Mamie´s Flyer was bought in September of 1981 as a private sale for $500. He was racing in $750 claimers and his trainer told us he was a rat
We raced him in $750
claimers and he won. He then proceeded up the claiming ladder through $800, $1100, $1300, $1500, $2000, $2500 and $3000.
Mamie had a definite style of racing in that he always came from
