Castle Village Farm’s new 2015 Claiming Partnership haltered its second horse, Spartan Emperor, claiming him for $25,000 out of the 3rd race at Belmont on Thursday, October 22nd.
Spartan Emperor is a three-year-old NY-bred chestnut gelding by Freud out of a Devil His Due mare. In four races for his previous connections, he had one win. We’ll be looking to try him on the grass before turf racing ends for the year. He replaces this partnership’s first horse, So Good to Go, who was claimed away from us in her first start in our colors.
