Jockey Gary Stevens was congratulated by groom Rudy Silva in the winners’ circle on May 3, 1997, after Silver Charm won the Kentucky Derby. The horse later won the Preakness Stakes but fell just short of winning the Triple Crown, finishing second in the Belmont Stakes. Silver Charm was recently retired to Old Farms, a farm for retired thoroughbreds outside of Georgetown. Photo by Charles Bertram | Staff
