Tomorrow is Smarty Jones' 16th Birthday..how time flies! I believe there is a link in Bloodhorse because his former jockey Stewart Elliott won the George Wolf Award this year.

Happy Birthday Smarty Jones!  Seems like yesterday that he set the racing world ablaze.  Such lovely owners and other connections, too.  Loved the repeat of Steve Haskin's story in Bloodhorse.  Worth re-reading, all.

16!!  Does not seem possible!  What a great horse and a great horse for the sport.  He brought so many fans to it.

  I just read Haskin's story about Smarty--took me back in time--as usual Haskin captures the essence of the horse

Smarty was directly responsible for the upgrade to PARX Racing as well!

We now get the top horses for the Pennsylvania Derby and Cotillion thanks to him!
