Well, we didn’t win. The distance is pushing it for Tapit’s but Ring Weekend gave it a good try and ran a very commendable race to finish 5th.
The result continues to be a good feeling story with the horse being a ‘cheapy’ and trained by the oldest trainer to win the Derby. Incredibly the second horse was trained by a trainer who only has 4 horses in training and the third horse’s trainer was 85! Motto: never give up, you never know.
Art Sherman has been very hospitable and well-spoken throughout the week and if he were to go on and win the Triple Crown it would be a very popular result and hopefully will put good racing on the map again. Congratulations to all involved with him.
Oops, nearly forgot to mention that Graham trained his Grandfather, California Chrome’s that is!
