It has been an exciting weekend for Greeley’s Conquest with two first time winners in less than 24 hours! The first victory came Friday, June 12th for Never Heard in a $10,500 maiden claiming event at Prairie Meadows. The dark bay gelding won by two lengths in just his second career start after running third in his debut three weeks prior. Congratulations to owner/breeder Lynden Branch, trainer Kenny Smith, and jockey Dusty Ryder Shephard. The second victory came Saturday, June 13th for Ice Cream Wagon in a $8,600 maiden Quarter Horse race (yes, you read that correctly!) at Ruidoso Downs. Bred and originally owned by Toby Keith’s Dream Walkin’ Farm, the chestnut gelding now belongs to Grissom Racing, Inc. (O.D. Grissom), Bailey Herwig, and Steve Herwig. Ice Cream Wagon was making his second start against Quarter Horses going 880 yards for trainer O. Dwain Grissom with Jesiere Medina up. Hats off to these two winners and their connections, we look forward to seeing them next time out!
