Smarty Jones Crew Returns to Churchill Saturday

(from Churchill Downs notes)
Six weeks after the thrilling victory by Smarty Jones in the 130th running of the Kentucky Derby (gr. I), owners Pat and Roy Chapman and trainer John Servis make a triumphant return to Churchill Downs on Saturday to be honored for their Derby win and their exciting run at the Visa Triple Crown.

The Chapmans and Servis will return to Churchill Downs to accept their engraved trophies that go to the winning owner, breeder and trainer of the Kentucky Derby.

The Chapmans and Servis will also take part in an autograph session scheduled from noon until 1:30 p.m. (all times Eastern) as Churchill Downs celebrates Smarty Jones' remarkable Triple Crown bid. The autograph session with the Chapman's and Servis will be held on the ground level of the grandstand adjacent to the paddock runway.

Due to the anticipated crowd size and the limited time available, patrons are asked to bring only one item for signing. The first 2,500 patrons in line that day will receive a complimentary 8x10 photograph of Derby winner Smarty Jones.
