D. Wayne Lukas, legendary Thoroughbred trainer, has still got it at 88

He still wakes up every morning at 3:30 a.m. to go to the barn. He still rides the pony every day to watch his horses train. And while his business may no longer be the coast-to-coast giant as he’s reached his late 80s, D. Wayne Lukas is still the Stetson-and-sunglasses-wearing embodiment of what is thoroughbred racing.

Train them hard.

Try them.

Maybe, just maybe, win a big one.

That never changed for Lukas, from the time he won his first Preakness with Codex in 1980 until he did it again on Saturday for the seventh time with Seize The Gray.
