  1. Congrats on Mr Fantasy! I will be there to watch him live when he wins the Gotham!

    I bred, raised, sales prepped and consigned Mr. Fantasy. I sold him to West Point in August 2007. His farm name was curly and he is the best yearling I ever handled. We always felt his "greatness" The only horse I have ever felt that around at that age and I also raised his Grade II winning brother Tin Cup Chalice. He was just so smart, easy to handle and he had a perfect walk and striking conformation.

    Good Luck, hopefully we can meet sometime at one of his races.

    Wayne and I first saw Mr. Fantasy up in Saratoga, doing what he does best "eating and sleeping". When he first ran we knew that we had a "great" horse.

    Thank you for sharing and we look forward to meeting you as well at one of his races.
