Golden Schlong Gonzales: The King Of Turtle Racing

MARINA DEL REY, Calif. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – One speedy turtle is feared by its peers and beloved by humans.

“Golden Schlong Gonzales” is top turtle at the weekly turtle races at Brennan’s Pub in Marina Del Rey, California.

Every Thursday, bar patrons bring their own turtles or rent one from the bar and race them on a track, but emcee Uriel Matus says it’s tough to win if Golden Schlong Gonzales is competing.

The reptile has been the pub’s “house turtle” for the past 10 years and has won hundreds of races.

Matus says, “He’s feisty and quick. We bought him at a pet store because he just took off running.”

Golden Schlong is often requested ahead of time by patrons who want to use him in a race, even though he’s prone to sabotage.

According to Matus, other turtles sometimes “jockey against” him and pin him down on the track before the race even starts.

Still, Matus assures that the races are clean, and there’s no snapping or steroid use among the turtles.
