Fine Record?

In 2000, British racehorse Quixall Crossett returned from a 15-month sabatical (recovering from a tendon injury) to compete again -- and lost its 98th outing.

The "equine turtle" -- scheduled to run two more races before being considered for retirement -- would soon enter the record books as the first thoroughbred in racing history to lose 100 consecutive races.

[In 1980, an uncontested horse named Spectacular Bid won the Woodward Stakes at Belmont Raceway -- in what horse racing afficionados call a walkover -- simply by walking the course.]
