Judge Dismisses Lawsuit Over Name of Filly

A federal judge has dismissed a lawsuit by a Thoroughbred racehorse
owner who sued to name one of his fillies after Sally Hemings, a
colonial era slave who was reputed to be a mistress of Thomas
Jefferson, the third president of the United States and author of
the U.S. Declaration of Independence.

In a ruling dated Sept. 16, U.S. District Senior Judge Karl Forester
sided with The Jockey Club and the Kentucky Horse Racing Authority,
two groups that had asked that the suit be thrown out.

Garrett Redmond, a Paris, Ky., farmer, sued the racing authority and
The Jockey Club in May after a request to name the horse for Hemings
was denied. The Jockey Club regulates the naming of Thoroughbred

Redmond had argued the denial had deprived him of his rights under
the U.S. Constitution. Redmond said he plans to appeal Forester's
decision to the 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Cincinnati,

"Everything I've heard is I've won the case in public opinion, so
The Jockey Club is going to do its damnedest to keep it from being
heard (in court)," Redmond said.

In order to be eligible to race at a track in Kentucky, a
Thoroughbred must have a name that has been accepted by The Jockey
Club, said Jim Gallagher, executive director of the racing
authority. Redmond claimed the rule amounted to an improper
delegation of power by the state to The Jockey Club, because the
authority was relying on that organization's Thoroughbred
registration information, but Forester rejected that argument.

Said Jockey Club president Alan Marzelli Forester's ruling "upheld
our right as a private organization to make and enforce rules. Those
rules are for the integrity of racing...and the responsibility falls
upon us to enforce those rules."

Gallagher had no comment on the decision.

The dam of Redmond's 2-year-old filly is Jefferson's Secret, whose
sire is Colonial Affair. Redmond believes the name "Sally Hemings"
would be a natural for a horse of such lineage.

Guido Fawkes was a very minor player in Robert Catesby's unthought out & counterproductive action
Fawkes was the most minor & therefore most vulnerable plotter.
That is precisely why he was the first caught & his being first caught is his main claim to fame.
King James was the son of a Catholic mother who had been executed for her Catholicism.
He had far greater sympathy for Catholics than for the then emerging Puritans.
The plotters "attempt to address the oppression of Roman Catholics in England" was disastrous for Roman Catholics.

Happy Birthday!

The British soldier tortured and executed for his attempt to address the oppression of Roman Catholics in England,

Guy Fawkes

was born 4/13/1570
(killed 1/31/1606)

        I'll tell you a doleful tragedy
        Guy Fawkes, the prince of sinisters
        Who once blew up the House of Lords
        The King and all his ministers
        That is, he would have blown them up,
        And we would ne'er forget him,
        His will was good to do the deed
        If they had only let him.

                "Guy Fawkes" see DigTrad filename[ GUYFAWKE

3rd president, Tom Jefferson was born 4/13/1743 (d1826)

        From Georgia up to Lake Champlain
        From seas to Mississippi's shore;
        Ye sons of freedom loud proclaim,
        The Reign of Terror is no more.
        Rejoice-Columbia's sons, rejoice!
        To tyrants never bend the knee;
        But join with heart, and soul and voice
        For JEFFERSON and LIBERTY.

                "Jefferson and Liberty," from The New Green Mountain Songster,
                Flanders et al.; DigTrad filename[ JEFFLIB - [thanx Steve Suffet]
