Tom Bush

Tom Bush has long been one of the most respected trainers on the New York circuit. Bush runs a relatively small operation that stresses a hands-on approach. Before striking out on his own, Bush, a native of Indianapolis, Indiana, worked for the great Allen Jerkens, as well as Angel Penna, Sr. and Richard Mandella. His most notable runners include the exceptional turf runner Get Stormy, who earned $1,600,812 during his 31-race career. Get Stormy’s resume included victories in the G1 Gulfstream Park Turf H., G1 Woodford Reserve Turf Classic, G1 Maeker’s Mark Mile, G2 Bernard Baruch H. and G2 Fourstar Dave H. Bush conditioned Unbridled Command to wins in the G1 Hollywood Derby and G3 Saranac S. and earnings that exceeded half-million. Other notable former Bush runners include eight-time stakes winner Banrock, G2 Black-Eyed Susan victress Regal Engagement, the three-time stakes-winning New York-bred Beautiful But Blue and Bradley Thoroughbreds’ three-time stakes winner A True Pussycat. As of 2016, Bush has trained 474 winners in his career and earned $23,265,208 lifetime. Bush currently resides in Floral Park with his wife Cathy.
