Sermon on the Mount includes never before seen photographs, quotes and insights from D. Wayne Lukas, and an incredible foreword by Bill Parcells.


“…Wayne’s wisdom, insights and experiences underscore the fact that racing is simply a microcosm of life, and that many of the philosophies that fuel the racing industry are the same that fuel other endeavors in both personal or professional arenas. Sermon on the Mount is merely a distillation of the way Wayne moves through his daily life. Whether you are a racing fan or not, everyone can enjoy going on this ride with the legendary figure who walked among giants and revolutionized the racing industry.” – Introduction by Christina Bossinakis


“From the first time I saw his team pull into a Quarter Horse track with his gleaming chrome trailers, I knew one thing--I wanted to be D. Wayne Lukas when I grew up. I’m still trying to get there, and for however long I train horses, he will always be my standard of excellence.”- Hall of Fame Trainer Bob Baffert, winner of the 2015 Triple Crown with American Pharoah

“Wayne Lukas’s attention to detail and his ability to manage the people in his employ as well as the horses in his care made it possible for him to successfully operate multiple divisions of his stable at many different racetracks across the country. That, along with the inherent instinct to see the positive in almost any situation enabled him to revolutionize Thoroughbred racing and set records that lasted for decades.” - Hall of Fame Jockey Jerry Bailey

“There are very few people who can truly change an industry, and I think it’s clear Wayne Lukas did that for horse racing. Wayne ran his stable like a corporation and had a huge impact on the yearling market and public sales in general. When you think about it in those terms (the broad scope of the effect he had on the business), his influence is unparalleled.”—Seven-time Eclipse Award-winning trainer Todd Pletcher

“Wayne Lukas is the most inspirational person I have ever met. His philosophy for success consisted of two primary things; smile and work hard. He truly shaped my riding career.”—Hall of Fame jockey Gary Stevens

“Wayne is a very smart guy, and very few people worked as hard as he has to master their profession. He has always been extremely connected his program as well as to his players. In my opinion, nobody is sharper or works harder than D. Wayne Lukas.”—Basketball Hall of Fame and Olympic Gold Medal-winning coach Bobby Knight (“The General”)
