Coolmore, which purchased a stake in subsequent juvenile champion Shanghai Bobby (Harlan’s Holiday) last fall, has doubled its GI Kentucky Derby hopefuls by obtaining a stake in Let’s Go Stable’s Verrazano (More Than Ready). "The Coolmore team of Michael Tabor, Derrick Smith and Mrs. John Magnier have purchased a stake in Verrazano and will race him in partnership with Let's Go Stable," confirmed Bryan Sullivan who, along with Kevin Scatuorchio, manages Let’s Go Stable. "We have a long association with Coolmore, as Kevin’s father James raced Scat Daddy, who has made such a great start to his stud career at Ashford." Verrazano was tabbed a TDN Rising Star with his 7 3/4-length debut victory at Gulfstream Jan. 1 and became a bona fide Derby contender with his 16 1/4-length allowance romp in Hallandale Feb. 2.
