LEXINGTON, KENTUCKY — An Iowa-owned horse is currently in the top five of the point earners leading up to the Kentucky Derby.
Brody’s Cause, which is owned by Albaugh Family Stables, won the 2016 Toyota Blue Grass Stakes over the weekend at Keeneland in Lexington, Kentucky. The cash prize was worth $1 million.
The three-year-old horse is in 5th place in the Kentucky Derby points standings and is trained by Dale Romans. Romans also trains horses for another Iowa-owned stable that has had success with horseracing – Donegal Racing.
Another horse from Albaugh Family Stables, Unbridled Outlaw, is in 57th place in the standings.
Brody’s Cause won’t race again until the Kentucky Derby on May 7th.
