Of course! She's a quarter horse!

Silly me, assuming she was a thoroughbred.

Ah, well, you obviously knew InsertQuartertoWin's Sire was Spend a Buck. It probably just never dawned on you he covered a Quarter Horse mare named...

A whole quarter? Nah, if you used a dime and got PVal to ride her I bet you'd win the Wal-Mart/Kmart/Target series.

How long before Michael Iavarone comes by and checks her out for IEAH? :D

btw - there appears to be a lot of scrapes on the left side ... did Calvin Borel take her out and rub the rail?

(use the zoom feature)

You can really see the strong TB influence in her sire: http://www.worthpoint.com/worthopedia/1950s-champion-horse-ride-with-speed-control-1

Dam reference. Sure can see the QH there: http://www.worthpoint.com/worthopedia/antique-coin-operated-horse-kiddie-ride-champion

Oh, & jengersnap, I hope this is not too shameful for you, but I found a pict of Pulled the Plug: http://www.carouselworkshop.com/items/item430.htm

So Calvin did what Calvin does, his classic inside move. As you can see, the incident brought on a Steward's inquirey.

Yup, that's my ratty nag Plug! She gets her homely looks from her grandsire, CanUSpareSomeChange.

What a memorable year that was, with CanUSpareSomeChange & his regular rider Chris McCarron sweeping the nation with this famous marketing campaign that got everyone physically involved with racing!
