Lol....just saw your wit full enquirey...lol...Mendelssohn ...lol....why...rejuvenation can or may rebuild a future for him...but Justify has done all he can and to many trainers and owners want to beat him if only for breeding possibilities etc etc...lol...thanks for the question...lol...oooohhhhh....and ' I ' would Un-retire him and run him in graded races at tracks he can win and in graded races he can also win at distances he has a good stride etc for....o k. ...lol
Loss....big loss since he had to house and feed etc the horse and never raced him cause then the horse would have additional costs of travel etc and then there,s vet costs etc etc...lol..and then advertising costs to sell the horse and so on....lol...PS : this person in the horse sales must be one of those farmers who city folk jest about in negative jokes etc....lol..
I've always been a sucker for these word puzzles that contain a trap I fail to see. However, without knowing how long he held the horse each time, or what his expenses might have been during the holding periods, I'd hazard to say that he made a net profit of $20 over the two transactions.
And I'd agree with Hoop about sending 4 mares to Mendelssohn
