Ward set to join Washington Racing Hall of Fame


AUBURN, Wash. – Before he became a sensation as the nation’s leading apprentice, and long before he became a trainer with the audacity to beat the Europeans on their own turf, Wesley Ward was a scrappy kid in small-town Washington with outsized dreams and a smile that could light up a room. On Saturday night at Emerald Downs, Northwestern horsemen will salute a native son when Ward is inducted into the Washington Racing Hall of Fame.
