Leah Gyarmati, of Queens, New York, grew up around show horses and rode jumpers, until she got a job on Belmont's backstretch during the summer of her senior year in high school. She then began to focus her time between her undergraduate and masters studies in philosophy and theology and her love of hot walking, riding and training Thoroughbreds. Gyarmati shortly pursued a doctorate in New York, before leaving school to take 222 mounts as a jockey in the late 1990s. Gyarmati has been training horses for 14 years, and is described as being patient and hands-on. In addition, she is recognized for going out of her way to take care of horses once their racing days are over.
Treadway Racing Stable
Treadway Racing Stable is owned by Jeff Treadway, of Brooklyn, New York. Treadway got involved with horse racing in 2007, following a career as a private investor in Texas, and says of racing, "It’s a beautiful sport, and one of the greatest things about it is it can turn on a dime..."
Sweet Reason is by champion Street Sense, who was the first BC Juvenile winner to go on and take the Kentucky Derby as a three-year-old.
The dark bay quickly gained notice in the breeding shed by producing multiple stakes winners from his three crops to race thus far.
Last year, the Street Sense-sired Unlimited Budget placed a major role leading up to the 2013 Kentucky Oaks, finishing third on that day, before going on to face the boys and be sixth in the Belmont Stakes.
Street Sense captured five graded events himself while in competition and placed in that same number, including the Preakness. In addition to the Derby and BC Juvenile, he also scored in the Travers.
Sweet Reason is currently her sire’s top progeny, thanks to a win in the 2013 Spinaway and placings in the Frizette as a juvenile and Gazelle as a sophomore.
Her dam is the stakes-placed Mt. Livermore mare Livermore Leslie, making Sweet Reason a half-sister to Grade 3 heroine Don’t Forget Gil.
Livermore Leslie is herself a half-sibling to Grade 3 victor Highland Gold and the multiple stakes-placed dam of Grade 2 scorer Timber Reserve and stakes diva Galloping Giraffe.
Farther back, this female family is responsible for Horse of the Year and champion two-year-old filly Moccasin as well as champions Ridan and Gamely, the latter of whom is in the Hall of Fame.
