Major Zee still topic

(in reference to Major Zee post (check archives))

good question, racing is a sport where you have no choice but to run your horses where they can win. If Major is in fact only worth 4K then the spot that he needs to run in is a 4K claimer. Mark ran the horse for the tag as that is where the horse would win. Major owed Mark nothing and was on the verge of retirement. By Jason and Jeanne Ryan aquiring Marjor he now owes another investor money. I can assure you the horse will not be put into retirement until he has paid them back the investment. Whereas before his career was being managed based on his needs and abiltiy it is now being based on his ROI. There are plenty of young, fresh horses out there to aquire and invest in they did not have to invest in a horse who was winding down

    Hmmm. If Major "owed Mark nothing" and if Major meant so much to Mark, what was he doing racing him in a claimer? Why not just retire him? Whenever an owner enters a horse in a claiming race, that horse is for sale. For him to think otherwise is profoundly naive. If any one made a mistake, it was the vendor not the purchaser.

    Isn't the answer simple Jennifer? The new connections will likely run Major Zee for a 5k tag and in the very near future he may even be back to 4k. If his previous owners love him so much, they can simply claim him back. Or, they could just talk to the new owners and make an offer.
