This is the story of the great race horse, Exterminator. Affectionately known as "Old Bones," he was born May 30, 1915, at the W.D. Knight farm, near Lexington, Kentucky. He was never much to look at but throughout his amazing life he showed that he loved to run and possessed a gentle nature and a winning spirit. An unknown in 1918, he won the Kentucky Derby. He went on to become America's top winner of cup races and, according to many experts, the greatest thorobred ever developed in this country. Exterminator retired in 1924, at the age of nine, when he pulled up lame in his 100th race. He died in 1945, at the ripe old age of thirty. Exterminator is buried on the Kilmer farm, near Binghamton, New York, beside his constant companion, the pony PeanutsII, and near his old stablemate, Sun Briar.
