West Point eclipses single year win record
With a victory by Crimson Stag in the $100,000 Louisiana Champions Day Juvenile at the Fair Grounds, West Point Thoroughbreds eclipsed their single year win mark tallying their thirty-third victory with still three weeks to go in the year.
The new mark surpasses the thirty-two wins in 2002. West Point President Terry Finley said, "It couldn't have come in a better race. A two-year-old running $100,000 stake is not a bad way to break the mark. Most importantly, I am really proud of the number of different horses that have won this year to comprise those thirty-three wins. A lot of partners have been to the winner's circle with a lot of different horses this year, and there's no bigger thrill than seeing the people that have put their faith in you having success. That's why we do it. That's what it's all about."
West Point had previously eclipsed their single year earnings mark back in November, and have now had their horses earn over $1,280,000 in 2004.
