In this introductory episode of Fast Horses, Slow Whiskey, Hunter Rankin of Sagamore Racing and Brian Treacy of Sagamore Spirit take you inside the world of horse racing and rye whiskey in Maryland. Hunter Rankin, President of Sagamore Racing and host of Fast Horses, Slow Whiskey provides a unique perspective on Sagamore Racing's relentless work to breed, raise and train Thoroughbreds that win at horse racing's highest level. In this episode he welcomes his regular co-host, President of Sagamore Spirit, Brian Treacy. Sagamore Spirt is a new Baltimore-based whiskey company that is proud to make spirits worthy of Maryland’s distilling heritage. Sagamore Spirit Straight Rye Whiskey is an American whiskey with a unique mash bill and proofing process. The distilling team mingles two different mash bills – a high rye and a low rye – and then adds Sagamore Farm spring-fed water to create an 83-proof Straight Rye Whiskey. 100 percent of the whiskey is hand-bottled and labeled by the Sagamore Spirit team. Sagamore Racing is a professional horse racing team based at historic Sagamore Farm in Glyndon, Md. Once owned by Alfred G. Vanderbilt, Jr., Sagamore Farm was developed into a world-renowned racing and breeding operation from 1933 – 1986. During that time, Sagamore became home and the eventual resting place of Hall of Fame horses Native Dancer, Bed o’Roses and Discovery. In 2007, Under Armour founder and CEO Kevin Plank, a Maryland native, purchased the 530-acre farm implementing a long-term restoration plan with the mission to breed, raise and race Thoroughbreds at the sport’s highest level, while preserving its storied and rich tradition. Together, Hunter and Brian go inside Maryland's rich history connected with Thoroughbred racing and Rye Whiskey!
