We moved Bright to Once Over Farm in Morgan Hill on Thursday. He had finished his first three months of initial training at Legacy and I wanted him a little closer to me so I could visit. He is only 45 minutes away now. I am very excited for him because he will have 6 weeks off and then go back in training with Efrain Guzman. Efrain trained Bold Cheiftain who just won the $500,000 Sunshine Millions race today at Santa Anita. Bold Chieftain has never raced outside of California but he is one of those rare Cal breds that has won over $1.4 million. Great horse. Efrain has great hands and is very patient with young horses. He gives them alot of personal attention. Bright will probably be with Efrain for at least 3-4 months before heading South. There is lots of growing for him to do in the Spring, but mostly it will be filling out and modeling the bone in his legs. Already though, he's a strong handsome colt.  Look how he has nice muscle on his front legs and a great top line.  BJ is at least 16' 1 now and he is taller than his sire - and much different than his dam in body type.  Lady Marquise was like a Quarter Horse.  Its interesting to see how he is the best of both of them.  He has all of Good Journey's flashy fantastic looks and some really great bone structure from his dam.
