King Leatherbury knows how he wants his training career to be defined. He knows how he would like to be remembered.
“If I wanted something on my tombstone,” he said, “it would just be, ‘He won races.’ “
Leatherbury, 84, has won races all right. He ranked fourth all-time with 6,455 victories when he was inducted into the National Museum of Racing’s Hall of Fame in 2015, the ultimate exclamation point to a career that has spanned parts of seven decades.
