Bagavond Arrives at Carousel Farm for Winter Break. CVF’s six-year-old NY-bred gelding Bagavond (Abaginone-Stylish Aristocrat) has arrived at Diana McClure’s Carousel Stables in northern Virginia, where he’ll get an extended winter break.  In his abbreviated 2009 campaign, Bagavond had a win (in an allowance race at Belmont) and a second, from three starts.  He then developed some ankle problems, which we’re confident can be fixed with some rest and a bit of treatment. Since he’s a turf specialist, Bagavond usually takes the winter off anyway, and we’re planning on having him ready for the start of turf racing in New York in 2010.
