Michael Dubb, principal of Jericho-based The Beechwood Organization, scored a triple crown of sorts in the world of horseracing.

Dubb, a homebuilder and developer, won the Saratoga Meet’s racing owner title on Labor Day weekend with a dozen winning races, including a win in the prominent $100,000 Evan Shipman Stakes. This is the third such honor for Dubb, who was deemed the lead thoroughbred owner on the New York Racing Association circuit in 2011 and again in 2012.

A NYRA board member, Dubb has a stake in 50 horses – including Condo Commando and Bishops Pond (named after his development in the Hamptons) – that race at Aqueduct and Belmont. Royal Posse was the winner in the Evan Shipman Stakes race for New York-breds on Sept. 4.

Dubb built and donated a 7,500-square-foot daycare center, Anna House, for the children of NYRA backstretch workers at Aqueduct and Belmont Park. He serves as chairman of the board of the Belmont Child Care Association, which operates Anna House.
