History

Tommy Laughran-Next Heavy Champion – Strength Magazine – October, 1928

The story is handed down from the recent war of a Southern “gem-mum” of decidedly dusky hue, who had a very fine record as a mule breaker in an army encampment. So great was his ability in making fractious mules submit to harness and directions that his fame spread far and wide; and so it was that a particularly mule-headed mule, one that had resisted all efforts on the part of other trainers to control him, was delivered to him for “treatment.” He approached the said mule from the proper direction for the maximum of safety, but somehow or other the mule beat him to the draw and kicked him into the middle of the next week.
