Though he is currently second to Chad Brown in terms of winners, he’s hitting the board at an amazing 56%, and seems unable to miss with his two-year-old firsters.

  • Omaha Beach, and a Tale of Three Broodmare Sires

    Omaha Beach’s stretch duel with Improbable made the Arkansas Derby-G1 an exciting race.
