    Have not been keeping tabs on the horse lately, but he used to be a first place pick because of his speed neck and lighter saddle. I believe he retired after pulling a ham string in the stretch.

    I'd wager he has an oval hole and no f-holes.

    He is a gelding. I assume he can't use ball-end strings.
