Stymie or Assault?
Not sure where to put this. eBay has a great book for sale for $14. Very cheap. The title is This Was Racing by Joe Palmer. Palmer was one of the top racing writers through the 40's and '50's. Stymie was one of favorite horses and there are some great stories and vignettes of top horses and jockeys etc.
  • travel_vic · good book I have it..FUll of stories written by a fellow who died much too young. · 779 days ago
  • travel_vic · used to walk by Hedley Woodhouse when he was an usher at then Exhibiton Park Vancouver, sneak up behind him and say "YOU lost on Stymie?" He would shush me and laugh. · 779 days ago
Drop away his first two years and then look at his record
  • buckpasser · A lot of Stymie's problem was his temperment. He had a double dose of Man O War in him on both sire and dam side. Hirsch Jacobs was used to picking up claimers and making something of them. · 1203 days ago
  • travel_vic · Years ago, I met his rider Hedly Woodhouse who was then working as an usher at Hasting's when it was still called Exhibition Park. After we got to know one another, I would sneak up behind him and yell out "Yoy LOST n Styie?" He would either laugh out loud or make attempts at obsence gestures my way. · 1203 days ago
Raced more than can be believed

  • travel_vic · Wonder how many ptential stakes stars never get the care or tariner savvy to get them out of the claiming ranks..We had one old guy who excelled at it. He once claimed a horse, non winner in his last 20 on a Wednesday and WON with him the following week. Got a call to talk to the stewards at which time he just showed them a rotten tooth that he had pulled. Made all the difference to this animal and he finally ran for once.

  • buckpasser · Good point. People didn't think much of Stymie, but Hirsh Jacobs saw something in him. Same with Seabiscuit, Tom Smith saw the real competitor in him which others missed. Other times an injury or change in equipment makes all the difference · 1436 days ago
Wow. Look at his earnings! Check out his biography tab if you want to know why I'm impressed.
  • TheSecondBigRed · He really was a great horse. I only wish he was as recognized as Seabiscuit, considering they have quite similar stories. I personally like Stymie better. · 1784 days ago
