He’s very laid back but concentrates all his efforts into winning his races.   Improving in every start, Just Howard has won his last three and has a clear affinity for Laurel Park! He made his stakes debut there last month and won the Caveat Stakes under Alex Cintron. The same pair teamed up again today to win the Find Stakes over Ghost Bay and Dothat Dance. Favorites English Minister and Talk Show Man finished fourth and fifth.

Just Howard is named for his breeder, the late Howard Bender, and is certainly flying the flag for him. He is part of a solid family of runners that Mr. Bender and his wife Sondra built up over the years.  Congratulations to owners Skeedattle Asscoiates who were all there and excited to greet Howard in the winners circle!
