    Default Famous people in the retriever games???

    I, like many other RTFers, are interested in the big time horse racing. I find it interesting that there are several " famous" people invested/involved in Thoroughbred racing. Many famous athletes, actors, and even chefs like Bobby Flay.
    That being said, I was wondering if there are any of our "famous" invested in our retriever games?

    Just a little bored on a Friday afternoon.
    We are only as good as those that surround us.

    I think he was a Field Trial gunner. Saw a photo of gunners with him in it in Retriever News.
