“I’m happy I stayed to see Smoke House win the Gr 2 Bob Magness,” said Kathy. “It was a thrilling race as he still is green (this was only his 6th race) and eager and wants to run off the front end and going 1 ¼ miles- that’s pretty hard to accomplish. This is a truly exceptional horse in many ways and as he matures I think he can only get better.”
