It was a very big night in downtown Baltimore last evening for Skeedattle Associates’ JUST HOWARD. The Renaissance Awards, held at the fabulous Sagamore Pendry Hotel in Fells Point, celebrated the Maryland-bred champions for 2017. The 4-year-old son of English Channel captured the title in three divisions: Champion 3-Year-Old Male, Champion Turf Horse, and Maryland-bred Horse of the Year!
Just Howard had a terrific season in Maryland last year, winning the Caveat Stakes, Find Stakes and the Commonwealth Derby. The affable chestnut colt, a barn favorite, received his early training in South Carolina at Franklin G. Smith, Sr.’s Elloree Training Center.
Graham and Anita were on hand to help Howard’s owners accept the awards.
Congratulations to all of the happy connections!
