PADDY YOUNG ADDED to his collection of hardware following another stellar campaign in 2011.
Irvin S. Naylor’s Black Jack Blues, a recent Irish-bred import which sailed to two impressive victories in his only U.S. starts, including the $250,000 Grand National, was named the National Steeplechase Association’s Lonesome Glory Champions Award winner, bestowed on the horse with the highest earnings in the current racing season. The Lonesome Glory and other awards were presented Saturday, Nov. 19, in Camden at a dinner that followed the year’s final meet, the Marion duPont Scott Colonial Cup that afternoon. Naylor was honored as champion owner after a record-breaking season, and his Lake Placid was the year’s champion novice and claimer.
