PR Special Keeneland September: Preakness Winner, Into Mischief

by | 09.12.2017 | 8:00am

The Paulick Report is once again pleased to offer its special print publication available online and on the grounds of the Keeneland Association in Lexington, Ky., during the annual September Yearling Sale, which runs through Sept. 23.

In this edition of the PR Special – the second of four during the September sale – Eclipse Award-winning writer Natalie Voss recounts the storied history of Greentree, its owners from a branch of the Whitney family, and some of the Thoroughbred champions raced on its lush pastures along the Paris Pike. It's the second part in a series entitled “Kentucky Farm Time Capsule.”

Cloud Computing, the 2017 Preakness winner purchased by Mike Ryan as agent for $200,000 on behalf of Seth Klarman and William Lawrence at the 2015 Keeneland September Yearling Sale, is Chelsea Hackbarth's subject in the “Honor Roll.” Frank Mitchell details the rising fortunes of Into Mischief in the “Stallion Spotlight” and also looks at some of the Tuesday session's top hips in “Five to Watch.”

Finally, Rood and Riddle veterinarian Dr. Kathleen Paasch discusses corrective surgeries and their effects on soundness and breeding in the “Ask Your Veterinarian” feature.

    I’d always seen Payne Whitney’s full name as William Payne Whitney. Not as Payne William. Supposedly Payne was not as interested initially in the racing stable, but it was his wife Helen Hay Whitney who was the driving force. His lack of interest had to do with his acrimonious relationship with his father for his hasty remarriage after the death of their mother Flora Payne. Payne reportedly stated that his main job was as the manager of his wife’s racing stable.
    Helen Hay’s father was also one of Abe Lincoln’s devoted personal secretaries.
