Turfway fall honors



The Enquirer and wire reports

Jockey Rafael Bejarano, trainer Bernie Flint and owners Ken and Sarah Ramsey took top honors at the Northern Kentucky track's fall meeting.

Flint was leading trainer for the eighth straight meet and his 18th overall with nine wins, nine seconds and six thirds from 36 starters for purses of $118,428.

The Ramseys led all owners with five wins from 12 starters and $72,643.

Bejarano topped all riders with 27 wins, 18 seconds and 20 thirds from 97 starts.

KEENELAND: Janis R. Witham's Solar Echo has arrived with Hall of Famer Ron McAnally, who personally will supervise her training for Saturday's $500,000 Grade I Queen Elizabeth II Challenge Cup.

Solar Echo was narrowly beaten by the highly regarded Dessert in the Del Mar Oaks. "One more jump and she would have won the Oaks," said McAnally, a Covington native. "She should be very tough in the QE II."

Solar Echo has won three races in five lifetime starts while amassing earnings of $675,880.
