Some of My Favorite Jack and Jaklin Klugman Moments

Racing lost a good friend yesterday with the passing of 90-year-old actor, Jack Klugman. Best known as television's Oscar Madison and Dr. Quincy, he also played an integral part in one of my all-time favorite movies, 12 Angry Men. As a great fan of thoroughbred horse racing, the veteran actor owned in a partnership a horse who rose from complete obscurity to become a multiple stakes winner and a factor in some of America's biggest races. Jaklin Klugman, a terrific gray son of Orbit Ruler, gave Klugman great joy at the track, just as Klugman did for millions of fans through his acting. Below please enjoy some of my favorite moments from both man and horse.

I'll never forget an interview he did before the Preakness that year. His excitement and passion was palpable. RIP.
They had a great poker game in the Odd Couple, too.
Mrt. Klugman certainly wasn't shy about his love for horse racing. I was happy he had success w/ Jacklin Klugman. It's refreshing to see some of the younger "Hollywood Crowd" visible at BHP, KY Derby & BC, year after year.

As Editor of Horse Racing Nation, Brian authors a daily column as Zipse at the Track, or ZATT for short, adds his editorial flare to the overall content of the website, and co-hosts the popular racing show, HorseCenter.
