Karen Johnson's take in the recap of Day 2 - this is the first mention of the mysterious bidder of hip #151 that I saw. She called him an "interloper" 9:11 am
Later the story emerged as our Deirdre B. Biles investigated the story. She posted the story Wed morning on Aug 12 at 3:02 am.
"a bizarre incident that involved a well-bred dark bay or brown filly, a bald man in a plaid shirt, at least three Fasig-Tipton officials, and several policemen during the second and final session of the Fasig-Tipton Saratoga select yearling sale"
Then another story arose from the auctions at Keeneland "'I remember one year at Keeneland some lady was walking around with a scan of her brain and telling everybody she had had a lobotomy. That’s the closest thing I could compare this to.'"
