Co-owners and breeders Judy and Bud Johnston congratulated jockey Elvis Trujillo after Acceptance’s victory in the $200,000 King Glorious Stakes Sunday, December 14, 2014 at Los Alamitos Race Course. Acceptance is trained by Don Warren for the Johnstons and co-owner Robert Riggio.
Undefeated in three starts, the colt’s career is off to a brilliant start. He won the one-mile King Glorious Stakes for California-breds by three lengths over 8-1 Pulmarack.
Acceptance’s first three wins have Bud Johnston looking forward to the races that lead to the Triple Crown.
“It’s exciting to have a young horse that has a shot,” he said. “You can only dream about that.”
