    With Awesome Gem arriving at his new home at Old Friends April 7 I thought it would be an appropriate time to reprint a column I wrote in 2010 on this old warrior and the person whose life he changed.

  • TOBA March Member of the Month

    Until now, the Whithams' best runners have primarily been older horses, but 2016 marked a change. In addition to McCraken, they own Linda, a four-year-old filly who captured the Mrs. Revere (Gr. II) at Churchill Downs last year.

  • Brian Hernandez Jr.

    Hernandez Has Momentum, Confidence on His Side
