Curlin Owners Remain In US Jail
Friday Odd Spot: Two owners of this season's US Gr1 Preakness Stakes winner Curlin "will remain in jail until they account for money they received in a lawsuit over the diet drug fen-phen," reported bloodhorse.com. US District Judge William Bertelsman ruled he would "hold a hearing to consider releasing the men (both of whom are attorneys) after they provide a detailed accounting of what they did with money they received from a US$200 million settlement". William Gallion & Shirley Cunningham (who own Curlin in partnership with 3 others) are in jail in northern Kentucky "pending trial on charges of conspiring to commit wire fraud". Bertelsman jailed the lawyers in August, noting he was "concerned the men had the resources to flee the country".
