Those blessed with a good memory and a fondness for 70 rated handicappers will remember Teofilio: the miler who seemed to run every week around the turn of the century. Trained by RUK’s Angus McNae for much of his career.
It’s take your pick whether the Cuban pugilist Stevenson and the Peruvian soccerist Cubillas were Teofilo or Teofilio as both have been used; the Gospel According to Wikipedia use the former.
Quote: from Gigginstown Man on 2:38 pm on April 18, 2007[br]Jim Bolger is as shrude if not shruder than any other trainer in Ireland. And was offered and turned down the Ballydoyle job. Along with a huge price for Teofilio!!<br>
Is he the shrewdest because he has the two Antepost favourites for the Guineas? What would make him as shrewd as Oxx, Weld or O’Brien?
