Vyjack Owner Turns Down $3 Million Offer
Vyjack owner David Wilkenfeld, who campaigns as Pick Six Racing, said he got several purchase offers for the gelding—one as high as $3 million—after his win in the Gotham Stakes.
Despite the high price, Wilkenfeld said he has no intention of selling even a share in the Kentucky Derby contender.
“I don’t like partners. I really don’t,” he told Daily Racing Form. “The energy is great. It’s my friends and family, Rudy’s family, Gustavo’s family, I don’t like to mess with karma.”
Vyjack worked four furlongs in 51.23 seconds at Aqueduct on Friday morning. The aggression the horse displayed early in his career seems to have faded, according to trainer Rudy Rodriguez.
“Right now, we’re very, very excited what he is doing. He’s learning a lot and he’s putting his mind together,” said Rodriguez.
