Lester, you would buy a horse from Roger Stein? I don't think the horse is for sale or that Roger would sell him to you.
I talked to Stein about the horse, I didn't like the terms of the sale, I will be watching the horse very closely and I may claim him when he runs.
Lets see if the horse even makes it to the race track.
I will never buy a untested horse, I rather have a cheap claimer from Los Al before I hand down that type of money.
The horse will run first in a M S weight then drop like a bomb, then I get the horse at a reasonable price,
Right now, he wants to much money.
I wouldn't pay over 5 g's for the horses, then give him a short rest and retrain him again for the track.
Lester, for things like this, you never want to show your hand.

Getting a horse who has survived breaking, training, workout regiment and is looking for it's first race is being a little ahead of the game, waaay ahead of buying a yearling.
If he looks good his first race his price goes up, but then you really don't know how he came out of the race if you act too soon. (see Violence).
It's still a gamble. Try to get an analysis of his workouts - not from the person who's selling.
Thank God for the Federal Reserve. You can't have big government or big wars without them.
