Trainer Bio

Claude R. “Shug” McGaughey III made the difficult climb from young racing fan to Hall of Fame trainer. His parents introduced him to the sport at Keeneland Race Course and he says he was hooked by the atmosphere and the competition. McGaughey dropped out of the University of Mississippi in his junior year to keep his job as a groom with trainer David Carr. He later became an assistant to trainer David Whiteley and opened his own stable in 1979. He began training for Loblolly Stable in 1982, and in 1985 developed his first Eclipse Award winner, Champion Older Male Vanlandingham.  Six years later, he was named the trainer of the powerful Phipps family stable. His longtime assistant is childhood friend Buzz Tenney. 

McGaughey was inducted into the Racing Hall of Fame in 2004.

McGaughey has trained nine Breeders’ Cup winners, which is second all time. He trained Lure to back-to-back wins in the Breeders’ Cup Mile (1992 and 1993) and twice he has won two Breeders’ Cup races on the same day.  Lure will be inducted into the National Museum of Racing’s Hall of Fame this summer.

McGaughey guided Easy Goer to a Juvenile Championship in 1988 and six Grade 1 races in 1989: the Wood Memorial, Belmont Stakes, Whitney, Travers, Woodward and Jockey Club Gold Cup. He trained Personal Ensign to 13 career wins, and she finished her undefeated career with a nose victory in the 1988 Breeders’ Cup Distaff over that year’s Kentucky Derby winner, Winning Colors. On Oct. 16, 1993, McGaughey won five graded stakes at Belmont Park.

 McGaughey’s other major runners include champions Rhythm, Heavenly Prize, Queena, Vanlandingham, Storm Flag Flying, Inside Information and Smuggler, plus Coronado’s Quest, Dancing Spree, My Flag, Versailles Treaty, Seeking the Gold, Glitter Woman, Educated Risk, Miner’s Mark, Dispute, Pine Island, Pleasant Home, Dispute, Awe Inspiring and Dancing Forever.

His major multiple stakes wins include the Travers (3), Jockey Club Gold Cup (3), Spinster (4), Alabama (4), Beldame (4), Wood Memorial (3), Ashland Stakes (3), Coaching Club American Oaks (2) and the Whitney (2).

Through May 2013, McGaughey has won 1,768 races for purses of $119 million. He has trained nine champions, won four training titles in New York and was voted the Eclipse Award for Outstanding Trainer in 1988.

In 2013, McGaughey returned to Churchill Down for the Kentucky Derby for the first time since 2002 (Saarland) with Orb. The 3-year-old Malibu Moon colt - a descendant of a family cultivated by the Janneys that includes champion Ruffian - swept from far off the pace to deliver McGaughey his first Kentucky Derby win. Orb followed his big win with a fourth place effort in the Preakness Stakes before moving on to the final Triple Crown race, the Belmont Stakes where he finished third.

The Kentucky Derby had always been a career aspiration for McGaughey. Mission accomplished.
