Woody Stephens Danzig, Swale, Belmont Stakes hand signed in person 8x10 autograph photo (DEC)

This approximately 8x10 photo is hand signed by Hall of Fame trainer - Woody Stephens.

Woody Stephens (September 1, 1913 - August 22, 1998) was an American Thoroughbred horse racing Hall of Fame trainer.

In a career that spanned seven decades, Stephens trained eleven Eclipse Award winners, and his horses won over a hundred Grade 1 stakes races. Among his most notable horses was Henryk de Kwiatkowski's colt Conquistador Cielo, the winner of the 1982 Eclipse Award for Horse of the Year.

Although Stephens trained horses that won the Kentucky Oaks for fillies five times, plus the Kentucky Derby twice and the Preakness Stakes once, he is most remembered for winning an unprecedented five straight Belmont Stakes between 1982 and 1986.

Stephens was elected to the National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame in 1976. In 1983, he won the Eclipse Award as the top trainer in the United States. Although he often wore rumpled clothes, his earnings from racing plus investments in successful breeding stock made him a very wealthy man.
