I may have missed this but Australian stallion Helmet (sire of Thunder Snow) does not stand in Australia and hasn't for a few years. He would be the only reverse shuttler that doesn't stand in his origin country!

A shame Roaring Lion won't run on at 4, as the Kitten's Joys seem to run on but I sure would love to see him take a crack at the Breeders' Cup!

Not exactly news, but I'd like to mention that sire sons of Tapit swept the Maryland Million juvenile races.

The top three finishers of the Lassie Stakes were all aired by Tritap.

The first and second place finishers of the Nursery Stakes were sired by Bandbox.

This is especially wonderful for Tritap, since he died of colic in 2016 and this is his first of two crops. He was the first son of Tapit to stand in Maryland.

If my calculations aren't off, Australia's first crop are two year olds this year. Haven't heard anything at all, does anyone know where I could find numbers?

Always had a soft spot for the great Monarchos. I hope this guy does his sire proud.

Not sure if this is quite what you're looking for, but Coolmore's page for him has his top kiddos.

Not necessarily hard numbers but this gives me an overall idea and seems like he is doing well then! Ouija Board got me into modern day racing and I hold her near and dear so I’ve been anxious following her offspring and hoping one of them could carry on her legacy.

Harry Angel was expected, and it's nice to see that Jungle Cat will get his chance at stud. He didn't win the most prestigious G1s, but to be as sound and as versatile as he was is a feat all its own.

Hoppertunity to Enter Stud at Northview

This is a good fit for him. But the fact that Kentucky farms don't seem to be interested in this horse is what's wrong with the industry.

From the release:
What most haven’t seen yet is this horse. I went to Santa Anita to inspect him for purchase and I thought they had brought me the wrong one. How could a horse that’s run 34 times, 31 of them stakes races, have legs this clean and joints this tight?
