Lane's End Stallions has won a ruling in a major dispute with stallion shareholder Jerry Jamgotchian, according to The Blood-Horse.
U.S. District Judge Jennifer Coffman on Thursday issued a ruling that the farm had acted properly in handling syndicate members' names. Jamgotchian, who for $350,000 bought a share in Lemon Drop Kid, sought the other members' names; the farm polled members, who voted not to release their names.
Lemon Drop Kid stands at Will Farish's Lane's End Farm in Midway.
Coffman ruled that because the other members ratified Lane's End's action, the farm "complied with the syndicate agreement in the materials it has furnished to (Jamgotchian), even though it redacted the documents to exclude identities of the owners in those materials."
Coffman also rejected Jamgotchian's request for more detailed accounting of the syndicate's books.
Richard Getty, Jamgotchian's attorney, told The Blood-Horse he plans to ask Coffman to clarify certain aspects of her ruling and that Jamgotchian may appeal.
