Racing Legend Nerud Buys Yearling at Age 98

John Nerud has built a breeding empire, one of the sport’s most successful stables, the marketing arm of the Breeders’ Cup, and mentored classic-winning trainers such as D. Wayne Lukas, Scotty Schulhofer, and Carl Nafzger, among his many other accomplishments.


The native Nebraskan has done it with savvy, brains, tenacity, and a gift for seeing into the future. Nerud has always spoken from the gut, whether it is to grooms and hotwalkers or the nation’s most powerful tycoons. He didn’t care who you were. He looked you in the eye and said what he felt, without any thought of repercussions.


Nerud, who is just months shy of his 99th birthday and as sharp and feisty as ever, still is looking to the future, purchasing part-interest in a yearling colt by Bernstein at the recent Keeneland September sale.
