Trainer Chad Brown has picked up where he left off in 2015, when he sent out 23 individual graded stakes winners. Just six weeks into the new year, Brown has already saddled four graded stakes winners, which places him at the top of the American Graded Stakes Standings trainer list.
Gulfstream Park, Brown's winter base, has been the site of three of those stakes victories – Life Imitates Art (G3 Dania Beach), Tammy the Torpedo (G3 Suwannee River), and Pricedtoperfection (G3 Sweetest Chant). Brown's fourth graded winner was at Aqueduct – Flexibility (G3 Jerome).
Three of Brown's graded stakes winners – Flexibility, Life Imitates Art, and Pricedtoperfection – came for the partnership of Klaravich Stables and William Lawrence, and as a result, it has placed them at the top of the current AGS owners list. Right behind that partnership is Al Shaqab Racing, which has found the winner's circle twice with the talented Mshawish (G1 Donn, G3 Hal's Hope) and Sandiva (G3 Marshua's River).
Jockey Joel Rosario has also benefited from Chad Brown's success, having ridden three of those stakes winners. Rosario thus far has five graded stakes wins to his credit, putting him atop the AGS jockey list. Rosario has notched victories on Life Imitates Art, Pricedtoperfection, Tammy the Torpedo, Forever Unbridled (G3 Houston Ladies Classic), and Cathryn Sophia (G2 Forward Gal).
