ever do? except come up with a original name? My guess is nothing, with the exception of being a waste of skin!!!!

Jim was completely old school, IMO. He put a horse in money making position everytime he drove. You try an prove me wrong on that one. I'm not trying to say he was the greatest ever, but he was one of the few to put who he was driving for in front of himself!!!!!!

Just like so many other phony people who post like Burton, Joe B. Interested Observer, Richard Breth, ruckerfan, Mr. Maywood and others who have never done one thing in the harness business as a trainer or driver these goofs are the first to cut someone up who has accomplished something in the business.

The true bullshit of this forum is quite simple to me! Anyone who knows what it was way back when, still
appreciate it !!!!! Those who don't mock it!!!


p.s. Isn't it sad that a perennial driver in chicago for almost 3 decades-- Becomes a steward in Indiana??
