The owners of 2009 Kentucky Derby Presented by Yum! Brands (gr. I) winner Mine That Bird have taken the son of Birdstone away from trainer Chip Woolley and shipped him to Hall of Fame conditioner D. Wayne Lukas.
Woolley, who was a popular figure on the Triple Crown trail last year
when he hobbled the stable areas on crutches due to a broken leg while
wearing his trademark cowboy hat, said May 19 that he was informed the
previous day by owners Dr. Leonard Blach and Mark Allen that a change
was in order.
