Joe Palmer, the late racing expert
Joe Palmer, the late racing expert, told about a man from Idaho who breezed into Kentucky with a six-year-old horse that had never raced before, but which he entered for a race. The horse won easily and paid a whopping price. The racing stewards did not like the look of the thing and questioned the owner. 'Is this horse unsound?' they asked. 'Not a bit,' said the owner. 'In that case,' asked the stewards, 'why have you never raced him before?' 'Mister,' said the man from Idaho, 'we couldn't even catch the critter until he was five years old.'
