Rocket Twentyone Still Cup Bound

The first time Tom Howard attended a Breeders' Cup was at Churchill Downs in 1988.


"That was Alysheba's year. I watched it from right back here in the bleachers," Howard said. "That was the best place to watch, because you could see all the horses going over to the paddock."


Alysheba was housed in Barn 32 not only for the Breeders' Cup, but the previous year when he won the Kentucky Derby. Fast forward to today, and Howard has Rocket Twentyone walking in the same shedrow.


Owned by Frank Fletcher, Rocket Twentyone is undefeated in two starts and coming off a victory in the Grade 3 Arlington-Washington Lassie on September 10. She shipped to Kentucky on September 28 and was housed at the Trackside Training Center before coming over to Churchill Downs.
