"Exterminator was one of hrose racing's first superstars...affectionately known as "Old Bones", went from backup performer to headliner in 1918 when he won the Kentucky Derby. ..During his long career [8 years], this iron-willed and durable horse continued to impress racing fans wherever he ran. He won 50 of the 99 races, regularly carrying 130 pounds or more [one time even carrying 140#], and raced for 9 different trainers and 18 jockeys. Exterminator was best at the Derby distance of a mile and a quarter, 10 furlongs, and beyond. In fact, the longer the race, the more invincible he became. He was retired in 1924 after an 8 year career to the farm of his owner, Willis Sharpe Kilmer....spent the rest of his days enjoying the good life with his [succesion of] pony pal, Peanuts....died at the age of 30 in 1945. Elected to the Racing Hall of Fame in 1957, he is still remembered as one of horse racing's greatest Legends". Unlike his contemporary, Man O'War, a stallion, who only raced as a two and three year old in 21 races, and then put out to stud, Exterminator continued racing, due to the fact that he was a gelding, and kept bringing home the money. One of the most famous and successful stakes racers ever. Two other racing legends frequently rode him: Johnny Loftus and Willy Knapp. Horse racing will never see his like again, for stamina, longevity and ability to win under high weights.
