Tiger Walk will attempt to bring new glory to Sagamore Farm

It has been decades since Sagamore Farm in Glyndon, Maryland, has had a starter in the Preakness Stakes (gr. I). The farm, once the apple of Alfred G. Vanderbilt II's eye, had been neglected for decades, with paint peeling on empty barns.

Kevin Plank, CEO of Under Armour, purchased Sagamore in 2007, with the goal of restoring it to its former glory. With his 3-year-old colt, Tiger Walk, Plank hopes that not only a start but a win in the Preakness can be a major step toward that goal.

    He is named for the Auburn University tradition “Tiger Walk” where Auburn fans line the street as the football players walk to the stadium. This tradition goes back many decades but formally became known as Tiger Walk in 1989 Iron Bowl when Alabama first played at Jordan-Hare Stadium on the Auburn campus. Auburn was the first college football program to wear Under Armour uniforms and the first BCS National Champions to wear Under Armour uniforms. As an Auburn graduate I have been very proud of this tribute and have tried to get as many Auburn fans as possible to follow this horse. Hopefully he will get in the Preakness and make Auburn fans proud! War Eagle!
