Local horse set to run in Longacres Mile
By COLE COSGROVE
Jumron Won, a chestnut 4-year-old Washington-bred gelding, is scheduled to join 11 other race horses in the $250,000 Longacres Mile Sunday at Emerald Downs.
Hes doing really good this year, said trainer Bud Klokstad. He acts just like he always does.
Jumron Won was raised and owned by Bill Segale of Federal Way and Ray Rosatto of Des Moines.
Jumron Won ranks fourth in all-time stakes winners at Emerald Downs, having won seven. The record is nine. Jumron Won also ranks fifth in all-time money earners at Emerald Downs, having earned $267,385 in its career.
Its quite thrilling when you raise a horse and then see it win, Segale said last year after winning the Seattle Slew Handicap. You never know how the horse is going to turn out. Ive seen horses people pay half a million dollars for that cant run a jump. (Jumron Won) just keeps getting better with age.
Jumron Won won four stakes races in 2001 en route to earning Top 3-year-old Male honors.
Jumron Won was victorious in three stakes races in 2000 and was the top Juvenile Male of 2000.
