This is a little dated, but fun news, nonetheless. Tipped off by a post to the Hounds of the Internet about a horse at Churchill Downs called Wiggins, I did a little sleuthing.
Churchill Downs Racing News had an entry on May 26, called Wiggins Sets Sights on Stephen Foster in which the Canonically named gelding was reported as winning by 2 1/2 lengths to take home $58,900. Not bad for a Baker Street Irregular.
Even more interesting: Wiggins is the sire of Cartwright. Cartwright, of course, was "the little chap from the express office" who accompanied Holmes to the moor in The Hound of the Baskervilles.
