U is for Untouched Talent, the paternal grandmother of Kentucky Derby winner Always Dreaming. Her racing career doesn’t seem like much special: in four starts, she won twice and placed twice, with career earnings of $243,550 (by comparison, Exaggerator won $900,000 for winning last year’s Preakness alone).
