Sean Avery, a 7-year-old Kentucky-bred gelding by Cherokee Run, was sold for $30,000 at the 2007 Keeneland September Yearling Sale. Racing for Black Swan Stable, he won seven races in 14 starts and earned $398,640 for Black Swan Stable. He was retired to Old Friends this year.
Didn't know he was retired. Too bad.

Poseidon’s Warrior, who had a neck in front of Justin Phillip at the finish line in the Grade 1 Alfred G. Vanderbilt on August 5 at Saratoga, will look to prove his 26-1 victory was no fluke as he joins the field of sprinters likely to run in the Grade 1, $400,000 Vosburgh Invitational.Read More

Sean Avery's back on top!
  • yukichan · Amen! It was just a year ago that he was sidelined with a bowed tendon. Today, he won the Affiliate Stakes at Belmont. This is Sean's 6th first place finish in his last nine races. He's won 7 times in 11 starts, and he's finished out of the money just once. Another come back kid!! · 586 days ago ·

Sean Avery makes his return in the Turf Monster Handicap-G3 at Parx, Monday, Race 11.
Terrible news. His victory against Trappe Shot was no fluke. I hoped to see him in the Breeders' Cup.
Coil earned an automatic entry into the Breeders Cup Classic with his win in the 44th running of the Haskell Invitational. It was an uncharacteristic come from behind victory for the Bob Baffert trained three year-old, “He didn’t break well, and at that point I thought the race was over. Down the ba...Read More

Vanderbilt Handicap in good shape.   “He ate up everything, and his legs were ice cold this morning,” said Iwin...Read More
No, that wasn’t NHL commissioner Gary Bettman commenting on one of his league’s highest profile players. That was John DeStefano after his horse won yesterday’s Grade 1 Vanderbilt Handicap. Oh, sure, the human and the equine have a few things in common. Both have had time…Read More
You had to wonder though if this five-year-old gelded son of former Stanley Cup Champion, Cherokee Run could take it all the way. Not only has he been besieged by injuries during his career, but just last week the winger was arrested for allegedly shoving a police officer outside his stall. That mad...Read More
