The Paulick Report continues its coverage at the OBS Spring sale with a second edition of the PR Special, a print publication distributed on the sales grounds in Ocala, Fla.
In this edition, Ray delves into the communication “triangle” between owner, trainer, and veterinarian:
“The late Hall of Famer Charlie Whittingham, who said the most dangerous thing in racing is an owner with a condition book, often joked that he treated his owners like mush- rooms. “Keep ‘em in the dark and feed a steady diet of ma- nure,” he would say.
“But it's the owners who pay the bills, and failure by trainers to communicate with them has driven more than a few owners out of the game.”
Also in this PR Special, Frank Mitchell shines his Stallion Spotlight on WinStar's Bellamy Road and gives us a few hips to pay close attention to at the sale in Five to Watch.
Get to know the lighter side of Four Star Sales' client recruitment agent “Deuce” Greathouse in our Back Ring segment and learn more about OBS April grad and Kentucky Oaks contender Fashion Plate with our Honor Roll.
