1 W C Jones and Seek Gold 1 W C Jones and Seek Gold - These two quickly made friends. W. C.'s the one with the blaze.

W. C. Jones raced four times and showed promise, but an injury cut short his career. Thanks to trainer Christophe Clement he has a future with Old Friends. A clever horse with a mind of his own, W. C. may not have been a winner, but he is quite the character. On the track he gave what he had and he made $15,292 for his connections. In his four maiden special weight races at Belmont he achieved a second place and a third place. Old Friends is honored to provide W. C. Jones the safe, secure retirement he has earned.
