      Too bad for the new connections.

      Both of the Pletcher horses were claimed.
      $625,000 + training and other costs invested and $62,500 + a
      pittance in purse money returned. More than half a million down the drain.

        Chad Brown's Unlockthepotential also won and was claimed for $16,000, another $200,000 up in smoke.

              In today's 5th race, Peaceful Feeling won & was claimed for 50 grand, $200,000 less than she cost.
              Pletcher's Avocado finished 3rd and goes back home.

              In the 7th Ms. Maximum, finished 4th and stays with Pletcher.

              Owners of race horses get to depreciate their stock over 3 years.
              So, I guess that while losing expensive horses in claimers after a couple of years is a rotten deal,
              it's not so bad for millionaires.
