Lexington, KY --- Steve Brown, 81, who operated Dunroven Stud on historic Walnut Hall Farm in Lexington, Ky., with his wife, Martha, and previously managed Walnut Hall Farm, died April 6, 2014, after battling cancer.
Mr. Brown and his wife bred 2012 Kentucky Futurity winner My MVP, 1997 Hambletonian Oaks champion Must Be Victory, and many other stakes winners over the years. He also raced young horses, particularly fillies who were retired to the Dunroven broodmare band. That practice put the filly Madam Cool in the Dunroven broodmare band and she produced the stakes-winning Bold Dreamer 3,1:55 ($531,258), who has gone on to produce the winners of $2.6 million, among them $1.6 million winner Pampered Princess.
Born April 25, 1932, in Whiteburg, Ky., Mr. Brown was the son of the late John T. Brown and Eliza N. Brown. He served in the United States Air Force from 1951 to 1955, where he served a three-year tour of duty in Germany. He was a 1960 graduate of the University of Kentucky.
