Courtly Choice Will Be Back To The Races in 2019

Wednesday, December 12, 2018  By: Elizabeth Cheesman

 

Courtly Choice’s ownership group has decided that he will race at 4.

 

“He was a fun horse to race and we are looking forward to racing him in 2019,” said Joe Thomson, Courtly Choice’s co-owner. “There are several stakes that we will be aiming for in the upcoming season.”

 

Courtly Choice’s trainer, Blake Macintosh, had mixed feelings about standing him at stud. He discussed Courtly Choice’s future with each of the owners and they decided racing would be the better option.

 

“We decided to take the initiative to support Jeff Gural with the increase in Meadowlands purses,” said Blake Macintosh.

 

The group believes that the work Gural has done to save the Meadowlands deserves their full support.

 

“We are also deciding to race him at 4 because we are unsupportive of the New York semen transport rule,” said Thomson.

 

Thomson believes that mares shouldn’t have to be shipped in state to be bred. Several of the mares being booked to Courtly were from outside the state of New York.

 

The ownership group collectively apologizes to breeders who have already booked their mares.
