This is the DRF article about his sale. I thought it was interesting, especially how they keep the tail white...wish they'd name the shampoo.Treve wrote:The stance and angle of the photo makes them look worse than they are. But as it were an article on Bloodhorse implied that the person who bought him was likely just a collector and wasn't sure if he'd race him or just keep him as a nice flashy hunter for his daughter.BaroqueAgain1 wrote:His hind legs look really straight in that side shot.
Maybe he'll make someone a flashy saddle horse, but I would be surprised if he's a successful racehorse. I hope I'm wrong, because I have a soft spot for Clyde (Get Stormy).
All-white yearling Blizzard Condition hammers for $21,000
http://www.drf.com/news/all-white-yearl ... mers-21000Since 2002, the North American auction market has seen just eight registered white Thoroughbreds go through the ring during the yearling season. The number of eventual Kentucky Derby winners offered in the same span of time is seven.
The newest member of the exclusive club of white auction graduates was Blizzard Condition, a completely unmarked Get Stormy colt who sold to Becky Thomas as agent for David Hutson for $21,000 on Monday at the Fasig-Tipton Kentucky fall yearling sale.
“He wanted him because he’s obviously a collector’s item,” Thomas said after signing the ticket. “I’m not clear what he’s going to do with him, perhaps race him, then have him for his daughter for a hunter.”
