I wanted to include this excellent and rare picture of Do Lishus winning the Grey Stakes Race at Woodbine, September 25, 1976.
This exciting win was the second stakes race victory in my father's training career. Also sadly it was the last stakes win. In the great career of Chris Rogers. Chris lost his battle win cancer on October 29, 1976. At the age of 52.
It was a highlight of my horse racing career. To watch this exceptional jockey ply his trade. Chris Rogers will always be remembered as a great horseman, athlete and competitor.
For more information on this race. Review the post on Do Lishus. Also I will be doing a feature on Chris Rogers in my jockey section coming up on my blog.
