GRAND VALLEY HORSE WINS COLORADO DERBY

By Bob Silbernagel

Sally Porter of Grand Junction sent notice that her horse, Cheatin a Little, won the Colorado Derby at Arapaho Park on the Front Range Sunday.

Cheatin a Little is trained by Sally's daughter, Sarina Obergfell, and he had to overcome the undefeated Danzip to win the race. According to an article from the Daily Racing Form, Cheatin a Little overtook Danzip in the stretch in the 1 1/16 mile race. He won $31,050 for his efforts.

Sally has long been involved in the horse-racing world while living in the Grand Valley. She is a former director of the Mesa County Animal Shelter. Congratulations to Sally, Sarina and Cheatin a Little.
