Totally correct. Vanlandingham was NO DOUBT Shug for the Loblolly Stable. I went brain dead there and I have a story about a friend trying to call me the day Shug shipped this one up on Suburban Day after a blistering CD Work and at 10-1 who won by 10 and I was playing golf pre cell phone. How about that answering machine message when I got home....ugh
I believe I was thinking about Theatrical for Mott. First owned by Firestone then Paulson or a little of both. A couple of powerhouse operations from 25+ years ago
Yes these guys landed in some of these jobs at the recommendation of the Lexington Blue Blood crowd. Good man good horseman does right by the horse type of thing. Mott personally lost both his parents at a young age. Learned under Van Berg. Literally slept in a few stalls. He would saddle a Heatherten and then a $5,000 claimer in the last at CD with the same level of attention. Its who he is.
