River of Aces an Essex family affair


AUBURN, Wash. – River of Aces has been an in-house production from the very start – she was bred by the husband-and-wife team of Dean and Judy Anne Essex, and is trained by their son Charles Essex. The family owned her sire, Sam’s Ace, and River of Aces was foaled at the family farm in Granite Falls, Wash.
