Congratulations to "Runaway Jim", pictured above with phan owner Stacy.

Jim won his maiden race for three year olds and up at the Saratoga Race Course in Saratoga Springs, NY in Friday's 8th race (a $48,000 allowance race on the turf for 3-year-olds and up), running 1 1/16 miles on the inner turf and winning in 1:42:40. It was only his second race of the year, after a rehab stint over the winter/spring season. Jim paid $10 to win, $4.20 to place and $3.60 to show.

kowphish There was a horse named Phish running on the NY circuit, Spa, Bel, around 2008 I think.
Don't know if it is the same owner. Phish's owner was a gentleman who said his daughter was a fan of a band that spelled it's name like that. That horse too was a grey.
