Wayne Lukas he handled such horses as Kentucky Derby winners Thunder Gulch (2005) and Grindstone (2006). His knowledge of the thoroughbred industry along with the lifelong friends he has developed at the track have made for a great combination of business and pleasure here in Saratoga County.

"I have a strong belief that a successful community creates a positive environment for your children."
