Spielberg Buys Top Argentine Fillies
In Argentina, Steven Spielberg & Frank Marshall (co-producers of the movie Seabiscuit) have purchased 2YO stars La Cocasse & Batallosa, who finished 1st & 2nd respectively in last month's Gr1 Gran Premio Estrellas Juvenile Fillies, reported thoroughbredtimes.com. La Cocasse & Batallosa (both bred & previously owned by Haras La Quebrada) will join trainer Larry Richardson in Kentucky "after exiting quarantine in Miami". Bloodstock agent John Fulton confirmed: "Larry, who represents the owners, will decide who will train the fillies once he has a chance to evaluate them further. He will probably send one to the West Coast & one to the East." Spielberg & Marshall previously owned interests in Atswhatimtalknbout (4th in the 2003 Gr1 Kentucky Derby).
