Dallas Stewart is yet another of the successful products of Hall of Famer D. Wayne Lukas."I had one of the best jobs that anybody could ask for," he said of his assistant trainer's position with Lukas.
...
When Stewart was just a kid, growing up in New Orleans, he fell in love with horses almost by accident.His family wasn't in the Thoroughbred business.But his grandfather had some horses and kept a small stable.One day, his grandfather put him on a horse's back and gave him some pointers on riding."I developed an interest in horses when I was about 12," he said."I fell in love with riding.I wanted to go out there and ride all the time.It was the greatest thing in the world to me."His grandfather gave him a horse to train and he prepared it to run in match races in Mississippi.While still in high school, Stewart started galloping racehorses.His first job, he said, was with Connie Tassistro, for whom he galloped horses and worked as a groom."As soon as I got out of high school, I went to the racetrack in New Orleans and got a job galloping horses.It was what I liked.I loved being around the horses."Stewart held a variety of jobs at the racetrack, including working as a valet in the jockeys' room."I love the game," he said."I like training by far the best of the various jobs I've had."In 1986, after galloping horses one morning, Stewart approached Randy Bradshaw, who headed Lukas' barn in Louisiana.
...
In 1992, Stewart was named Lukas' top assistant in Kentucky.Three years later, the responsibilities of running the stables in Florida and Saratoga were added.Team Lukas had a fabulous run from 1994-1996 with its six straight wins in Triple Crown races."You get to be around some of the top horses in the world," Stewart said of working for Lukas.
...
Before long, Willis Horton, owner of Horton Stables, Cot Campbell, president of Dogwood Stables, John Gunther, and others contacted Stewart to train for them and his string of horses quickly rose from the original 12.From Churchill, he goes to Fair Grounds for the winter, then on to Keeneland, Churchill, Saratoga and through Kentucky on his way back to New Orleans."Hard work is the key to my success," he said.
...
Stewart won his first training title in 2000, at the Keeneland spring meet.His stakes performers during the year included Dollar Bill, who won the Brown & Williamson Kentucky Jockey Club Stakes (G2) at Churchill.In 2001, his stabled earned more than $3.8 million, topped by Unbridled Elaine's payday for winning the Breeders' Cup Distaff.He also won two graded events with Nasty Storm-the Churchill Downs Distaff Handicap (G2) and Dogwood Stakes (G3).He co-owned Nasty Storm with former University of Louisville basketball coach Denny Crum and bloodstock agent Reiley McDonald.In 2002, Stewart won the Gallant Bloom Handicap (G2) at Belmont Park with Nasty Storm and other stakes with Sweet Nanette, Kazoo and Saintly Look.The following year, Saintly Look won the Lecomte Stakes (G3) and Stewart also won the Mardi Gras Handicap at Fair Grounds with Even the Score and the Perryville Stakes at Keeneland with Clock Stopper.In 2004, he saddled Silverfoot to win the Louisville Handicap (G3); Molto Vita to win two stakes, including the Thoroughbred Club of America Stakes (G3); Storm Surge for a pair of stakes, including the Sugar Bowl Stakes; and Crimson Stag to win the Louisiana Champions Day Juvenile Stakes.And Clock Stopper, despite not winning a stakes last year, did place in four graded events and then ran sixth in the Breeders' Cup Sprint (G1).His stable won 49 races and earned $2,170,555.With Overbrook Farm's homebred Storm Surge winning the Lecomte Stakes (G3) in his 2005 season opener and West Point Thoroughbreds' Crimson Stag accounting for the Crescent City Derby in his, Stewart may have two colts on the Kentucky Derby trail this year.
