He is out of the mare ToastToFriendship (hence the name) who obviously knew where the finish line was because she won 7 races and she won 4 in succession. I called her trainer, who I've known for quite a few years, and he said when the mare was running she wasn't only a tenacious runner but she would take the lead, when horses came to her she would re-brake and accelerate mid stretch and widen her margin to the wire, sometimes winning by 12. I thought that was pretty cool. Not too many horses have the tactical speed to do that, especially over a distance of ground. So that was encouraging, and a little bit exciting, but I can't get too excited because horses that work this fast usually go way beyond my budget. Now some times things fall into place and horses fall through the proverbial cracks. In this case, I am excited to say they did.
Wildcat Friendship was late in the sale and many times people leave the sale as orders get filled. I was elated, felt very fortunate to get him and tickled to death because I think this horse will be a stand out in Louisiana and tower over the competition. The root word for fortunate is fortune and that's what we could make together racing this horse in one of the most lucrative racing programs in the country.
Give me a call or email today about this big good looking son of a gun. He will be trained by Al Stall in LA. Al and his team do a great job and also welcome all of our owners to the barn, saddling paddock and, of course, the Winner's Circle when we are lucky enough to get there.
