IIRC, De Coronado has done better on the track than either of Zen's boys. I'm kind of surprised that Coolmore has sold him, as that pedigree is sure to attract some breeders, even if he never gets a Group win. And he's a handsome horse.
I wonder if this move shows their opinion that Vertigineux's legacy as a broodmare is not panning out, and they didn't see any place for him at Ballydoyle as a stud. :?

If they are willing to sell Henrythenavigator, Duke of Marmalade, Black Sam Bellamy, John F Kennedy, Gallante, etc., De Coronado never had a chance. Unless you're a star on the track and hit the ground running with your first 3 crops, no one is guaranteed a stall at Ballydoyle or Coolmore. If they don't want to keep a (second) son of Urban Sea, they probably didn't bat an eye selling a son of Vertigineux.

I wouldn't be surprised to see De Coronado standing somewhere as a National Hunt stallion at some point. The family has plenty of stamina and for a couple hundred Euro, some breeders might be interested.

I know I should know this but :oops: ...who was the Urban Sea son they sold?

I'm not surprised at all. Coolmore would never stand this quality of racehorse at their farm.

I am surprised that he wasn't sold to the US though.

He's so fuzzy! I'm surprised he hasn't been given a racing clip.

Mask, the winner of the MMM at Gulfstream, is now a stakes winning Tapit colt out of a stakes winning Yonaguska half sister to Bullsbay. What an impressive run, he did that for fun. First start in 2 1/2 months.

I've found it easier to tear up tickets at 8/1 instead of 8/5.

Well, that stinks.
Went to watch CalRacing, and as of yesterday it's all gone to a paid 3rd party vendor :evil:
