new shooter
 n.— «It was a new race over a new track, and there were several new shooters trying to knock him off. But none of Pulpit’s potential problems materialized. It was as if divine intervention was bestowed upon the colt, who resurrected his standing among the nation’s leading 3-year-olds with an emphatic victory today in the Blue Grass Stakes at Keeneland Race Course.» —“…and His Archrival, Pulpit, Will Be There Waiting” by Jay Privman in Lexington, Ky. New York Times Apr. 13, 1997.
