A man named Jeff Jeans signed the ticket. Any idea who he is?

Jeff Jeans got I'll Have Another. He's an owner/breeder currently standing Airoforce (son of Colonel John) in Pennsylvania I think. I don't know anything about the man or his operations, but maybe IWR will continue at stud.

Okay, I looked up Jeff Jeans on Ownerview. Don't know how current this is but, If Buff trains for him, he must be okay.

Glad he's staying stateside.

I see that a "BBA Ireland" bought Commend, and a "Guillermo Elizondo" bought Fayeq.

He's in my VS because Wine Princess is out of Azeri. Ticket was signed by an agent for for BG Stables and DA Meah Racing. Lane's End apparently has given up on him as a something they will stand at stud. He won a MSW at first asking but couldn't win an allowance race last month. He's a 3 yo this year and maybe he'll race on and try to improve his record.

I'm thinking Fayeq is headed for stud, probably in South America. Commend is likely headed to Europe. David Meah has worked with a few SoCal trainers, particularly Richard Baltas. Not sure exactly what he's into these days, but I suspect War Chest will surface on the west coast.

Seattle Serenade was a million dollar purchase as a yearling. Ouch.

IIRC Seattle Serenade ran one or two really impressive races but couldn't hold together.
I ran marathons. I saw the Taj Mahal by Moonlight. I drove Highway 1 in a convertible. I petted Zenyatta.

He pulled up in a race a Santa Anita. Was out for a year. He was never as brilliant as he was before the injury. He did mange three wins, two allowance races and a cheap stake race at Fresno
