Just Might’s Win An Emotional One For Lovell, Griffon

It was an emotional winner’s circle celebration Saturday night as trainer Michelle Lovell was able to celebrate with her 86-year-old co-owner and breeder Dr. Robert “Pappy” Griffon and his family for their homebred Just Might’s gritty front-running score in the $275,000 Louisville Thoroughbred Society.

“Pappy is the greatest,” Lovell said. “He’s so kind and generous. He’s like family to me and that’s what makes it so special when you have a horse like this. You get to celebrate with family.”

Just Might, a 5-year-old son of Justin Phillip, is out of Lovell and Griffon’s mare Dynamite Babe. Griffon and Lovell have been partners on several horses since the beginning of Lovell’s training career in the early 2000s.

Griffon, a Friendswood, Texas native, has been able to travel to Churchill Downs in Louisville, Ky., in the past but described his latest trip as, “the best one of his life.”
