CHESAPEAKE CITY -- Behind the black wooden fences that spread as far as the eye can see under a painterly sky, stallions Two Punch and Not For Love graze contentedly in their paddocks.

They are the two top dogs on land where Northern Dancer, one of racing's greatest sires, once held court. They are also the top two sires in the region and the top two active sires of Maryland Million Day winners.
