LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Another legal claim has been made on likely Horse of the Year "Curlin." The latest action was brought by the trainer that first spotted the colt.
Trainer Kenny McPeek has sued attorneys William Gallion and Shirley Cunningham's Midnight Cry Stables. The Courier-Journal reports that McPeek alleges the stable hasn't paid up on finder's fees and breeding rights to Curlin and other horses he identified as potential money makers.
McPeek filed the suit Friday in Jefferson Circuit Court. He claims the stable didn't pay off on a contract calling for him to get a 5 percent commission on the purchase and sale price of Curlin and other horses.
