Bloodstock Agent Buzz Chace Dies At 72
Highly respected US bloodstock agent "Buzz" Chace has passed away at the age of 72 after a short battle with brain cancer, reports bloodhorse.com. Chace was renowned both in the US and internationally for his ability to spot talented horses for his clients at modest prices. "In our game, your success is easily measured at the finish line," said West Point Thoroughbreds president Terry Finley who worked with Chace for 17 years. "Buzz was one of the most successful in our game, and he didn't go to the sales with the biggest bankroll." Arguably Chace's best discovery was Breeders' Cup Juvenile winner and champion sire Unbridled's Song which won more than US$1.3 million in prize money. Other top gallopers purchased by Chace included champion sprinter Artax and Belmont Stakes winner Sarava.
