(Swaps with Willie Shoemaker - Kentucky Derby)
At the time, Sherman was working as an exercise boy for trainer Mesh Tenney. Sherman, in fact, traveled in the same train car with Swaps as he made his journey from California to Kentucky. Not bad for an 18-year-old boy? It's fitting then that Sherman made a visit to Swaps' grave site at the near-by Kentucky Derby Museum. Sherman was a young stable hand, then jockey, and now uber-successful trainer. Hard work pays off in the long-run, with a little luck added.
