    Default Weltino's Magic--who here wants to buy him?

    I think I need to go out and start buying lottery tickets so I can find the $750,000 to buy him. I'd love to have that horse! I think that's actually cheap, for what he's accomplished.

    Who else is going to be buying lottery tickets in the hopes of having enough money to buy him? (Like he's not already sold. Probably was before the annoncement was made. )

    When's the next lottery drawing....??

    He is a lovely horse for sure. But honestly, if I were to buy a big money horse, it would not be Weltino's Magic. IMO what makes this horse is that he is impeccably trained and shown. But he is not an exciting horse.

    Now IF I could rank our team Pan Am horses I would most like to buy: Paragon first, Grandioso 2nd, Big Tyme 3rd.

    Gee, I don't know. I saw him at the Symposium, and loved him.

    Unfortunately, several zeros would have to come off that asking price for him to be in my price range!

    A friend of mine who is an ammie photographer took some pictures of their freestyle once. This was probably a year ago. In the still photos, you can see Steffan's contortions to wring the movements out of that horse. No thanks!

    Good luck getting any of those for 750k!
