Silky Sullivan

In the Fifties, there was a racehorse who drove people crazy. His name was Silky Sullivan, the all-time come from behind champion, and, doggone it, this post just wrote itself. I saw Silky race on television, and every bit of the poem is true. dansullivan9026 posted a rockabilly celebration of this horse on you.tube.

Silky’s jockey, Willie Shoemaker, said, “Once a guy starts wearing silk pajamas, it’s hard to get up in the morning.”
