“Do you know me?”

Posted on 1 min read 53 views

Do you know me?

I have a Very Famous stablemate.

My name comes from a beer commercial.

My human dad made a lot of money selling vitamin water.

I ran in the 2011 Kentucky Derby, and I came in second at the 2011 Belmont Stakes.

I won the 2011 Jim Dandy Stakes in dandy fashion in Saratoga.

And my photo is on the cover of Sasscer Hill’s e-pubbed short story “Steamroller.”

I make good money, but I don’t have any fancy, status credit cards.

I’m a cash-only kind of guy, my friends.

Some say I’m The Most Interesting Horse in the World.

Who am I?

Give up? Looking for more serious reading?

  • Coverage of the 2011 Jim Dandy as reported in the Blood Horse
  • Interview with “human dad” as reported in the Albany Times-Union with comments from “Uncle Todd”
  • Lots of details about me on the Horse Racing Nation site, including “bio dad and mom”
  • What’s next for me via a Louisville Courier-Journal blog

FWIW, “Steamroller” is available through Kindle, Nook and Smashwords.

    I hope you can help me to finish a project that I am working on.On June 24th, 1922 there was a running of the Kentucky special which featured Whiskaway, Morvich, Pillory, Deadlock, and Thibodaux. Whiskaway finished first 1/2 length on a steady gaining Thibodaux 1/5th of a second off the track record at the time. My dilema is that I wish to find out more about this horse Thibodaux and it’s owner Will Perkins. More importantly the horse of course. I initially was interested in Pillory because he of course won the 1922 Belmont and Preakness and because the Preakness and Kentucky Derby were run on the same day he couldn’t win the Derby which Morvich won. So I came across this race in which the two met and came upon this horse Thibodaux. Any information that you might have or if you could point me somewhere would be greatly appreciated. Again thanks a million.

    I almost forgot about your question. You are Stay Thirsty. I had a nice $928 exacta on that one. Unfortunately, that was all I had. Most of my other bets included you know who. But I forgive Johnny.
