The Blood-Horse features Birdstone in video


Wednesday, July 01, 2009 |
The Blood-Horse was out at Gainesway Farm over the summer to interview Director of Sales Michael Hernon and Assistant Stallion Director Carl Buckler about the success of Birdstone, sire of two Classic winners from his first crop: Kentucky Derby (G1) winner Mine That Bird and Belmont S. (G1) winner Summer Bird.

Summer Bird most recently won the Travers S. (G1) at Saratoga to become the first racehorse since his sire Birdstone to win both of New York’s premier 3-year-old stakes. Birdstone pulled the Belmont-Travers double in 2004.
