Futura – It’s Official

Ultimatum leads to part dissolution of Futura partnership

Justin Snaith – Futura’s new trainer

In a press release issued today by Snaith Racing, the circumstances surrounding the champion Futura’s transfer from trainer Brett Crawford has been set out.

The majority partners of Futura, Jack Mitchell and John Freeman, wished to record that they were presented with an ultimatum by their partner that they either buy him out or sell Futura to an overseas buyer, failing which he would force Futura to be sold by public auction within a matter of days.

His offer to sell has been accepted and the remaining partners felt it untenable to continue in a stable where their ex-partner has close ties.

Therefore, Futura has been moved to Snaith Racing. The intention is to race the horse in Durban for the season and thereafter decide on his future.

Jack Mitchell and John Freeman wish to thank Brett Crawford for his magnificent handling of Futura and would like to record that the move in no way casts doubt on his ability as a racehorse trainer. They wish him every success in future.
