Good and Plenty (1900–1907) was an American thoroughbred steeplechase racehorse.

History

Trained by Charles Kiernan, the bay gelding raced for four years between 1904 and 1907, leading all steeplechase horses in earnings and finishing with a record of 14-4-1 in 21 races that included a victory in the 1906 American Grand National Steeplechase.

Good and Plenty died of a chronic bone disease in 1907. He was inducted into the National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame in 1956.

Charles Cary Rumsey, an American sculptor and polo playing friend, was commissioned by Tommy Hitchcock to create a sculpture of Good and Plenty. [1]
