    Jew Score:



    1920 – 1943

    Horse racing is definitely not a Jewish sport. Throughout the years, we Jews have been too busy running from men on horses to ride them ourselves.

    But could there be Jewish horses? What, you think we're out of our mind? Well, take a look at the list of Kentucky Derby winners. You can't tell us that Giacomo (2005) is not Italian. Or that Gato Del Sol (1982) is not Spanish. So let's see if we can find a Jewish one.

    Barbaro, no... Fusaichi Pegasus, no... Spend A Buck — never! Secretariat... we wish. That's a 5 K Score right there. Kauai King, that's Hawaiian... Gallahadion, no... Clyde Van Dusen, that's Dutch... OK, here we go. Zev, 1923. Zev! That's definitely a Jewish name.

    But a Jewish horse he is not. Zev's parents were The Finn and Miss Kearney. He's obviously Irish. (As an aside, we can easily find out the name of each of his 16 great-great-grandparents. We don't know the names of OUR great-great-grandparents. Sad.)

    So why the Jewish name? Zev was named after the owner's friend and lawyer, Colonel Zevely. So much for that.

    Oh well. No Jewish horse.

    Now, if there was a Jewish horse, how would you go about circumcising....

    Verdict: Not a Jew.
