new shooter
 n.— «My horse is fine, 100 percent, and he’s going to stay fine because I’m going to take care of him. If I had run him one more time, I’d have to turn him out. Now when Real Quiet goes to the shelf for a post-Triple Crown break, I’ll have a new shooter.» —“”Charlie” is withdrawn; Lukas adds a rabbit to field” by Ron Indrisano in Baltimore, Md. Boston Globe May 13, 1998.
