Two-Year Olds

The Hole in the Wall gang consignment of  two-year-olds were purchased at  the 2019 Fasig- Tipton Yearling Sale in Lexington, Kentucky. Richard Kent of  Kaizen Sales was retained to purchase horses that he identified as desirable prospects. Mr. Kent has a long history as a successful bloodstock agent, having bought and sold several thousand horses in his career. A number of those were inexpensive purchases that were later sold and went on to very successful racing careers.

All the two-year-old consigned by the Hole in the Wall Gang had 30 days of breaking in the faIl of 2019 under the supervision of trainer Mark Cloutier. Beginning January 10, 2020, they were galloped on the Canmor Farms track when the weather permitted, otherwise on the equicizer. They came to the track February 24, 2020 and have been training since.

Mark Cloutier believes all the two-year-olds will be capable of winning at Hastings. He particularly likes Adrees Run, and is also impressed by Strong Attitude, Airaffair, and Cool City
