What would Carolina Cup day be without a victory from one of Jonathan Sheppard’s jumpers? In Saturday’s 84th running of the Camden spring classic, the National Racing Hall of Fame trainer and part-time Camden resident saddled a pair of winners on the undercard including hitting the exacta in the $40,000 Life’s Illusion Stakes for Fillies and Mares. Owned and trained by Sheppard who, along with William L. Pape were the breeders, Pram made the two-mile, seven jump Life’s Illusion in a time of 3:44 in wire-to-wire fashion with Gerard Galligan in the saddle.
