ROMAN EARNS FIRST CAREER VICTORY

Rider Constantino Roman guided longshot Arrested By Duffy, trained by Emmagene K. Schwan, to the winner’s circle in Wednesday’s second race at Hawthorne. That was the first riding victory for the young Mr. Roman and it came in only the fifth mount of his career.

This 20-year-old grew up in Guerrero, Mexico but has been working horses and galloping horses for trainer Brian Williamson and owner Nancy Vanier for the last four years.

“I want to thank everybody that has helped me to get to this point but especially Brian Williamson,” said Roman through an interpreter.

When asked about the hazing that generally goes on when a rider earns his first win, Constantino beamed. “It took me about a half hour to clean up.”

You could tell that he loved every minute of it.
