by Lenny Shulman

For a man who got to the racetrack via an unorthodox route, breeder/owner/trainer Bart Evans is a big fan of tradition. He cherishes the time he spent in California with legendary trainer Charlie Whittingham and extols the virtues of New York-based legend Allen Jerkens, whom he has also visited.

“Those guys are all about the horse,” said Evans, 67, in admiration. It is a philosophy he has followed as well, never as successfully as when he raced and trained homebred Wasted Tears, who won graded stakes each season from 2009-11, finishing with 12 victories from 22 starts and earnings of $941,463. Wasted Tears delivered her first foal, a colt by Malibu Moon, Jan. 31.
