US Gr1 Winner Liaison To Spendthrift
Meanwhile, in further US breeding news, Gr1-winning 4YO entire Liaison (Indian Charlie-Galloping Gal, by Victory Gallop) will stand the 2014 season at Spendthrift Farm in Kentucky. Trained by Bob Baffert, Liaison's career highlight came in the Gr1 Hollywood Futurity as a juvenile. Winless in 2012 despite a clutch of graded stakes placings, he trained on to win another two stakes events in California earlier this year before placing in the Gr2 Californian Stakes & Listed Harry F.Brubaker Stakes. According to sunherald.com, Ned Toffey, Spendthrift's general manager, enthused: "Liaison is a tremendous-looking individual with great conformation, and obviously he's a Grade 1-winning 2-year-old by Indian Charlie, like Uncle Mo. We believe breeders are going to love him." A debut fee has yet to be announced.
