One of the most popular chestnuts on the scene, Shiraz, has officially made his return to work after suffering a shoulder strain at Rolex this spring.
Colleen Rutledge and “Luke” went over to Sharon White’s farm last week for some lessons with Jimmy Wofford, and Luke looked positively gleeful as he bounced through some simple exercises.
