    Alex and ShowJump are BOTH right -- I was thinking of Mrs Johnson and Super Flash and Fun and Games. Forgot they didn't have the A/A 's back then. Just goes to show you that, if Mrs Johnson could do the A/O's then we are wusses now about jumping 3'1"... Mrs. Johnson was the ultimate A/A rider. But she went in and rode around over those 3'6" jumps like a champ -- and occasionally got some nice ribbons.

    LH2 --- Name atleast 3 of the original fancy ponies that took over the pony division in the early '60's and changed the pony world forever (both small and large). Extra credit for naming owners and riders.

    LH3 Name two of Marvin Van Rappaport's horses and his farm name. Extra credit for knowing Marvin's business that enabled him to own these wonderful horses.

    Yikes Lord Helpus, I'm afraid the '60's will even outdate me, but I'll guess: Tidbit, Wenol Bechan? Think that was much later....hmmm.

    Marvin V.R.: Spindletop Showdown is one. The other's a Spindletop too, as I recall, but can't remember the name.

    I intended I.C.Blue Shadow, but VTRider insists Paige never rode that one. I think she's wrong, but will go w/the majority opinion! LOL

    You and I come from the same era!

    Marvin's horses included Spindletop Showdown, Spindletop Please Note and Spindletop Midtown. His nightclub, Spindletop, in NYC financed the horses.

    Fancy ponies in the sixties:
    Smalls: Midget, Chantilly, Driftwood, Cockscrow Flair, Crepe Suzette, Wizard of Oz, Highfields Town and Country

    Larges: Pride 'n Joy, Prim 'n Proper, Neat n' Tidy, Rebel, Flying Mouse, Hot Shot Kid, Keswick, Thorwell

    I could go on and on. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]

    LH3 -- Spindletop Showdown.... It was Spindletop Farm. Can't think of names of other horses although I know they are in my memory bank somewhere right next to the information about what business he was in.....

    I rode a jumper out on Long Island a few times in the mid-70s who was called Klondike Kat that I was told Marvin Rappaport had owned, but I never did trust the person who told me that. He was a big chestnut, TB I assume, and I jumped my only 4' course on him.

    Here's a tough one and will show who the REAL trivia fans are: Two bays, one a TOP a/o mare in the 70's, winning many times at Indoors and probably more championships than any a/o horse before or since; the other, with a related name, out of the first horse, also champion many times in the regulars in the '90's. Both trained by the same trainer.

    Oh dear, I am REALLY guessing here, but is the first one Kim's Song, the wonderful horse owned by Bruce Duchossios?

    No clue about the second....

    was named in reference to I.C. Blue Shadow. Both ponies were started at Road's End in the later 80's. Can't recall who rode I.C. first, before she went to Alison, but Kim Vernell rode Better Than Blue first and then he went to Goodmans and I am not sure at what point he "became" a medium.

    Nope.......and wasn't Kim's Song a chestnut?

    Major clue: first horse owned by same person who was also winning with Perfect Stranger.

    All right, well obviously I don't mind making a complete fool of myself so I am going to guess again.

    LH2. Midget and Nancy Broody. Do I get extra points for knowing her brothers name was David?
    Smokey Joe and any or all of the Boyce�s.
    Serendipity and Margaret Houseman
    Penny Loeb and all of her ponies

    LH3 Spindletop Showdown and Spindletop Count Fleet, later bought by Nancy Candib. (Pretty Smart, huh?) And his dining establishment was the Spindletop. Did ja know that his name wasn�t van Rapport, but Marvin Rapport and van was his middle name?

    Right on, but that was an easy one.

    Here's a hard one. What famous trainer in CT had a phone # of Davis 2-1590. If you get this one I know you were a student of his

    Margaret, Thats the horse I couldn't think of. I think you are right. Hopefully Alex will come back and let us know. Lord Helpus probably knows the answer too.

    I thought I had heard that and always thought it was a cute name. I would imagine Vida Blue comes into those lines somewhere?

    But on behalf of anyone who every trained with Bob McDonald I am assuming that Fun and Games is not the same one who was in California with Kim Ostman.
