No. 4 Brad Kelley

1,500,000 acres

Kelley’s Calumet Farm reclaimed its peerless reputation on May 18, 2013 when Oxbow won the Preakness Stakes with veteran hoop Gary Stevens in the irons. Hall of Famer D. Wayne Lukas trained the Awesome Again colt. Calumet’s eight wins in the Preakness now match its record eight wins in the Kentucky Derby. Founded in 1924 by William Monroe Wright, the 800-acre farm fell on hard times in the early 1990s. Thanks to the de Kwiatkowski family, which bought it out of bankruptcy for $17 million, Calumet remained intact. In 2012, the Calumet Investment Trust acquired it for $36 million and leases the farm to Kelley. Calumet’s other Preakness winners were Whirlaway (1941), Pensive (1944), Faultless (1947), Citation (1948), Fabius (1956), Tim Tam (1958), and Forward Pass (1968).
