The Performance of Under Armour,
Made for Sagamore Racing

Sagamore Racing, the horse racing team based at historic Sagamore Farm in Maryland, announced today the launch of an online store which includes Sagamore Racing branded Under Armour apparel for men and women. Fans of Sagamore may purchase the premium products online at SagamoreRacingStore.com.

With the launch of an online store, fans can show their support for the team with an array of apparel options custom designed for Sagamore Racing. Under Armour, the Maryland-based leader in sports performance apparel, footwear and accessories, exclusively produced products for the store, including men’s and women’s Coaches and Performance Polos, Long and Short Sleeve Graphic T-Shirts, Tactical Full Zip Hoodies, Barragie Team Jackets and Full Button Woven Shirts. All items offer Under Armour’s signature durability, comfort and guarantee of performance.

“As Sagamore Racing continues to grow and succeed, we were encouraged to create an online apparel store to meet the demand by our great fan base in Maryland and throughout horse racing,” said Tom Mullikin, Sagamore Racing General Manager. “2012 was an exciting year for our team, and in 2013 we have our largest line-up of three-year-old horses competing. We hope to see fans out at the track sporting our gear.”

With each purchase, customers will receive a keepsake which includes information on Sagamore Racing and horses to watch in 2013. Last week, Sagamore’s homebred filly, Walkwithapurpose, captured the Maryland Juvenile Filly Championship at Laurel Park.

The brightest 3-year-old male star at Sagamore Farm is Heat Press. This son of Malibu Moon broke his maiden on Dec. 8th at Laurel Park, winning by 14 lengths and is being conditioned by Kenutcky Derby winning trainer H. Graham Motion, in hopes for a run at the Triple Crown.

About Sagamore Racing:
Sagamore Racing is a professional horse racing team based at historic Sagamore Farm in Glyndon, Md. Once owned by Alfred G. Vanderbilt II, Sagamore Farm was developed into a world renowned racing and breeding operation from 1933 – 1986. During that time, Sagamore became home and the eventual resting place of Hall of Fame horses Native Dancer, Bed o’Roses and Discovery. In 2007, Under Armour founder and CEO Kevin Plank, a Maryland native, purchased the 530-acre farm implementing a long-term restoration plan with the mission to breed, raise and race Thoroughbreds at the sport’s highest level, while preserving its storied and rich tradition.
