Bert and Diana Firestone, who owned and/or bred more than 175 major stakes winners in the U.S., Ireland, England, France and Japan over the decades, were back in the spotlight as homebred Winchester, a son of homebred turf champion Theatrical (Ire), carried their colors to victory in the Manhattan Handicap-G1. Residing on Newstead Farm in Upperville, Va., the Firestones had campaigned seven Eclipse Award champions, headlined by the iconic filly Genuine Risk. Other champions included Honest Pleasure, What a Summer and homebreds General Assembly, Paradise Creek, Theatrical (Ire) and April Run (Ire).
