Breeders Take a Quarter Interest in $2.7-Million Colt

Arthur Hancock and Robert McNair have bought back a quarter interest in the Fasig-Tipton Saratoga sale-topping colt they bred from buyer Padua Stables.

"They are two great people, and we are friends with them," said Padua's general manager, Nadia Sanan, of the decision to form a partnership for the $2.7-million Unbridled -- Words of War colt.

Hancock also confirmed that the deal had been struck.

The colt has been sent to Padua in Florida. A trainer has not been chosen, Sanan said.
