Tips n' Tales

Tuesday, April 20, 2010  By: Ralph Sucee


Time flies, especially as time passes. The last time this column featured John Kopas was in the fall of 2003. The topic at that time was yearling selection, and Kopas shared his thoughts and approach to choosing “next year’s champions” from the 4,000 plus yearlings that pass through the auction ring each year. 


Back then, Kopas and I traded personal (unpublished) observations on a variety of topics. It was early in the stallion career of Rustler Hanover, and Kopas had thoughts about Rustler Hanover that differed from many others. “Personally, I like the Rustler Hanover’s.”

Since then, Kopas has had Style (p, 3, 1:51.3, $574,140) in 2005-06 (an $18,000 yearling); and the homebred Keystone Horatio (p, 4, 1:49.3, $1,344,549), a two-year-old of 2006. Style and Keystone Horatio are the richest filly and colt sired by Rustler Hanover thus far. We caught up with Kopas recently, to update our files.
