Over the weekend, Sol Kumin and his partners added more top-level hardware to their burgeoning trophy collection, winning both the Grade 1 Beverly D. and Arlington Million. Since he got into the game as a neophyte owner three years ago, Kumin, a 42-year-old Wall Street hedge fund manager, has circled the globe winning at classy events, including Royal Ascot, Dubai, the Breeders' Cup and the Triple Crown.
That kind of early prosperity doesn't come easy in the sport, but Kumin has crafted an approach he hopes will give him at least a chance for sustained success. He's also been eager to share his newfound passion with friends and family, often bringing dozens of them to the track for a big race, and quick to appreciate all the people behind the scenes it takes to help a racehorse win.
In this edition of Around the Track, tales from Kumin's adventure so far, the astonishing comeback of Lady Eli (one of his first horses), and why if he had to choose, he'd take mornings over the afternoons.
