    I get that TV wanted an in house, devoted solely to training their horses deal. Still I think you can read between the lines with Graham's comment to the DRF:

    Motion, who was at Keeneland on Friday to start four horses – none for Team Valor – said he wanted to limit his comments to a statement he released via thisishorseracing.com. However, Motion did say, “It was always set up as something that I could walk away from, and that is what I am doing.”

    I tend to think that it's just stating that there was never a contract signed.

    In other related news, Darley has acquired an interest in Animal Kingdom and he will stand in the US after all (then shuttle to Australia for their breeding season):
