Despite the cold, chilly, and dreary wet weather at Keeneland this week, the weather conditions did very little to deter or cool off the red-hot trainer Chad Brown. Very little.

After Saturday’s races were concluded and the math had been calculated, it was easy to see that Brown — who has mastered his temporary Kentucky home on his way from his winter home in South Florida to the New York regular base — still was “The Man.”

“The Man” atop the Keeneland Trainer Standings.

“The Man” to beat in nearly every race that he enters a horse.

“The Man” to respect whenever his barn trots one out to race in Lexington.

In just 25 mounts so far this meet, Brown has mastered a resume of 9 wins, 7 seconds and 3 thirds. His win percentage is a heady .36%, and his horses have “hit the board” on .76% of the time. Most importantly, too, Brown’s horses have amassed $846,754 in total purse money.

Those statistics further validate that Chad Brown is “The Man.”

Two wins behind in second is Louisville-native and Churchill Downs-based Brad Cox, who has 7 wins in 21 starts. A win farther back in third is Wesley Ward, who has made 6 trips to the winner’s circle from the 30 starters that he has sent postward. Most of his success as come in the 2YO “baby races, to date.
