Ron the Greek, impressive winner of the G1 Jockey Club Gold Cup, has been sold to an undisclosed buyer overseas, it was reported by the Blood-Horse.
Adam Wachtel, who owned the 6-year-old horse in partnership with Brous Stable, Jack Hammer, and Gary Barber, kept the remaining details of the deal confidential.
“After the Gold Cup we had so many inquiries; last year we debated selling him and we had some pretty interesting offers, but we just felt if we could keep him sound and pick up the right spots for him, there might be some opportunities to pick up some big races,” Wachtel told the Blood-Horse.
Trained by Bill Mott, Ron the Greek earned $2,704,691 from 29 starts, including victories in the 2012 Stephen Foster Handicap (gr. I) and the Santa Anita Handicap (gr. I) that year.
