And here I thought they'd wait until June to sell him.  It just shows what commodities these colts are - like stocks or bonds.  Buy low, sell high.  Kudos again to Jess Jackson for letting us watch the great Curlin race as a 4 year old.

I am so appalled that these beautiful babies being spirited away when they just turn three; makes me puke actually. I don't like Big Brown's connections anyway but I do love him and wish him only the best.

What they can't buy is the American Dream. Afleet Alex sold initially for $5000 out the Timonium sale near my house. And look at the $16 million spent last year on the horse that ran one race (blanking on his name - I know you'll know it because it was very distinctive). One of the only really good things left about this sport is that money cannot guarantee victory because it comes down to the heart of the horse.

Very good point.  It was The Green Monkey, by the way.

Thanks - I knew it was Green something. Guess I was thinking that he only finished in the money for one race.
