Jeff Treadway, a 51-year-old private investor from Texas, now lives in the Williamsburg section of Brooklyn, New York. He got involved with Thoroughbreds seven years ago and owns 14 horses, including his two-year-old filly Sweet Reason, whom he purchased for $185,000 at the Keeneland 2012 September Yearling Sale. Leah Gyarmati, a former exercise rider for Hall of Fame trainer Allen Jerkens, trains all his horses.
In only her second start, Sweet Reason won the 122nd running of the $300,000 Spinaway Stakes by 5¼ lengths, giving Treadway his first Grade 1.
Treadway appreciates the job Gyarmati has done with his horses: “I wouldn’t have stayed in it so long if not for Leah.” And with Gyarmati trained Noble Moon proving to be a popular winner at a freezing Aqueduct early on this year, Treadway already looks on track as one of 2014's owners to watch!
