  1. TBJ a Maine sired horse Election Day-Lucky Gem-Lucky Eden finished 3rd in that race. Went on to take the track record at Cunmberland Fair 202 2/5. As a 2 year old the first year of The N.E.B.O.A (New England Breeders and Owners Association) 22 starts 10 wins 6 seconds 5 third. Took a 1:59 2/5 wire to wire record at Liberty Bell Park 10-07-1977 and 1:59 4/5 on half mile track 1:59 4/5. Seems as a Maine Bred Stallion bred under the shed row at Lewiston Raceway and failed in the owners backyard in Auburn, Maine Thomas B. Johnson Sr. So happy to have a little stud colt (by a $300 sire) he gave him his initials. Earned over $140,000 seems deserved of the Maine Hall of fame if Cheviit made it? A lot of Maine in that horse. Wouldn't you agree?
