Bloodstock agent Clark Shepherd reports that BAOZUN (g, 2, Maclean’s Music–Ron’s Lady, by Elhayq (IRE)) attended the pace along the inside and angled out leaving the turn. He wore down the leaders and edged clear late to win by one length on the sloppy Churchill Downs strip. The gelding now has two wins from only three starts. Baozun is from the immediate family of the late Eclipse Award Champion Lawyer Ron. Sales history: $22,000 Ylg ’18 FTKFEB. Owner-Highlander Training Center; Breeder-Wesley Melcher (TX); Trainer-Bret Calhoun.
Clark Shepherd (Shepherd Equine Advisers), bloodstock agent for Larry Hirsch (Highlander Training Center), purchased Baozun (Maclean’s Music) at the 2018 Fasig-Tipton Winter Mixed Sale from the consignment of Buckland Sales.
