Stute, Kilmer and the Topless Donut Shop

Trainer Mel Stute, who loves a good joke and a good story, was in fine form Friday morning at Clockers Corner. He had a great anecdote involving his friend Billy Kilmer. Kilmer, an NFL quarterback, played for the San Francisco 49ers, the New Orleans Saints, and the Washington Redskins.

"Billy had some horses with me, and we had some great names for them," Stute said. "His number was 17, so we had one named Bold Seventeen. And when he threw passes, they had this kind of a wobble to them, so we had one called Wobbly Pass."

Well, it seems the two men were in Florida with some horses, and Kilmer decided to have a little fun with Stute. "He knew I always brought donuts to the barn," Stute related. "And he said, 'Why don't you stop in here and get some donuts?' It was a place called 'Topless Something Donuts,' and I had no idea what it was."

Apparently it was one of a chain of donut shops in the area that featured topless servers... "The girl had her back to me," Stute said. "And when she turned around, I almost fell off the stool!"
