String King preps for Louisiana Champions Day Turf


By now, String King must know the 335-mile route from the River Point Equestrian Center in Haughton, La., to Fair Grounds well enough that he could walk it on his own rather than ride in a trailer, but of course, it was a horse trailer that Charlie Smith – the breeder, owner, and trainer of String King – used to take the horse from River Point to New Orleans a couple of weeks ago.
