Clifford Sise, Jr. says that a normal trainer, without the consistent backing of big-money owners, will only get a superstar horse about ever 20 years.

Ward Looks for Improved Lifestyle in Sprint

After winning his first two races by a combined margin of more than 23 lengths, Lifestyle has lost five in a row.
