Dogwood Stable

Dogwood, founded by W. Cot Campbell in Aiken, S.C. in 1973, is the model of all racing partnerships. Dogwood primarily buys his racing stock at auction, preferring to spend less than $200,000 per horse. 
  • 2013 Belmont Stakes winner Palace Malice, stabled at Palm Meadows, kicked off his 3-year-old season with a victory at Gulfstream.
  • Campbell is on the board of the Thoroughbred Owners and Breeders Association. 
  • He created the Dogwood Dominion Award in 1993. The award is given annually to an unsung hero in the racing industry. 
  • The syndicate has 77 stakes winners, including 14 Grade 1 winners, six trips to the Kentucky Derby with seven horses, a Preakness winner, six millionaires, two Eclipse Awards and a Breeders’ Cup victory. 
  • Dogwood won the 1990 Preakness Stakes with Summer Squall, who had finished second behind Unbridled in the Kentucky Derby. 
  • The Breeders’ Cup win was achieved by Storm Song in the 1996 Juvenile Fillies. Storm Song, a daughter of Summer Squall, was honored with an Eclipse Award. 
  • Steeoplechaser Inlander was honored with an Eclipse in 1987
  • Dogwood’s major stakes winners include Trippi, Wallenda, Dominion, Domynsky, Nassipour, Southjet, Smok’n Frolic, Limehouse and Aikenite.
