Horse was named AQHA Supreme Champion in 1995
From staff reports
SELMA — A decathlete is admired in the track and field arena for an extraordinary ability to run, throw, jump and vault. Most athletes are not versatile or athletic enough to excel in several events.
Today, fans at Retama Park will get to see Gotum Gone, an American Quarter Horse all-around athlete, lead the racetrack^ opening post parade.
The 8-year-old son of world champion racehorse Dash For Cadi was named an AQHA Supreme Champion in 1995 for his exceptional versatility.
Gotum Gone competed in 21 raced on the track before taking his skills to the performance arena. There, he was successful in halter, reining, heading and heeling.
He competed in about 50 shows across Texas and New Mexico. Catherine Carr McHorse of Corpus Christi owns the horse.
Gotum Gone was the first horse to earn the award in 16 years.
Of the more than 3.5 million registered
American Quarter Horses, only 45 are Supreme Champions. Gotum Gone is one of only two geldings to be named Supreme Champion.
Five mares have earned the award and stallions make up the other 38 recipients.
Retama Park’s mixed meet runs from May 9 to July 6.
Live racing will begin at 6:30 p.m. Thursdays through Saturdays and post time is at 2 p.m. on Sundays.

“He threw me a couple of fastballs away, two fastballs up and the last one on the inside comer,” Gonzalez said. “He threw me good pitches and gave me nothing good to hit.”
Pettitte took a four-hitter and 4-1 lead into the eighth inning before the Rangers rallied on Rodriguez's RBI single and, after Rivera relieved, an RBI double by Will Clark.
Charlie Hayes homered in the New York eighth for a 5-3 lead, but again Texas came back. Pinch-hittcr Lee Stevens blooped a double with erne out and scored cm Palmer’s single.

“Our guys seemed a little rattled for a while,” said Mario Elie, 33.
In winning Game I at Houston 112-102, the Rockets hit 15 of 28 3-pointers. They were 9-for-27 from behind the arc in Game 2. Elie and rookie Matt Maloney combined for IO turnovers, 13 points and 4-for-12 shooting.
When Seattle pulled away with a 31-8 run in the second quarter, Houston coach Rudy Tomjanovich replaced Maloney with 35-year-old Sedate Threatt. Maloney had four turnovers in 22 minutes.
Karl used only seven players, playing Terry Cummings and David Wingate off the bench. Shawn Kemp had 22 points and 15 rebounds, while Hersey Hawkins added 21 points and had six of Seattle’s 15 steals.
“Kemp played a monster game,” Drexler said. “He was the catalyst.”
All-Star point guard Gary Payton said Kemp is intimidating the Rockets.
“I don’t think Barkley wants to face him up and guard him because he knows he’s going to get fouls,” Payton said.
Payton has been struggling offensively against the Rockets. He’s
