What did we win?

You should still be basking in the glow of victory this morning. Many thanks to trainers Larry & Sharon Ross, jockey Leslie Mawing, exercise rider Brian Allen, and Charlie’s groom Dagoberto Torres. It really is a team effort to get each and every horse to the races and a superb job by everyone in the Ross barn.

You may now be asking yourself, what did we actually win?

We can turn to the chart to see:

chart with win

For Charlie’s first place finish the Club earned $8,195.

Of that 10% is paid to the trainer, 10% to the jockey, and 1% stake to the grooms in the barn.







There’s an additional $5 for Prodigious Fund (retired racehorse fund) and another fee for jockey insurance of $6.50. Those will all be detailed in our Horsemen’s account statement when we review July financials next month.

So all in all you won $6,462.55! (Plus your winning tickets!)

  1. Thanks to Sharon & Larry, Brian & Mr.Torres. They take good care of Charlie & TW. My wife Shari & I appreciate their efforts. And the chance to visit them in the barn area. They had Charlie razor sharp for the race. There is nothing more exiting than a come from behind win. I was so impressed how Charlie dug deep & pushed in front of the leader at the wire. It was one of the best days, a day that I will remember all my life.

  3. Hey Sophia, et al
    We were also honored this afternoon (Saturday the 18th) with owner of the week. They announced it & ran the replay of the race, so that was pretty cool.
