There are horse's names that are apropos but perhaps none more fittingly than that of Talldarknhandsome, a pacer currently competing at Monticello Raceway.

Yesterday (April 3) Talldarknhandsome, a 1:58 winner for driver Jimmy Marohn, Jr., is among the biggest horses on the racetracks today.

From the locally powerful Danny Gill barn the 6 year old altered son of Lifetime unbelievably is well over 17 hands; over six feet tall at his withers (front shoulders).

"He's a big guy for sure," Gill laughs, "but thankfully he's a gentle giant. I've never seen a (harness) horse as tall as him in my life."
