The extraordinarily reclusive new owner of this 91-year-old Thoroughbred nursery has revealed little about his plans since purchasing the most public of Lexington properties, but one goal is clear: to breed Triple Crown runners and, hopefully, winners.

Oxbow, who last year became Calumet's eighth Preakness (gr. I) winner, will be relocated to the storied farm for the 2015 breeding season.
