Trained by Ivan Vazquez, he is owned by Berva Megson of Megson Farms located in Calvert City, Kentucky, which currently boasts the largest stable of registered white thoroughbreds and broodmare band in North America with more than two dozen as well as standing the 11-year-old Storm Cat-Phone Chatter stallion El Romeo.

Fewer than one percent of all registered thoroughbreds are white, and no registered white thoroughbred has ever won a stakes race in North America, although a Japanese bred named Yukichan won three stakes races in 2008-2010.

Wear the Mask’s sire, Airdrie Apache, is one of the most well-known sires of coloured thoroughbreds. He was a sabino son of white mare Not Quite White, and stood at Desert Oasis Performance Horses in Nevada, along with white Thoroughbred stallion Bright White, until his death at 19 in 2014.
