In 1984, McPeek graduated from the University of Kentucky with a Bachelor of Arts in Business Administration. The son of a racehorse owner, in 1985 he took out his trainer's license in Kentucky. He won the most important race of his career and got his big break in 2002 when Sarava captured the Belmont Stakes. That year, he and wife Sue were voted the Big Sport of Turfdom Award by the Turf Publicists of America.
In 2005, McPeek turned over his stable of horses to assistant Helen Pitts and left training for close to a year to focus more on his family. During this time he became friends and was considerably influenced by the training methods of renowned Australian trainers Lee Freedman and David Hayes following his visit to that country. As a bloodstock agent, at the Keeneland September yearling sale in 2005, he selected the 2007 Preakness Stakes winner Curlin for Midnight Cry Stables.
A portion of every McPeek Racing win goes to support the Thoroughbred Retirement Foundation.
