How do you get a classic winner? Do you build up a broodmare band, then nurture the resulting offspring and race them as homebreds?

Combing the sales for classic prospects is a viable option. In fact, during the past 15 years, most winners of the Kentucky Derby (gr. I), Preakness (gr. I), and Belmont Stakes (gr. I) were offered at public auction prior to their classic triumphs.
