I admit I'd never heard of him either!  And he does look sleepy - it was tough work slogging through all that mud!

SHADOW OF ILLINOIS, 10 YO gelding... Quite a story... Made comeback after multi-year layoff... Between races he lives at home with his owners.

Just happens to be entered today... 2nd Race (Turf) at Del Mar.

The late Joe Hirsch, longtime Daily Racing Form columnist, wrote this about JH...
"He was not the best race horse. He was not the fastest or the busiest. He wasn't the greatest weight carrier, and certainly not the handsomest or the most personable. But he was the most remarkable horse who ever raced -- anywhere."

Well of 3 yr olds, Point Empress. She was 17hh as a yearling! My favorite of the 3 yr olds is already retired though after busting a knee. Point Empress has worked but hasn't raced yet. Two yr olds, my favorite filly, Elusive Tara, has run once so far against all colts and ran 5th against all colts with a rough trip. I love that filly though, took a while to win her over ;-)
