Allen Paulson Legacy Lives On In 2002 Breeders' Cup

The red, white and blue silks with the italicized AP for years have saluted the dedication to Thoroughbred racing of Allen E. Paulson, and nowhere is it more pronounced that in the Breeders' Cup World Thoroughbred Championships.

His name stands atop three categories for statistics both for owners and breeders. The stable heads the owners list for money won and number of starters, and the breeders standings for money won. Paulson, who died July 19, 2000, stands second on the breeders list for number of starters.

The Paulson legacy lives on again in this year's Breeders' Cup World Thoroughbred Championships at Arlington Park in the form of Azeri, expected to be the heavy favorite in the Distaff and Del Mar Show in the Mile. They will run in the name of the Allen E. Paulson Living Trust and both were bred by Paulson and seem to have a chance to enhance those numbers that already grace his name.

Paulson heads the owners money-won standings with a total of $7,570,000, nearly $3 million ahead of runner-up Frank Stronach, whose total is $4,898,000. Paulson's six victories also lead owners, with the late Eugene Klein's four wins second. For number of starters, Paulson shares the top echelon with Juddmonte Farms with 32 each.

In the breeders category, Paulson's 25 starters have netted $6,694,800, nearly $2 million ahead of runner-up Overbrook Farm with $4,843,000. Paulson is second to Juddmonte Farms in starters, 25-31.

Obviously, Saturday's two prospects could add considerably to the Paulson money numbers, since a win in the $2 million Distaff for Azeri would net $1,040,000 and a victory in the $1 million Mile would net $520,000.

Azeri, who is working on a six-race winning streak and a career record of nine victories and a second in 10 starts, is trained by Laura de Seroux, a rising star in the Thoroughbred training firmament, and Del Mar Show, who could become a millionaire with a win, is trained by Hall of Fame conditioner Bill Mott. These trainers handle all of the Paulson Living Trust horses, totaling 15, according to Michael Paulson, co-trustee and executor of the trust.

Michael Paulson is already showing an enthusiasm for a continuing presence in racing for the trust. While acknowledging the need to "maximize the value of the trust," the younger Paulson, with a nod toward the present market situation, said, "We're doing quite well in racing and breeding, so I don't see any urgency for dispersing the holdings."

In addition, Paulson said the breeding side will continue. "We have a majority stake in Theatrical and Jade Hunter and 50 percent of Geri," he said. "And we have interests in several other stallions."

Paulson admits to a special feeling for Azeri, considered by many in the sport as the best older filly or mare in the country. "I consider Azeri as a gift from my father," he said, adding "racing gives me good memories of my dad in the winner's circle."
