Derby Contenders

Edward "Rusty" Brown, Victor Flores, Henry Hernandez

Majority owner Edward “Rusty” Brown fell in love with horses at a very early age while attending races with his father at Saratoga Race Course near his hometown. Brown’s first job was cleaning the stables for an owner and this is when he realized his dream of owning racehorses. Victor Flores, much like Brown, attended races with his father at age 11 at Santa Anita. The group was linked together by trainer Jeff Bonde and Twice the Appeal is their first major stakes winner.
