Tom has been a horse owner of Quarter Horses and Thoroughbreds for most of his adult life. His son, Chris, has chosen one horse annually for his father to buy for the past five years. With Chris’ guidance, Tom has purchased three graded stakes winners.
Santiva, their Kentucky Derby 137 hopeful, was victorious in the Kentucky Jockey Club Stakes (GII) at Churchill Downs and finished second in Keeneland’s Grade I Breeders’ Futurity.
Their other graded stakes winners are Elite Squadron who took the Churchill Downs Stakes (GII) in 2004, and Pretty Prolific winner of the Grade III Sugar Swirl Stakes.
