Monticello, NY --- There are horse’s names that are apropos but perhaps none more fittingly than Talldarknhandsome, a pacer currently competing at Monticello Raceway.

Talldarknhandsome, a 1:58 winner on Thursday (April 3) for driver Jimmy Marohn, Jr., is among the biggest horses on the racetrack today.
From the locally powerful Danny Gill barn, the 6-year-old altered son of Life Sign is more than 17 hands and more than six feet tall at his withers (front shoulders).
“He’s a big guy for sure,” Gill laughs, “but thankfully he’s a gentle giant. I’ve never seen a (harness) horse as tall as him in my life.”
