In case you haven’t heard the news on Twitter, Southern California jockey Chantal Sutherland is celebrating her engagement to Dan Kruse of Monrovia, CA. Sutherland tweeted the news to followers in recent days:
“Just had a nice brunch with my fiancé! Oops forgot to tell you that Dan Kruse proposed to me New Years Eve and I said YES . . . he’s a STAR!” Kruse is a member of the family that owns Kruse Meats in Monrovia.”
It’s well-known that Sutherland was previously engaged to jockey Mike Smith, but the couple broke off their engagement in June 2010 and in August 2011 participated in a match race at Del Mar called the “Battle of the Exes,” won by Smith.
