Owner

Following military service, he acquired a small Chicago-based regional maker of beauty supplies in 1955 and parlayed it into the Alberto-Culver Company, an international Fortune 1000 company that produces and markets well-known consumer brands in the toiletry, household, and food fields, and includes Sally Beauty Company, the largest distributor of professional beauty products in the world. Under Lavin's direction, the Alberto-Culver Company became an international organization that manufactures worldwide, acquires brands, sells products in more than 100 countries, employs 18,000 people, and enjoys annual sales of more than $3 billion dollars.

Starter Analysis

Dark bay has bankrolled almost $2 Million and was last seen when winning the Sunset Handicap against males at Hollywood over a mile and a half in mid-July. Daughter of Medaglia d’Oro was unlucky when narrowly denied in this event last year when closing late and was also the runner-up in the Breeders’ Cup Filly and Mare Turf at Santa Anita last November. Five-year-old has an impressive record of nine wins from thirteen starts on grass for trainer Tom Proctor who wins with 19% of his runners in graded stakes and with 18% that won their last start. Consistent mare has some tactical speed and can be stalking the early leaders before producing her powerful late kick under Gary Stevens who has won with 36% of his mounts for the barn in the last two months.
