1996 Kentucky Derby winner Grindstone became the second Run for the Roses victor for jockey Jerry Bailey, and the second in a row for trainer D. Wayne Lukas. The 16-year-old stallion has stood the last 12 years at the Young family’s Overbrook Farm, which bred and raced him throughout his career. One of his best known offspring is Birdstone  , who denied Smarty Jones  ’ bid for the Triple Crown when he captured the 2004 Belmont Stakes. Birdstone has two offpring pointed for the 2009 Kentucky Derby, Mine That Bird and Summer Bird.
