The barn would send out 15 winners from just 66 starts at the meet good enough for fifth in the trainer standings. He has won multiple training titles at Santa Anita, Hollywood Park and Del Mar.
He sent out Stellar Wind to victory in the 2017 Apple Blossom. In 2018, Oaklawn Handicap runner-up Accelerate, owned by top client Hronis Racing, would win the Breeders’ Cup Classic and earn the Eclipse Award for Champion Older Dirt Male that same year.
