Was AOB @ the BreedersCu? Never saw him when I was watching NBC.

Maybe he went early to Melbourne?
I've found it easier to tear up tickets at 8/1 instead of 8/5.

I’m pretty sure he was. I think I remember them talking to him on NBC (before the Turf) but I could be imagining things.

I kept looking for him in the winners circle. ;)

Glad to see this story was picked up by the TDN. We were all celebrating up here in our corner of the country. Happy time for all involved!

Jack Van Berg An Emotional Winner
Perhaps under the radar in the hustle and bustle of Breeders’ Cup Friday was the maiden-breaking score by the 2-year-old Jack Van Berg (To Honor and Serve) in the second race on championship weekend. The colt is owned by Mike Waters’ Muddy Waters Stables and is trained by Tom Van Berg, son of the late Hall of Fame trainer for whom the horse is named.

“It was surreal,” Waters said of the victory. “I’ve been going to the races for 40 years, but I never experienced anything like that. It was inexplicable. There were people crying, but I was laughing. I was just overcome with joy.”

A lifelong racing fan, Waters has been a racehorse owner for just about five years now. He is in the commercial flooring business and is based in Seattle, where he hooked up with trainer Mike Puhich. It was Puhich who introduced Waters to Jack Van Berg.

“Alysheba was my favorite horse,” Waters recalled. “I was at Oaklawn and Mike Puhich told me he wanted to introduce me to someone, but I didn’t know who. He asked me who my favorite horse was and I said, ‘Alysheba.’ Jack winked at me and said, ‘Come on in.'”
