WinStar Farm’s Super Saver wins the 136th Kentucky Derby!
Congratulations to our Firm’s client WinStar Farm, the owner and breeder of the colt Super Saver who won the 136th Kentucky Derby in Louisville on Saturday, May 1st.
Super Saver is by Maria's Mon (now deceased), owned by Josephine Abercrombie’s Pin Oak Farm (also a Greenebaum client). The colt’s dam, Supercharger, is a daughter ofA.P. Indy and a full sister to WinStar’s Bluegrass Cat, who ran second for WinStar in the 2006 Kentucky Derby. Jockey Calvin Borel, the winner of three out of the past four Kentucky Derbies, made an outstanding ride on this colt on a sloppy track. This was the first Derby victory for trainer Todd Pletcher.
WinStar Farm is located in Woodford County, Kentucky, and was established by owners Bill Casner and Kenny Trout in early 2000. Messrs. Troutt and Casner founded Excel Communications in Dallas, a company that went public in 1996.
Bill Casner is also a founding member of The Race For Education, a national scholarship foundation that provides educational opportunities to children of racing's backside and farm workers. Greenebaum serves as counsel to The Race for Education; Greenebaum’s Chairman Phil Scott was a member of its inaugural board of directors, and Greenebaum member Tandy Patrick currently sits on this board.
