The daughter of Star's Pride and Beloved, Kerry Way was bred by John Gaines and owned by his father Clarence. Kerry Way was trained by Frank Ervin, who drove her to a record-setting two-year-old season in 1965. The following year the pair captured the Hambletonian in straight heats, setting a two-heat world record for fillies. As a broodmare Kerry Way produced only six foals, but one of them was Classical Way, who captured the 1979 Kentucky Futurity and the 1981 Prix de France. Kerry Way died in 1982 at Gainesway Farm in Lexington, Kentucky.
