Trivia of the Day!
March 22, 1967, Muhammad Ali, after eight successful title defenses, including another win over Liston and one over former champ Floyd Patterson, knocks out Zora Folley in the seventh round in Madison Square Garden. The announcer introduced Ali from Houston, TX. Maybe due to the fact that he arrived in April, at age 25, for his scheduled induction into the U.S. military. He repeatedly refused to step forward when his name was called—despite being warned by an officer that he was committing a felony offense that was punishable by five years in prison. It was his last fight before losing his titles for refusing to be inducted into the U.S. Army.
March 22, 1962, Hal Price Headley, a Lexingtonian and owner of Beaumont Farm passed away at Kenneland Race Course of a heart attack. Returning from the track with a group of his horses and his daughter to Barn Q, he was fatally stricken at 11 AM. Headley was considered the guiding force in the foundation of Keeneland. In 1959, Rash Statement won the Alcibiades Stakes which was named for Headley’s foundation broodmare and in 1960 won the Spinster Stakes. Mr. Headley bred 88 stakes winners in all.
