H. Graham Motion

Few names in the sport today resonate like H. Graham Motion.  A native of Cambridge, England, Graham’s list of professionalism and successes abound on several continents and over multiple surfaces. Possibly most notable for his work with 2011 Kentucky Derby winner (where Mucho Macho Man finished 3rd) & 2012 Dubai World Cup Champion, Animal Kingdom.
 

Motion started out training and winning with his own  thoroughbreds at age 29. His first win was with Bounding Daisy in March 1993 at Laurel Park.
 

Graham learned the business well from his father who worked as a bloodstock agent until he became an assistant trainer for Johnathan Shepard from 1985 through 1990. He then worked as an assistant under trainer Bernie Bond in 1991 and assumed Bond's stable when the trainer retired after 1992. Motion is home based at the excellent training facility in Fair Hill, Maryland.
 

Besides Animal Kingdom, he has trained many standouts including Better Talk Now, Went The Day Well, Film Maker, Icabad Crane, Adriano, Bay Eagle and others. Graham also has a long list of Stakes wins including the Kentucky Derby, Dubai World Cup, Breeders’ Cup Turf & Filly and Mare Turf events, multiple Maryland Millions races and many other notables.  Most recently, Graham has also earned 2014 Eclipse Award honors with Main Sequence being recognized as Male Turf Horse of the Year!
 

His humility overshadows his impressive career that features a winning percentage of nearly 20% with 2,000 victories from about 10,000 starts.

 

 

 

Patrick "Pat" Quick

Pat Quick has been a solid trainer for Dream Team Racing Stable for nearly a decade and has been an integral part to our string's successes with consistent and steady production.  Pat stables at Belmont Park and runs the Saratoga, Belmont, Aqueduct circuit while successfully placing horses for races at a great rate over the winter meet.

 

Pat has been ultra consistent as a trainer in the lucrative NY tracks and we look forward to having Pat as part of our racing stable for a long time to come.  Since day one of our relationship, he has been a very approachable trainer and popular with our partners that visit the barn, trackside or the paddock during pre-race festivities.

 

 

 

Dallas Stewart

Dallas Stewart joined Dream Team Racing Stable in early 2011 and will begin training the first two year old purchase for the stable this year co-owned in partnership.  Since taking out his trainer's license in 1985, Dallas has learned the trade wonderfully and has distinguising himself as one of the top trainers in the country.  In 1997, his career took a positive turn when he was hired as an exercise rider and assistant to the D. Wayne Lukas barn in Louisiana.  He later became the lead trainer to Lukas' division in Kentucky where he led the barn until he went out on his own.

 

In 2000, Dallas won his first training title at Keeneland's Spring meet.  He has also saddled eight horses in Breeders' Cup races including winning the Distaff (now Ladies' Classic) with Unbridled Elaine on the way to making her a $3.8 million earner.  In 2008, his three year old Macho Again (Macho Uno) finished second in the Preakness and a year later won the G1 Stephen Foster Handicap and G2 New Orleans Handicap.  Macho Again was also a fast closing second in the G1 Woodward Stakes behind eventual Horse of the Year Rachel Alexandra.  Lemons Forever provided Dallas a landmark moment when she rallied from last place to win the 2006 Kentucky Oaks and later in the year competed in the Breeders' Cup Distaff.  More recently, Dallas finished impressively 2nd in the Kentucky Derby two years in a row (2013 & 2014).

 

Dallas manages his string of about 40 horses between the Fair Grounds and Kentucky and continues to compete at the highest levels as he did in 2010 with Seeking the Title when she won the G3 Iowa Oaks and finishing second in the G3 Monmouth Oaks and third in the G2 Fair Grounds Oaks.  We are excited to have Dallas on our team and look forward to long and successful relationship together.
