Sky Jack tops One million

Who'd a thunk it? Jacklin Klugman (they named him Jacklin because they
first thought he was a she) sires a millionaire. If I remember
correctly, Orbit Ruler (Jacklin's sire) was standing in Chino in
someone's back yard when bred to The End All (career earnings 5,775).
Jacklin was one of those unforgettable horses. Grey with really long
ears. Laz Barrera once spoke the words that everyone was thinking,
"that horse looks like a jackass." True, but he was a gamer. Used to
see Jack Klugman at Santa Anita. Is he still around?

Yes he is, as far as I know. He had his larynx removed in 1989 due to throat
cancer and was unable to speak at all for many years afterward.

He used to be spotted occasionally at the OTB a few blocks away from
Sloan-Kettering, which is a cancer center.
