Didn't he kick the crap out of Jim Marohn after he lost a big race with Seahawk Hanover ?

SEATRAIN WAS SUCH A NUT!  SO TALENTED BUT WANTED EVERYTHING HIS WAY.  HE REMINDED ME OF SEABISCUIT.   THERE WAS NOT MUCH TO HIM----GREAT GAITED---SLICK AND A MOTOR THAT HE USED WHENEVER ONLY HE WANTED TO USE IT!   THE TYPICAL MEADOW SKIPPER GAIT----COVERED LOTS OF GROUND FOR SUCH A SMALL HORSE.   WE ENDED UP BUYING THE HORSE FOR $50,000.00 DUE TO HIS U-TURNS!   WE TOOK HIM TO LIBERTY BELL AND RACED HIM THERE IN THE OPENS!!!   ONE THE THE SWEETEST HORSES EVER IN THE STALL.  THIS HORSE WAS TOUGH AND HAD HIS OWN MIND FOR A LITTLE GUY!   WENT FROM BENNIE DRIVING HIM TO LEW WILLIAMS!   THE HORSE WAS NOT AFRAID OF EITHER AND CHALLENGED THEM REGULARLY!!   BENNIE AND LEW SWUNG FROM OPPOSITE SIDES BUT MY GOD---YOU COULD HEAR THE STINGING SOUNDS LEAVING OR COMING DOWN THE LANE!

RIP BENNIE!   YOU GAVE MY FAMILY SOME GREAT MEMORIES AND WE WILL ALWAYS BE GRATEFUL FOR THOSE THRILLS!

It was always a thrill to see Benny go 3 wide down the backside at RR but mostly at Yonkers!

Herve told Benny before the James b dancer , Benny you got the French rail today meaning the 8 hole and i aint waiting for you ! Benny left and broke and Herve went down the road winning easily.  After the race Benny told Herve you had the homefield advantage.   They loved each other .

He didn´t get the nickname for ¨carving one up¨ not saying he didn´t once in a while. It started when he was called a  ¨young whipper snapper¨ I always asked him if he was staying out of trouble and he´d say ¨I haven´t found her yet¨. Sorry Chris

I was also told it was not for his use of the whip. In 1979 a man I knew a big party guy and bar owner who ran with Benny told me it was for manhood.
