Race Horse Named "Total Truth"

By Rick Pearcey

The fun news is there's a race horse named "Total Truth." Someone clearly has stumbled into brilliance.

Well, almost.

Because said horse was discovered to have transgressed the legal limit for steroids and therefore scratched from a $500,000-purse race.

The above-linked June 16 news report makes no mention of home runs, triples, etc.

But there is this: Not long ago, in 2006, Total Truth, "with Ron Pierce at the controls," won a "thrilling victory at the $1.5 million Pepsi North America Cup."

Moral of story: Owners with a horse named "Total Truth" have big horseshoes to fill.

Please mind your race manners. Then run like crazy.
