 Biography and Highlights:

Crum is better known as head basketball coach at the University of Louisville, but he has been involved in the Thoroughbred breeding and racing business for about 20 years

Crum, a 63-year-old native of San Fernando, Calif., bred multiple stakes winner Chief Red Bird in partnership with trainer Jim Morgan. Chief Red Bird went on to win 19 races and $285,754 in the 1980s

Crum was part owner of the mare Queen Dowager, who won 18 races and $138,162 from 1981-86. He kept her as a broodmare

“There is no scientific way I breed my horses,” Crum told The Blood-Horse in 1991. “I do a lot of reading on the sport, but you never really know.”

Nasty Storm broke her maiden at Churchill Downs this spring, and though she hasn’t won a stakes, she finished second in both the grade I Spinaway at Saratoga and the grade II Walmac International Alcibiades at Keeneland

Crum arrived at the University of Louisville in 1971, and has coached the Cardinals to 23 NCAA tournament appearances. His overall record at Louisville is 663 wins and 276 losses. His record in conference games is 263-97

Crum is one of only 21 coaches in NCAA history to have reached the 600-win mark

He has three children—Cynthia, Steve, and Scott.
