Legendary UofL Coach Crum Enjoys Churchill Allowance Win With Into Mischief Colt Strava

Former University of Louisville Men’s Basketball coach Denny Crum was on hand at Churchill Downs on Saturday afternoon to watch his 3-year-old colt Strava cruise to a six-length allowance victory.

Strava, who is co-owned by breeder WinStar Farm and Siena Farm, was an $825,000 purchase by Crum at the 2021 Keeneland November Breeding Stock Sale.

“We got together and I said, ‘Let’s go buy us a nice one.’ We bought him and he was a little expensive but Coach said, ‘I never get beat in Lexington,’” trainer Dallas Stewart joked.

A joyful Crum was joined in the winner’s circle by many friends and family to celebrate Strava’s victory.

“It’s been a long time coming it seems,” Crum said. “I really liked the way he finished up. Our trainer did a hell of a job.”

Strava banked $73,420 for the $130,125 first-level allowance victory. The Kentucky-bred colt by Into Mischief out of Catch My Drift, by Pioneerof the Nile, covered one mile in 1:34.83 and earned a career best 94 Brisnet Speed Rating.
