I just received an e-mail from Spendthrift.  They said to stop by tomorrow (Fri) during their breakfast, see their stallions.  And to visit with Court Vision before he goes to Canada.

Huh? is he retired?  Will be be standing in Canada?

HRTV nor TVG said anything today about this.

Yes Court Vision is retired, and will begin his next career at Canada farm, and just found out that Victor's Cry will be going with him.....

I don't want to invest in stallinos anymore. Wilburn is retired with a few wins to his name: a maiden race and two grade II races. This is just ridiculous.

I agree. Unless he has an injury this is nuts.

This is good news to Canadians.  I knew about Court Vision, but not a peep about Victor's Cry.  I'm very happy to hear this.

The horse racing industry (and now it IS an industry rather than a sport) then wonders why there aren't more fans, the fan base keeps dropping off, no young people interested.

One only needs to read the history of horses like Seabiscuit, Whirlaway and other stallions who were participating in the Sport of Kings to RACE, not to BREED. 

Its all about $$, like so many other things (NBA) now....
