For a bloodstock agent, Peter Bradley sure seems to own his share of stakes winners. The latest in the impressive parade is Dayatthespa, a City Zip filly who took the Herecomesthebride Stakes (gr. IIIT) at Gulfstream Park March 11. In addition to selling horses, selling seasons, planning matings, and pinhooking, Bradley also puts together racing partnerships, which has resulted in him having a piece of stakes winners Wake Up Maggie, A True Pussycat, Tears I Cry, Saffron Dancer, grade II winner Pyrus, and grade III winner Gino’s Spirits.
“That was a good one,” Bradley said of the last named. “About a half hour before she went through the ring, my buyer decided he was out, so I got on the phone and made the mistake no bloodstock agent should ever make—I told Tom VanMeter I’d take a piece of her myself.”
