Warren Eves | April 15, 2011

By Warren Eves           First time starter Renegade Band won the opener April 14h at Keeneland with authority–they had to cash a gamble.           If owner-breeder David Jacobs is a bettor we’d have to believe he cashed in big on his long striding three-year-old filly Renegade Storm.  She ran too good not [...]
