Stephen Oldford made a winter vacation trip from his home at Croswell, Michigan to South Florida a memorable one on the Saturday, January 7 card at Pompano Park.

Oldford, 53, is an avid competitor that has travelled extensively in Canada and the United States for the CKG Billings Amateur Driving Series in recent years. He made the most of his Pompano drive by taking nine-year-old veteran Armbro Doyle right down the road in 1:59.3 over $5,000 claiming company. Owner and trainer Scott West of Vernon, New York stepped aside from bike duty so Oldford could have the mount on this occasion behind the 22-time career winner, who has banked over $291,000. Deep Seas, driven by his owner David Yarock, was a hard closing second and Joe Pennacchio's Mr Taurus was third.

It was the first weekly event of the New Year for the Florida Amateur Driving Club (FADC). In 2011, the organization reached a major milestone when surpassing $100,000 in donations to charitable equine causes locally since the membership donates back the customary five percent driving commissions.
