                                       Whizzer R White                                 

  One of the popular Illinois bred pacers on the circuit in the early 1980s was Whizzer R White, a son of Shadow’s Finale, bred by Joan Norine Bulow of Hickory Hills, Illinois and owned by the trio of Chicago Norman Mandell, Naperville’s George Bonomo and James Errichello of Porter, Indiana.

  From 1981 through 1983 Whizzer R White proved best in 26 of 63 starts for driver Dave Magee and trainer Roger Davino and made over $296,000.

  In his 1981 freshman season the horse won the $30,000 Poplar Byrd Stake at Sportsman’s Park in a track record time of 1:59.1 for a 2-year-old pacer.

  In his sophomore season, among his 13 victories was the $130,000 Pete Langley Memorial before it was a Super Night stake and left no doubt he was the premier Illinois bred 3-year-old pacer.

  Whizzer R White is shown in the above photo winning the N.L. Skipper ICF stake with the 28-year-old Magee, his 110th victory of the summer Sportsman’s meet, breaking his own record of 109 established the previous year in 1981.
