Derby Contenders

Lee Lewis

Lee Lewis is from Lubbock Texas and was introduced to racing by his father who raced quarter horses with D Wayne Lukas. He got in to the thoroughbred business on the advice of Lukas who purchased his first horses at auction for him. One of those was Personal Hope who would go on to finish 4th in the 1993 Kentucky Derby under the training of former Lukas assistant Mark Hennig. Hennig and Lewis have had continued success with many additional stakes winners including Sierra Diablo.
