In the 8th race Sunday Jack Van Berg most likely saddled his last horse at Santa Anita. And while the track specifically didn't make note of it by having Trevor say anything, it was nice that at least a few people around the walking ring gave him a bit of applause. Most only saw the 0 for 67 line in the pps as someone who hadn't won a race at the meet, but here was a trainer that not only had Alysheba & Gate Dancer, but has over 68 hundred wins & is a Hall Of Famer. He may not have had the stock these past few years, but some of us remember-
As someone said, for a trainer it stinks to get old.
Godspeed Mr. Van Berg, it was an honor to have you here.
