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?

  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.
