Lexi, Charlie, and Championships

Tucson, AZ (KOLD) - Living in Texas, you'd expect to see a lot of horses. Except that Charlie is not just any horse. He's a chestnut colt, whose specialty is jumping. A horse who happens to be the great great grandson of Triple Crown winner Secretariat. He's also owned by the family of Wildcat gymnast Lexi Mills, a senior who is set to compete at the NCAA Women's Gymnastics National Championship later this week. And just as Charlie inherited the competitive gene, as you're about to find out, so too did Lexi.
