On this day April 3, 1969 By ESTEY I. REED On this day, in 1806, the Nashville (Tenn.) Impartial Review ran the following sports item: "On Thursday the 3rd of of April will be run (he greatest and most interesting race ever run in the Western country between Gen. Jackson's horse, Truxton, 6 years old carrying 124 pounds, and Capt. Joseph Erwin's horse, Plough- boy, 8 years old, carrying 130 pounds, for the sum of $3,000." The story was a reminder item. The race had previously been announced. On that day all roads led to Clove? Bottom, where Jackson surveyed "the largest concourse of people I ever saw assembled, unless in an army." Jackson wasn't sure whether people had come to view his triumph or humiliation. During a recent workout, Truxton had been injured. Nothing could reduce the injured thigh. Clearly the big stallion wasn't himself. Jackson's friends tried to persuade him to forfeit his wager and postpone the race. , Luck was with Jackson. It rained. Ploughboy definitely wasn't a mudder. Truxton's injury was eased by the rain.
