D. Wayne Lukas
Hall of Famer D. Wayne Lukas is a four-time Kentucky Derby winner and will saddle his record 48Th Derby starter in 2015. A four-time Eclipse Award winner (1985-87 and 1994), Lukas is the all-time leading money winner and the first to reach the $200 million plateau. He saddled a record six straight Triple Crown race winners starting in 1994 and has a record 14 overall winners of Triple Crown events. The 78-year-old horseman, known in racing circles as the “Coach,” is also responsible for 20 individual Breeders’ Cup winners and has led the trainers’ standings by money earned on 14 occasions during his illustrious career.
Antley, a Ft. Lauderdale native, was a two time Kentucky Derby winner aboard Strike the Gold (1991) and Charismatic (1999). In 1985 he was the US Champion Jockey. He also won the Preakness Stakes in 1999. In 1987 he was the first rider to win 9 races on 9 different horses in a single day, and in 1989 he won at least once race for 64 consecutive days.
In 1991, M.C. Hammer established Oaktown Stable that would eventually have nineteen Thoroughbred racehorses. That year, Lite Light won the Kentucky Oaks. His D. Wayne Lukas-trained colt Dance Floor won the Kentucky Jockey Club Stakes and the Breeders' Futurity Stakes in 1991, then the following year won the Fountain of Youth Stakes and finished 3rd in the 1992 Kentucky Derby.
