Sky Afleet had his second PRP treatment this morning and will start turnout this weekend.

Sky Afleet ships to Kip Elser’s Kirkwood Stables in Camden, SC toward the middle of the month. He’ll go back under saddle on the farm this fall before rejoining Tom’s string.

Honeysuckle Vine worked a bullet on Tuesday going 5F in 1:01:60   1 of 8

Sky Afleet will have his second round of PRP therapy next week before before starting turnout in a small paddock. Tom Bellhouse was out to see him earlier in the week and said, “This colt is a beast. He’s held his muscle tone really well and certainly looks the part. I think this time off will really help him as he’s certainly matured quite a bit since I saw him Belmont Stakes week.”

We went to see him on Sunday and he was a real handful full of himself and wantin gto be outside  he was calm in stall and munching on mints .

NY Bred Sales

Here are the pages from 2 yearlings we have in the sale and from article in New York Breeder with stakes winner from Six Zeroes


Sky Afleet is having laser therapy performed on his tendons every week. We saw this horse earlier in the week on the farm and he looks great. He’s holding his weight and hasn’t lost much muscle tone during the time off. We’ll rescan his tendon in a few weeks.
