Trainer Milton Hendry
- Fillies and colts that are destined for the Bridlewood Racing Stable or 2-year-old In-Training sales are transferred from the Yearling Division to the Training Division, usually in late summer or fall. At that time they are placed in the hands of Farm Trainer Milton Hendry and his staff.
Milton joined the Bridlewood team in the summer of 2001 and his thoughtful, intuitive and responsible style has already produced enviable results. Along with his staff, he broke and trained the Halo's Image / Pleasant Dixie colt that Bridlewood offered and sold at the March 2002 OBS Select 2-year-old Sale. The sales price, $300,000, was not only the session topper, but also higher than any previous Bridlewood 2-year-old offering.
Milton's trainees perform with a confidence under his direction, and the results have been exciting.
The colt was given the name SOUTHERN IMAGE by his new owners and went on to reward them by winning three Grade 1 races and earning $1,843,750. Today, as a stallion, he stands at Taylor Made Farm in Kentucky.
Kentucky Derby (G1) and Preakness Stakes (G1) winner SMARTY JONES also received his early lessons at Bridlewood under Milton's tutelage.
