Sagamore Farm

Sagamore Farm, established in 1925, is located in Glyndon, Maryland.  Throughout its existence, Sagamore has been internationlly recognized as a premier breeding and training facility for thoroughbred horses; even the Queen of England kept a broodmare at Sagamore during the mid-1900s.  Sagamore's most notable equine was Native Dancer - a horse that won 21 races out of the 22 that he raced, including wins in the Preakness and Belmont Stakes in 1953.  The farm is currently operated by Kevin Plank, a native of Maryland and the CEO and founder of Under Armour.  Plank acquired Sagamore in May 2007.
