Back in 2004 Phungo HQ and much of Philadelphia got caught up in the Horse Racing excitement. Part of it was the buzz of the Film and Book Seabiscuit, but mostly it was that We had a Horse in the Race.
And for half of the Belmont Stakes it looked like it was going to happen then Smarty Jones ran out of gas.
Regardless it was a great run and fun couple of weeks to get into the sport of kings
The above Smarty Jones card is from the sharp looking UD Goodwin Champions set which was an answer to Topps Allen & Ginter's - Basically a baseball product with other noteworthy subjects from sports politics and entertainment
