Silver Wagon Gets First Winner

Silver Wagon won the Carter Handicap and the Hopeful Stakes.

Two-time grade I winner Silver Wagon came through with his first winner when his son D C’s Mission scored at Arapahoe Park July 22. Campaigned by D. Chadwick Calvert, D C’s Mission won the 5 1/2-furlong race by three-quarters of a length in 1:06.92.

Bred in Kentucky by H & E Ranch, D C’s Mission is the third winner out of the stakes-placed Din's Dancer mare Mom’s Day.
