Admirals War Chest takes the Maryland Million Classic.

Stephen Sinatra watched his homebred Admirals War Chest roll to victory in the 2015 edition of the Maryland Millions Classic, and realized another step toward his dream of breeding a Preakness winner. According to the Baltimore Sun, Sinatra purchased the prominent Allan Murray's Darlington property on Berkley Road upon his death in 2013, but had previously boarded his breeding stock at Darlington's Murmur Farm.

Murray had a vision to create the premier Maryland breeding and training facility, and the 69-year-old Sinatra would like nothing more than for that dream to become a reality. Partnering with trainer Corby Caiazzo, Sinatra has developed a program centered around using his cardiologist background to maximize the horse's potential. It includes organic, non-GMO feed, massage therapy, acupuncture, power-washing the stalls, vitamins, daily hand-grazing, daily turnout, and love.

The author of four individual studies on horses, Sinatra is also well-known for his history in human medicine. He has appeared on the Dr. Oz show and regularly lectures across the country. But he's not above getting his hands dirty: Caiazzo says “we work real good together and it's like a team effort. Everybody works hard; they work really long hours. Everybody is part of the team.”
