Here's a link to an interesting article about one of our favorite horses, Aroney. To correct the article, Tom Lindquist and I purchased him years ago. He won 4 times for Tom and Felicia Lindquist, and Debbie and I. He even holds a track record at Canterbury and this is a pic of him setting it.
I frankly can't say I've ever heard of anyone paying for a 9 year old claimer that was running at the bottom and lost by over 10 lengths in their last 7 starts, but nevertheless there was a time when this old boy could "get er done" on any surface for our trainer Gary Scherer, who deserves the credit for his success here in Minnesota.
I'll probably go out and cheer for him tonight because he always give everything he's got, and then I hope he gets retired.
