Trainer John Shirreffs will have a stable in New York this spring,
and plans to have divisions of his nationally prominent stable on two
coasts in the future, he said on Sunday.
Shirreffs said he is in the process of contacting his clients to
determine which horses will be sent to New York, and which will race in
California. He said it was unclear how many horses would be based at
Belmont Park in New York, but that approximately 25 to 30 would remain
“I’ve got to talk to my owners and see what they’re comfortable with,” he said.
