Our Condolences to the Brueggemann Family

Longtime Chicago trainer Roger Brueggemann died Tuesday at a local hospital.  He was 75.

During his lengthy and impressive career, he compiled 1,248 wins and horses he trained earned $26,725,563.  He was a stalwart horseman for many years beginning his career in Southern Illinois then moving to Chicago and eventually winning a Breeder’s Cup and an Arlington Million.  

Roger will be greatly missed.  Please keep him in your thoughts and prayers.
