    No festival entries would suggest he’s on the easy list

    You’ve named yourself after a very good horse, J O.

    That’s a terrific article, Grimes.

    I remember J.O.Tobin as a very smart two-year-old in this country, trained by Noel Murless towards the end of his career. Impressive winner of the Richmond and very impressive winner of the Champagne, he met his match when going over to France to take on Blushing Groom in the Grand Criterium where he finished third, possibly not giving his running, although Blushing Groom was almost certainly his superior anyway. His owner transferred him to the USA thereafter and he did very well over there as the article says.

    He was a disappointment at stud, however.

    JO Tobin was trained by Sir Noel for his British career before transferring to the USA for more sucess.

    The horse was named after a famous heart surgeon and was owned by George Pope who was a friend of the human JOT.

    The equine JOT once beat Seattle Slew in the Swaps Stakes at Hollywood Park. Willie Shoemaker rode JOT on this day.

    Interesting about Blushing Groom, Gus. I read he was an influence for speed and always take note when he is the sire or dam sire of a horse.
