Private Attack Wins Second George Brown Bowl

May 27, 2011 - 9:15 AM

For the second consecutive year, Private Attack, owned by Sportsmans Hall and trained by Alicia Murphy, took home the George Brown Bowl for the timber horse judged to have the best performances over the five Maryland spring sanctioned races. He earned wins at The Grand National and The Maryland Hunt Cup with rider Blythe Miller Davies—a feat only accomplished by four horses in the last 26 years.

The award, presented since 1985 and previously bestowed on such horses as Von Csadek, Buck Jakes, Florida Law and Welter Weight, is in honor of George Brown, a Maryland sportsman in the late 1800s and early 1900s. Brown rode in the Maryland Hunt Cup 14 times over 28 years and was MFH of the Green Spring Valley Hounds as well as serving as a steward at Maryland, Delaware and Florida tracks.
