Over at Past the Wire, I hit the highlights of Wednesday’s Fasig-Tipton Gulfstream Sale: including six million-dollar horses, two of whom are Curlin babies!
In my latest at Past the Wire, I discuss a major change that the three leading sales companies have added to their terms, effective this summer: amid soundness concerns, buyers can now void sales of young horses if they test positive for bisphosphonates.
It’s a sad day for the Thoroughbred breed, with the news that stallion Pioneerof the Nile has passed away at the age of 13.
This week at Past the Wire, I turned my attention to the OBS March sale of two-year-olds in training. I took detailed looks at both Day One and Day Two, focusing on sire and buyer trends, major hips, and how the American Pharoah foals are doing. So, make sure to read both of my recaps, and stay up to date on the two-year-old sale season!
Starting this week, I’ve come on as a contributing writer at Past the Wire, writing racing news pieces a couple of times a week.
My first went live today, about Shaun Bridgmohan missing the rest of the Fair Grounds meet due to injury.
