Oaklawn: Silver Charm's groom with The Factor


Rudy Silva, who was the groom for Silver Charm when he won the Kentucky Derby, would like to get back to the big dance this year with another gray horse in his care, The Factor.

"I hope so," said Silva.

Silva and The Factor are at Oaklawn for the Grade 2, $300,000 Rebel, which goes as the 10th on Saturday. Other horses Silva has groomed include Grade 1 winners Captain Steve and Bob and John, both of whom also ran in the Kentucky Derby.
