Re: Mendelssohn

I was expecting the Pegasus. The Cigar Mile is a surprise. I love AOB and for the most part admire his operation. I love this horse and feel he hasn't had the best chance to shine . I wonder what this horse might be capable of giving with some time off and a 4yo campaign, stabled in America. Wish A...

Re: Stallion News

While that's good news for California breeders, it doesn't seem to be a positive commentary on his Japanese breeding career. :oops: Big Red Farm paid $10 million for him, and now they're shipping him back to California after only five seasons?
