D. Wayne Lukas
Hall of Famer D. Wayne Lukas is a four-time Kentucky Derby winner, and 43rd Derby starter in 2009. 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. Lukas has trained a record of 24 Thoroughbred champions and three Eclipse Awards Horse of the Year winners. He's tied with Sunny Jim Fitzsimmons for the most Triple Crown race victories, 13. Beginning in 1994 Lukas won a record six consecutive Triple Crown races.
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.
