The world is constantly shrinking. This is a good opportunity for Hansen to help grow an industry. Hope it works out well.

At least he didn't go to North Korea~

This stills saddens me.Hansen was a favorite,and I wish he'd gotten more of a chance over here to prove himself at stud before being shipped out.That being said..the money that was thrown at them must've been to much to refuse

Has there ever been another case of a stallion in KY standing stud and being sold across seas before the first foals hit the ground? IIRC, most farms are willing to wait at least until they see the first foals- again, must have been a boatload of money.

Summer Bird? But no, he had at least weanlings, right?

Yes he had weanlings when he was sold in November 2012, after his second season at stud.
