Adam & Tronvold stopped at the Visitors Bureau, but could not get a straight answer.
Weise and Haviland decided there was just no way to explain it to them.

In a stroke of brilliance, and after a few drinks, Hindman cons The Lads into investing in a race horse. We name him Twenty Seventh Street !
This horse turns out to be a real street-fighter. He has a series of fights with training devices, stalls, fences, rails, and equipment.
And looses them all.
With an optimistic eye to the future, we decide to start him out at Churchill Downs, and send him there to train for his first race. He gets in a fight with his stall and injures himself. Next to New Orleans. Another battle with his equipment, and he is shipped to Florida to heal. That takes nearly a year. Then he is sent to Maryland for training. More self-inflicted injuries. More recuperation. Loves laying around in his stall, and has a real appetite for oats. This guy is now a four year old and has yet to run a race.
Next to New York, and finally a couple of starts at Aqueduct late in 2002.
Post time !
They're Off !
But he sees nothing to fight, and saunters down the track. Were it not for a couple of really slow horses he would have finished last.
Hindman decides enough is enough, and the horse is recalled to Maryland for a "chat with the boss." The years of training, board, transportation, vet bills, and oats are now discussed in great detail.
In January 2003 Jim has him taken to nearby Charles Town Race Track for yet another try.
This time he is driven past a glue factory on the way to the track. Will he get the point ?
First Win: January 11, 2003 (Click on picture to enlarge.)
So next, our trainer, now known as "That %&*# ing Genius" says,
Let's put him in a claiming race, and pick up some easy cash ! "
"No one will claim a horse with only one win, "
The Result you ask ?
You guessed it. He was claimed.
Gross Return on Investment (Note this is NOT Net) = 3.2 %
Net Return on Investment (Note is IS a negative number) = - 96.8 %
So much for Hindman getting us "a little bit pregnant" ...
