In a year where I'm having a pretty bad start overall, I need to share this to make me feel better about things!!!

Here are some Grade 1 wins for AW Routers.

Week 2 Day 5 - Bennie and the Jets wins the Year 58 Pegasus Route for Ronnie Dee. It's Ronnie's 6th AW Route G1 win. This puts him in a tie with Bryan Price, Lee Cara, Louise Bayou and Randall Allen for 16th place in AWR G1 wins.

Week 3 Day 1 - Carouse becomes the 2nd G1 winner by Buncha Yahoos in the Winter Derby. It's Laura Ferguson's 5th AW Route Grade 1 win. Also interesting is that after all this time, this is Paynter's first ever G1 winner as a Dam Sire.

Week 3 Day 1 - Second Vent wins the Winter Oaks. It is my 19th AW Route G1 win, only 17 behind Todd Lucas who is 2nd all-time. She is by Le Vent Se Leve out of a Wizarding War mare.

Also, the dam of Carouse (Paynt the Skye) is a half-sister to the dam of Second Vent (Second Stain). I found that to be pretty interesting!

Wow, I didn't expect this, Santa Susana looked unbeatable, but that's why we love (and sometimes hate) the Sim- it always stays unpredictable! Congrats on the win, Garret!

Just finished up Week 4.

Thomas Fleming became the 118th person to reach 50 career AW Route wins. Congrats Thomas!

That was the only milestone for this week. There are quite a few people getting close though!

These updates are, by far, my favorite thing in the forum.

Week 6 saw Christophe Desjardin become the 6th person to reach 700 AW Route wins in the SIM.

Congrats to Kasie Gillespie and Premium Toothpaste for winning the AW Route World Heavyweight Championship, beating Cupids Inspiration in the Parade Stakes.

Congrats to Tiyoun Long and Astral Magic on winning the G1 McBride Championship Cup.
Congrats to Andrew James and Takeshi Kovacs on winning the G1 Exhibition Stakes.
Congrats to Randall Allen and Clarence Nash on winning the G1 All Weather Derby.
Congrats to Randall Allen and Baptist Ridge on winning the G1 All Weather Oaks.

This is the first time that someone has won the Oaks and the Derby in the same year. Quite an accomplishment for Randall Allen.

I saw that I won both the oaks and the derby this year. I have been really blessed after building an aw barn for the last 15 or so sim years. I'm not as good as some of the people listed in this thread, but it was nice to pickup a couple of big wins.

Thanks for the congrats Garret and Aaron. I really appreciate it!
