McPeek's best finish in the Kentucky Derby came in 1995 with Tejano Run, who ran second. He won the 2002 Belmont Stakes with Sarava the longest shot on the board at 70-1. His horse, Noble’s Promise, finished fifth in the 2010 Kentucky Derby. Tejano Run became McPeek’s first standout runner in 1995. The colt was purchased for $20,000 and made $1.1 million on the racetrack helping showcase McPeek's talents in purchasing horses and developing them into talented runners. In 2005, McPeek took time away from training horses to focus on being a bloodstock agent. He originally purchased Curlin for $57,000 in 2007 for owners Midnight Cry Stable, who later sold Curlin to Jess Jackson for an estimated $3.5 million. McPeek returned to training in 2006 and opened his own training farm in Lexington called Magdalena. McPeek graduated from University of Kentucky and went to New York to interview for a position as a stockbroker, but instead went to work for Hall of Fame trainer Shug McGaughey as a hot walker. His father Ron McPeek owned horses and was Ken’s first client when he took out a trainer’s license in 1985. The Mcpeek trained Golden Ticket won the G-1 Travers in 2012. Ken tied for leading trainer at the Churchill Downs 2012 Fall Meet. Top stakes winners in the McPeek stable have included, Repent, Take Charge Lady, Harlan's Holiday, She's A Devil Due, Bizzy Caroline, Kathmanblu, Salty Strike and Pure Fun.
Landaluce Educe Stables
Ray Struder, owner of Landaluce Educe Stables, resides in Knoxville, Tennessee. Struder was an avid horse racing fan for decades, before purchasing his first race horse just four years ago. His stable name, Landaluce Educe, is latin for "Landaluce remembered" - Landaluce was a champion filly offspring of Triple Crown winner Seattle Slew, which Struder wholly loved after watching race in 1982. Struder only purchases fillies, and his trainer says of him, "I don't think I've seen anyone as passionate."
Hurstland Farm, Inc.
Rosalind is by Grade 2 winner Broken Vow out of the Theatrical mare Critics Acclaim.
Broken Vow started off sprinting but quickly graduated to longer distances, taking a pair of graded contests going nine furlongs during his career and also running third in the Gulfstream Park Handicap at 1 1/4 miles.
Broken Vow’s offspring have had no trouble emulating the stallion, with the likes of Grade 1 winners Sassy Image and Cotton Blossom both competing, and winning, at a mile or longer. Fellow Grade 1 queen Unbridled Belle was victorious all the way up to 10 furlongs during her time on track, and Cyber Secret scored in last year’s nine-furlong Oaklawn Handicap by 5 3/4 lengths.
Rosalind is a half-sister to stakes runner-up American Diva, and the duo’s third dam is the unraced Tim Tam mare Tim Marie.
That mare foaled, among others, multiple Grade 1 hero Life’s Hope and Grade 2-placed stakes victress Little Happiness. The latter’s descendants include multiple Group 1 winners A Little Kiss and Shamekha.
Others of note in this female family are champion grass mare and two-time French champion older mare Trillion, and Grade 3-winner and Kentucky Derby-placed Partez.
