Curlin Sale Motion Denied By Kentucky Judge
Meanwhile, just 24 hours before he was due to start in the Gr1 Man o' War Stakes at Belmont, Curlin was given the green light to run when a Kentucky judge denied a motion for the champion racehorse to be sold. According to thoroughbredtimes.com, last Sunday attorney Angela Ford filed a motion "on behalf of 420 Fen-Phen clients who are in line to gain a 20% interest in the four-year-old colt after successfully suing their former attorneys, William Gallion and Shirley Cunningham Jr., in a civil case. Gallion and Cunningham own the 20% interest through their wholly-controlled corporation, Tandy, that races as Midnight Cry Stables." If successful, the motion would have forced Curlin to be sold in his entirety, as opposed to just 20%.
