Keeneland Presents American Graded Stakes Standings: Kumin Riding High With Partnerships

Sol Kumin wasn't a finalist in the outstanding owner Eclipse Award category in 2017 despite the fact that several partnerships he put together had truly outstanding years, led by Head of Plains Partners, which was ranked No. 1 on the Paulick Report's American Graded Stakes standings through its co-ownership of 11 different AGS winners. Another of his partnerships, Sheep Pond Partners, ranked fifth with part-ownership of six AGS winners.

Voters may have overlooked Kumin because his name is not on the partnerships or perhaps it was because it isn't known how big or small an interest those partnerships possess in each horse.

Voters may have a similar dilemma in 2018 when they cast their ballots for outstanding owner.

Kumin is riding high in the first half of the year with his Madaket Stables co-leader of the AGS owners' list after two wins last week – Hawkish in the G2 Penn Mile and Catholic Boy in the G3 Pennine Ridge – raised his total to seven winners of AGS races for the year. Right behind with six winners is Head of Plains Partners.

Kumin's other partnerships are Monomoy Stables, Great Point Stables, and Sheep Pond Partners. Horses he owns a piece of have won some of the sport's biggest races – including the Kentucky Derby, Kentucky Oaks and Preakness – and there is a lot of racing left in 2018.
