Two early entries are:

An earnest young writer called Scott
Went off to the track like a shot
He got showered with shale
At each ground without fail
with his pen and his pad like as not.

[Graham Russel]

A Champion rider called Mauger,
By now is quite an old stauger,
But he’s so in demand
throughout all the land,
We should issue him with a pauger.

[The Reverend Michael Whawell]

    I do hope to have a go at penning a semi-suitable limerick. Good thing you set a healthy deadline.
