Frank MarshallFrank Marshall (film reference) Fantasy Farms is hoping that hip 21 will be a star. The bay colt, a $325,000 KEESEP yearling, is out of a half-sister to the dam of Gr1 Santa Anita Derby hopeful On the Virg (Pulpit). Consigned by Jerry Bailey Sales Agency, agent, he was purchased for $450,000 at Barretts earlier this week. Larry Richardson signed the ticket. “I bought him for Frank Marshall - he and some of his friends are involved in Fantasy Farms.”

Frank Marshall knows something about stardom. The Hollywood honcho has produced such hits as “ Raiders of the Lost Ark, ” “ The Bourne Ultimatum, ” “ The Color Purple, ” “ Who Framed Roger Rabbit,” “ The Sixth Sense ” and, appropriately, “Seabiscuit.” It was on the set of that film that Larry Richardson ran into Marshall. “ We met when he was doing that movie, and I ’ ve been buying horses for him for a couple of years.”
