Yep except we don't really have a name for an Irish martingale over here most of the time unless you have seen it for sale as an Irish martingale which doesn't normally happen because I have seen many of them in racing but I have never seen them being sold lol

LOL sorry Kevin...... Ham is Ham and Bacon is Bacon to us Canadians.
Its is BACK bacon that you Americans refer to as Canadian Bacon

It is made from the loin cut, which is in the center of the pig's back. As a result, the bacon is much leaner than conventional bacon. Back bacon is prepared in the same way as conventional bacon, with a salting and smoking process intended to cure the meat. Slightly more sugar is usually used, lending a sweet quality to "Canadian bacon."

Sorry grew up on a hog farm

Carry on with your martingale talk

Yep, and thanks for the clarification - these Yanks don't seem to understand what Canadian Bacon is. I am Canadian, living in Michigan and I get asked that question all the bloody time.

I haven't learned a thing about martingales but I now have some interesting facts for the next time I'm having pizza with the family.

There's nothing like the Rockies in the springtime... Nothing like the freedom in the air... And there ain't nothing better than draggin calves to the fire and there's nothing like the smell of burning hair. -Brenn Hill

LOL! That is what Americans are called all over the world, especially in Canada and England/Ireland/Scottland.

I find it funny how you Yanks don't even know what a Toque is! ROFL!

Americans = Yanks

I agree with MIE on this , us Brits call Americans ( U.S.) Yanks , which by the way is a hell of a lot better than what some from other countries get called.

And Kevinshorses - if you haven't learned much about martingales then you can't have read much of the thread.
