Gainesway Thoroughbreds Ltd.

Though his first stakes victory came in the $300,000 Indiana Derby at 1 1/16 miles as a 3-year-old in 2001, it was at shorter distances where the speedy son of Mt. Livermore really displayed his talent. Owned by Bob and Beverly Lewis and trained by Hall of Famer D. Wayne Lukas, Orientate didn’t win a graded stakes until the Grade 2 Commonwealth Breeders’ Cup at Keeneland in 2002, his 12th lifetime start.

After a pair of disappointing efforts on turf, the latter in the Grade 1 Shoemaker Mile, Orientate was put back on dirt and reeled off five consecutive victories to end his career: the Grade 3 Aristides, Smile Sprint Handicap, Grade 2 A.G. Vanderbilt, Grade 1 Forego and Breeders’ Cup Sprint. He was voted champion sprinter in 2002, defeating 2000 champion Kona Gold in the Sprint, and 2001 champion Squirtle Squirt and 2003 champion Aldebaran in the Forego.
