MILITARY VET COLVIN RIDES FIRST CAREER WINNER IN THURSDAY’S OPENER


BALTIMORE, 05-02-13---Samantha Colvin captured her first lifetime win this afternoon when Rocket Ninetyeight won today’s opener at Pimlico Race Course. The 26-year-old grew up in Williamsport, PA and spent nearly a decade in the United States Army in signals intelligence.

Rocket Ninetyeight stalked the pace, moved three-wide into the stretch, took command and drew away. The $16,000 claiming maiden won by 3-3/4 lengths for owner-trainer Calvin Barth and paid $18.80.

“I’m here to ride and to win,” said Colvin, who was victorious on her fifth career mount.
