American Patriot, G1 Maker’s Mile Stakes winner and from the family of Symboli Kris S, has been retired from racing and will join the Darley stallion roster in Japan for 2018.

Having broken his maiden, American Patriot went on to take the G3 Kent Stakes in record time. His finest hour on the racecourse came almost exactly a year later, when he flew down the Keeneland straight to win the 1600m G1 Maker’s Mile Stakes, beating previous G1 winner What A View in the process.

American Patriot hails from a very active family, with his half-brother and sister both reaching the winners’ enclosure in 2017. His dam is herself a full-sister to G1 Dubai World Cup winner Well Armed and is from the immediate female family of multiple Champion and perennial leading Japanese sire, Symboli Kris S.

American Patriot becomes the first G1-winning son on the turf of successful American stallion War Front to stand in Japan.

That's wonderful news!
I guess that he is going to be a popular stallion in Japan.

Bobby Flay just bought his dam, Life Well Lived by Tiznow, for $1.25mil at the Keeneland Sale. Can't wait to see how he matches up with the mares in Japan.

Kobe’s Back Retired to Bonita Farm
The multiple graded stakes winner Kobe’s Back (Flatter–Well, by Well Decorated) has been retired to stand stud at Bonita Farm in Darlington, Maryland. The 6-year-old will command a fee of $3,000.

The $480,000 OBS March purchase won his first stakes in the Willard L. Proctor Memorial Stakes as a juvenile at Hollywood Park, defeating California Chrome (Lucky Pulpit) in the process. The half brother to GSW Well Spelled (Spellbinder) won his first graded stakes in his sophomore bow in the GII San Vicente S. He went on to capture three more graded events in his career: the GII Palos Verdes S. and GII San Carlos S. at Santa Anita, and the GIII Commonwealth S. at Keeneland.

Campaigned by C R K Stable and trainer Peter Eurton, Kobe’s Back retires with a record of 26-5-3-5 and earnings of $1,116,595.

BoM could have raced on!!! The horse ran 10 times this year and got better and better! He's clearly a sound and robust individual. Smart Strike got better with age, and this horse was likely to do so too.
I wonder who will leave the roster next???
Artie Schiller for one.

Got a reply from Swifty farms- he is doing very well, and they said he is a very nice horse to be around.

Looks like Darley is jumping on the War Front bandwagon - I think American Patriot will be more popular than The Factor, but hopefully both are well received.

Do you know what it means when it says "Struck off'? I've never heard that term.
Thanks!

Thanks for this. Rather dismayed not to find Corporate Jungle on the list, especially considering they continue to list deceased stallions. I had heard several years ago that CJ had recovered from the sesamoid injury suffered in his last race and had arrived in India for stud duty. Wish I knew what happened to him (he's one of those horses I irrationally got attached to just because I interacted with him in person).

Ruis to Stand Saburo and War Envoy in California
Ruis Racing announced Nov. 14 that Saburo and War Envoy will enter stud for 2018 at Tom and Debi Stull's Tommy Town Thoroughbreds near Santa Ynez, Calif. They will be the first sons of leading sires Medaglia d'Oro and War Front , respectively, to stand in the Golden State.

Saburo will stand for $3,500, while War Envoy's stud fee has been set at $5,000.

Medaglia d'Oro's son Saburo was purchased by Ruis at last year's Fasig-Tipton Midlantic 2-year-olds-in-training sale for $600,000, which was the second-highest price for a colt at the auction. He is out of the Lemon Drop Kid mare Kid Majic, who hails from the family of Eclipse champion Proud Spell. Kid Majic is also the dam of Miss Mischief, a multiple stakes winner of nearly $523,000.

"I purchased Saburo because I loved the way he moved and because I love the family, which is still very active," Mick Ruis said. "His dam has a Bernardini and a nice Tapit in the pipeline. A little further back is the 2-year-old stakes winner Dak Attack, who is undefeated and should be on the (Kentucky) Derby trail next spring."

War Envoy, by War Front, emerged from his debut victory in April of his 2-year-old season to become one of Europe's leading juveniles in 2014. He placed in a trio of group events before shipping to Santa Anita Park for the Breeders' Cup Juvenile Turf (G1T), where he was beaten just four lengths as the favorite after a brutal trip. The colt continued to show his toughness and versatility throughout three subsequent seasons, racing at 15 different tracks, in five countries, and on dirt and turf. He earned nearly $500,000.

"I have so much admiration for War Envoy. He always tried but didn't always have the best of luck," Ruis said. "He's another with a good family—his third dam is Winning Colors—and his full brother just sold for $750,000 to Cheveley Park Stud at Keeneland September. We plan to support both War Envoy and Saburo with a good numbers of our own mares. In fact, we're looking to buy some mares as we speak."

"California breeders have been clamoring for access to these two sire lines and they sure won't be disappointed when they see Saburo and War Envoy," added Tom Stull. "We're ecstatic to be partnering with the Ruis family on these two promising stallions."

Did Saburo ever make it to the races? Or did Ruis pay $600,000 for an unraced stallion prospect? :?
Well, I suppose it wouldn't be the first time a stallion with a good pedigree but little-or-no race resume went on to do well as a sire.

Perhaps the best example of such a stallion is Raise a Native. He went on to become one of the breed's dominant sires, true, but at the time of his retirement, he had a very thin racing record. He was by Native Dancer, but his dam's side of the pedigree was average. As is now legend, Raise a Native ran only four times as a 2-year-old. He was undefeated, but won only two stakes, one of which would probably be unlisted by today's graded rankings. All of his races were 5.5 furlongs or less, but he did set three track records before being injured and retired. He was named champion 2-yr-old on the strength of those track records. One wonders if a horse like Raise a Native would even be given a chance in today's hyper commercialized breeding industry.

Not a problem- when I saw it, I knew others here would have an interest. It's funny, I was just thinking about C P West the other day- and he was on the stud list. What a handsome boy he is. I remember seeing him up at the Spa.

Thanks for the link! I must have forgotten that Air Support is there. Also Marcus Andronicus and Mr Mellon and Mull of Kintyre and Ravel and Sedgefield (English Channel's full brother) and Whatsthescript. They sure do have some nice horses at stud there.

Thanks for the link.
Unfortunately, I just discovered that Dancing Forever has been deceased for quite a while. According to the website, he died June 2013, only 3 years after he was exported to India. :(
I always loved watching him run. Too bad he died way too young.

Is Point Given done as a stallion? No 18 fee announced and not on Calumet's website any more.
