Virginia-Bred Greyvitos Named Remington Park Horse Of The Year

Greyvitos, the talented gray who won the $400,000 Springboard Mile by 2-1/4 lengths, has been voted the 2017 Remington Park Horse of the Meeting. The seasonal titles are determined by a vote of media that covered the season along with track and racing department officials.

Owned by Triple B Farms of North Hollywood, Calif. and trained by Adam Kitchingman, Greyvitos was ridden to victory in the Springboard by National Racing Hall of Fame jockey Victor Espinoza. Greyvitos, a Virginia-bred colt by Malibu Moon from the Najran mare Snow Top Mountain, overcame his outside number 12 post in the Springboard, to take over the top 2-year-old race of the season with just under a half-mile remaining. Greyvitos set a stakes record for the Springboard Mile, crossing the finish in 1:37.14 over a fast track.
