Vinery privately purchased the breeding rights to Silver Train.

Buckram Oak Farm campaigns Silver Train, a 4-year-old Old Trieste colt. To date, he has compiled a record of 5-3-3 from 14 starts and $1,127,345 in earnings.

Vinery will announce Silver Train's stud fee at the end of his racing career, Ludt said.
