Bobby Stewart would be my pick for the best jockey to ever ride at Assiniboia Downs. - ASD HistoryHigh praise, but well deserved.
A recent blog post talks about Bobby Stewart's career, and it's amazing to realize he came from our area. But you never know who will rise above the rest, or where they may hail from.
Be sure to check out an earlier blog post about Bobby, and the honor bestowed in remembrance of him at the inauguration of the Bobby Stewart Memorial Stakes in 2010.
