DRF: Persistence pays off for Wyeth with Union Rags’ Belmont win
Union Rags’ Belmont Stakes victory last weekend was a long time coming for Phyllis Wyeth. It took her two human and three equine generations to put Union Rags and his owner-breeder into the Belmont Stakes winner’s circle.
“Phyllis had some premonitions about this,” said Russell Jones, Wyeth’s longtime friend and bloodstock advisor. “And I don’t underestimate her intuition on this at all. She has good instincts.”
