Churchill Downs: Court family takes the sixth race with Court's Journey


The family of jockey Jon Court - and the rider himself - teamed to win the sixth race at Churchill Downs Thursday with the aptly named Court's Journey ($10.60).

A 3-year-old son of Good Journey, owned and bred by Court's wife, Krystal, was ridden by Court and trained by Krystal's father, Jinks Fires.

The win in the sixth race was the first of the horse's career. It came vs. maiden $40,000 claimers.

Jon Court and Fires will team up again in Saturday's Kentucky Derby with Archarcharch.
