Fager Has High Hopes for Surging Tide
Jeff Fager, longtime executive producer of the news program 60 Minutes, first got bitten by the racing bug as a 10-year-old when the legendary John Nerud named a horse after his father, the neurosurgeon who saved his life. The equine Dr. Fager, 1968 Horse of the Year, went on to a storied racing career and the younger Fager was hooked. Fager now has an exciting racing prospect of his own in Surging Tide (Medaglia d’Oro), who was tabbed a ‘TDN Rising Star’ after her effortless 6 1/2-length debut win at Belmont Park Friday.

“We are so excited about her,” Fager said Sunday afternoon. “She had trained well and she is a great-looking horse. We were nervous, as you always are, but she came to run and she ran beautifully. [Trainer] Charlie Baker has been excited about her since the day he got her.”

Bloodstock agent Dan Hayden, a partner in Fager Stable, purchased Surging Tide for $310,000 at the 2016 Keeneland September Yearling Sale.

“Dan Hayden is just a brilliant horseman,” Fager said. “When he saw her, he really loved her. He thought she was a really well-balanced filly. And something that John Nerud had taught him, which was that when you are picking a filly, look for femininity. He saw that. She didn’t have a big walk, but he felt she had a gentle nature and was just a very imposing filly. All of those combined and we got on the phone right away and he said, ‘I think this is one we should really go for, Jeff.'”

Fager Stable had to stretch to acquire the filly, who is a daughter of MGISP Alienation (Rock Hard Ten).
