C O N S T E L L A T I O N C O N S T E L L A T I O N 00 Pattern Recognition In this, our eighth edition of Constellation, we are excited to once again bring you the extraordinary world of WinStar. Whether discussing racing, breeding or other facets of the horse industry in general, it is nearly impossible to ignore the fact that horses change one life after another. Horses uplift us, they deeply inspire, and we marvel at their majesty. This theme is depicted on our front cover and was featured in WinStar's commercial that ran during this year's Super Bowl telecast (see page 58). Our industry is brimming with stories to share, and you'll find that much of this issue is devoted to celebrating the horses and people that make our industry so spectacular. From an insightful profile of WinStar's longtime pedigree advisor John Prather (page 28) to a look back at the legendary career of broadcaster and Lexington native Tom Hammond (page 44), to a feature on the Thoroughbred Idea Foundation (page 8), a Shareholder profile on Sandra Sexton (page 115), and touching tributes to Battle of Midway (page 61) and Pioneerof the Nile (page 64), the thought-provoking articles in this issue of Constellation are aimed at providing understanding and connection. We also explore the explosive growth of turf racing in the United States (page 18), hear from buyers and consignors on the first 2-year-olds by WinStar's Freshman Class— Carpe Diem, Commissioner, Constitution, and Daredevil (page 36), and preview what is ahead with the opening of Jeff Ruby's new steakhouse (page 52) in the heart of the Bluegrass. And with the Kentucky Derby just around the corner, we profile Christine Moore, the Kentucky Derby's Official Milliner, on page 120. As always, we hope you enjoy reading this issue of Constellation as much as we enjoyed putting it all together for you, and it is our sincere hope that the material and conversations shared within these covers help you to define your path forward in the industry and above all, inspire you to Dream Big.
