That pretty much sums up the powerhouse in my post above.
I retired him, undefeated from neighborhood gaiting races at age 16. Most everyone he came up against was close to 16H and they couldn't touch him.
Howeverrr, a handsome 16H, equally as fiercely competitive, Strawberry Roan speed racker came to town and he was only around seven. He also was undefeated.
It's safe to say I retired 14.3H Duke, undefeated, at age 16 before they could meet on the drag strip
I know that's ugly but---------------
