Winning the Preakness is great, which was won by a great trainer, Dale Romans. Congratulations for a great victory!!! From Albert Pumila, a WPT partner with Dancing Compass and Currahee Assault. What a great traniner to have training our horses. Good luck in the future.
I'm always following your horses and had big hopes for KC in the Preakness. I want to add my congrats to Mr. Romans on his Preakness win. I see he also trains one of my favorite WP horses Mr. Tribute. By the way where is Mr. Tribute, I haven't seen him lately on your racing lists?
Thanks for the well wishes. Mr. Tribute is training on a farm after a brief vacation.
