By 2003 Belmont Stakes winner Empire Maker, Broadway Empire made his debut at Turf Paradise, breaking his maiden by a dominant 16 1/2 lengths. After a disapointing start in the Grade 3 Affirmed Handicap, he won three straight stakes races including the Canadian Derby and Oklahoma Derby, both Grade 3 races.
