Chuck wrote that back in the early '60's way before he went with 
Blakey.  He used to play it at the State St. Lounge in Rochester, NY 
with his brother Gap (piano), Frank Pulara (Bass), Joe Romano (Tenor) 
and Vinnie Reggerio on drums.  It was a great time for jazz.  Yes it 
was inspired by the ponies.  I did a big band chart on it for Buddy 
(Rich) early on in my association with him.
