LOS ALAMITOS RACE COURSE, CYPRESS, CA…. Harems Legacy, the $330,000 sale topper at the Los Alamitos Equine Sale, has been syndicated owner Ed Allred has announced.
“I thought about it Saturday night and decided that it would be great fun to share ownership of Harems Legacy,” Allred said. “We divided ownership of Harems Legacy into 20 shares. I’ve kept 10 shares and we made 10 shares available for $30,000 each. A lot of big name owners stepped up right away and we’ve already sold all 10 shares. A lot of top players are now involved with this horse.”
  Double Bar S Ranch, Bud Alessio, James Markum, Vessels Stallion Farm, Kim Kessinger, Robert Wood, Howard Nichols, Dr. Steve Burns, Anita Bramlette and BR Livestock are the 10 members of this new syndication.
   “I am going to pay for all the bills and all of the futurity payments on the horse,” Allred said. “The syndication partners will never have to pay a single bill on this horse while he runs. They’ll make all the decisions as to which races this horse runs in, with the only condition being that the horse will race in California. It should be great fun.”
  Sired by First Down Dash and out of Harems Choice, Harems Legacy is a full-brother to 1991 All American Futurity winner Royal Quick Dash, champion First Sovereign and 2003 Los Alamitos Million winner A Regal Choice. Vessels Stallion Farms consigned him to the Los Alamitos Equine Sale.
“When this horse retires the syndication partners will each get two breeding shares on the horse to do whatever they want with them. They can sell them if they want. At that point I will have more influence on the horse and the decisions that involve the horse. He’ll likely stand at Vessels Stallion Farm and If we’re lucky enough to see Harems Legacy develop like his brothers, then we’ll really have a lot of fun.”
