This rumor, making the rounds for a few weeks, was confirmed in a press release and reported today at Bradley Weisbord, son of the bloodstock investor/adviser and Thoroughbred Daily News publisher Barry Weisbord, has been named finance and stallion general manager for Ahmed Zayat's Zayat Stables, which filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy recently after being sued by Fifth Third Bank.

The elder Weisbord is a shareholder in numerous stallions and is a close associate of Richard Santulli, the former NetJets chairman who has even more substantial bloodstock holdings. Weisbord also served as a trustee in the bankruptcy case involving horseman Tom Gentry nearly 20 years ago. 

The question some inquiring minds in the bloodstock world are asking about the appointment of 2007 University of Wisconsin college graduate Bradley Weisbord to such a position of influence at Zayat Stables is whether or not some of Zayat's bloodstock assets will wind up being bought by Barry Weisbord or Santulli if the bankruptcy results in a full or partial dispersal. But like Roseanne Roseannadanna used to tell Richard Feder of Fort Lee, N.J., on Saturday Night Live, “You sure do ask a lotta stupid questions for a guy from New Jersey.”

    Did you learn how to pay your bills there? Is that what Bradley will be teaching Zayat? Or is this move just to facilitate a bankruptcy sale at a future date?
