Part of Stardom Bound sold


As part of his deal to sell 50 percent of the colt I Want Revenge to IEAH Stables, owner David Lanzman has acquired from IEAH 25 percent of the Eclipse Award-winning filly Stardom Bound, IEAH announced on Tuesday.

Both horses are scheduled to run on Saturday. I Want Revenge is headed from his base in California to New York for the Grade 1, $750,000 Wood Memorial at Aqueduct, his final prep for the May 2 Kentucky Derby at Churchill Downs. Stardom Bound is at Keeneland for the Grade 1, $400,000 Ashland Stakes, her final tune-up for the Kentucky Oaks on May 1.

"We're looking forward to the thrill of running a starter in both of the industry's two biggest races for races for 3-year-olds at this year's Oaks and Derby," Lanzman said.

The I Want Revenge sale was officially announced on Monday. No purchase price was disclosed for either horse.

"We are thrilled to further our relationship with David soon after closing on the I Want Revenge transaction," said Michael Iavarone, the co-president of IEAH.

Stardom Bound has won her last five starts, most recently the Santa Anita Oaks. She won last year's Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies to secure the Eclipse Award as champion 2-year-old filly. After that race, IEAH purchased Stardom Bound at auction for $5.7 million from the filly's previous owner, Charles Cono.

In addition to IEAH and Lanzman, Stardom Bound also counts Paul Pompa Jr. and Michael Dubb among her ownership group.
