Afleet Alex is a Florida-bred racehorse who won two major stakes races in 2005; the Preakness and the Belmont Stakes, with jockey Jeremy Rose. Owned by Cash Is King LLC and trained by Tim Ritchey, Afleet Alex won eight out of twelve lifetime starts and came in third place in the 2005 Kentucky Derby.
Though Afleet Alex did not win the Kentucky Derby, his third-place finish helped move the cancer foundation, Alex’s Lemonade Stand, off the ground. This partnership gave an immense amount of exposure to Alex’s Lemonade Stand, all put together by a matter of chance. Afleet Alex went on to win the Preakness that same year, even after a dramatic stumble on the final turn. Afleet Alex got right back up with jockey Jeremy Rose, showing the determination of a true champion. The spirit of this special racehorse has become a symbol of Alex’s Lemonade Stand; a message to never give up despite the circumstances.
