Trainer Bio

At the age of 31, Don Combs won the 1970 Derby with Dust Commander,  an Illinois-bred owned by Robert Lehmann, had upset the Blue Grass Stakes at 35-1 just nine days beforehand and was regarded as an outsider in a wide-open 96th running of the Derby. My Dad George was the 5-2 choice over Personality, Silent Screen, and Terlago in a field of 17, with Dust Commander sent away at 15-1. With Mike Manganello aboard, Dust Commander rallied from ninth to post a stunning five-length triumph.

Success since that Derby came at circuits such as New York, New Jersey, Florida, and Southern California before eventually returning to Kentucky, where he was born and raised.  

"Don put me on my first stakes winner in California," said Chris McCarron, the retired Hall of Fame jockey who currently operates his North American Racing Academy out of the same barn as Combs at the training center. "April Axe in the 1978 Will Rogers at Hollywood Park. He was a good horseman then, and he still is. He's an excellent caretaker. I don't understand why he doesn't have more horses."

I've been an animal lover all my life, and this is what I love to do, just be with my horses," he said. "I'm really proud of winning the Derby. It's very important to me.
