“Texas Red has been a superstar since the moment he walked into the barn. It was nice to see those expectations come to fruition. He took my career to new heights and I will always be grateful.” – Trainer, Keith Desormeaux

“Our Ownership Group sees Pope McLean and Crestwood Farm as the perfect partner to drive the success of Texas Red’s Stallion career. His win in the Breeders Cup Juvenile gave us all the thrill of a lifetime. We are committed to seeing him succeed in his next career. Between the partners we are looking to purchase a number of quality broodmares over the next few months in order to breed to Texas Red. We will aggressively buy and sell Texas Red babies and will be sending many of them to Keith for training.” – Partner, Erich Brehm
