           TRIVIA TODAY - Thursday, July 17, 2008 
       "Six Items a Day of Enduring Insignificance" 
------------------------------------------------------------ 

Greetings Infomaniacs,

One of my friends is celebrating her birthday this weekend, 
and she is getting a group of us together to go watch horse 
racing at a track near us. I've never been to horse races 
before, and I don't even know how to bet on a horse! Maybe 
that's a good thing because then I might save some money...

Enjoy!
Melissa

                    TODAY'S MYSTERY QUOTE 

QUOTE: "The race is not always to the swift, nor the battle 
to the strong, but that's the way to bet." 

HINT: (1884-1946), Journalist and short-story writer

*********************************************************** 

                        RANDOM TIDBITS 

In 1831, Squire George Osbaldeston rode 200 miles in eight 
hours, 39 minutes. Osbaldeston used 20 horses. His 
speed/distance record still stands.

                             *** 

On December 29, 1945, the record for the slowest time for 
a winning horse was set by Never Mind II. During a 2-mile 
steeplechase, Never Mind II refused the 4th jump and his 
rider gave up and returned to the paddock. Then the rider 
was told that all the other horses had fallen or been 
disqualified. Immediately he "raced" Never Mind II back 
to the field and finished in 11 minutes 28 seconds.

                             *** 

The Tetrarch, called by many Englishmen the fastest horse 
of all time, was so swift that he couldn't control his legs. 
His hind hooves cut and bruised the fetlocks and shins of 
his front legs. At the end of his two-year-old season in 
1913, during which he was undefeated, The Tetrarch had to 
retire because his legs were so badly damaged.

longest recorded career of any jockey.

                             ***

deals in history. The horse they bought for $700 earned 
$350,015 during its career.
