Earth Angel is a lovely, refined filly. I'm also an Animal Kingdom fan and glad that he was well-supported with such quality mares like Miss Finland in Australia.

Does anyone know any other group I winners/producers that visited him down there?

Spending Time With Tapit
http://cs.bloodhorse.com/blogs/throughthelens/archive/2017/03/10/spending-time-with-tapit.aspx
On cold wet days, Venegas lets Tapit dry and then uses a vacuum to clean off all the mud on the stallion. Then he gets groomed, his mane and tail combed, his body brushed. Like a massage, Tapit seems to feel good and enjoy the attention. He often interacts with Venegas while getting groomed in his stall heaped with straw.

I've noticed that most stallions (unless they're real people-haters) are quite hedonistic. They love physical attention like grooming, withers scratches and tongue-pulling. Of course, their attempts at reciprocating the physical attention can be a bit rough. :P ;)

Tapit is fabulous. I love the photos accompanying that article, especially the one where he's so muddy, lol. :lol:

Prayer for Relief has finally retired. He will arrive at pleasant acres stallions in Florida next week. He will breed mares this season

He's extremely good looking. I hadn't seen him in a long time, then he showed up at Keeneland for the Ben Ali. He was definitely a man among boys in the paddock.

I love Prayer for Relief! I think he's a very attractive stallion prospect, and I'm a huge fan of his sire. I hope he does well.

Clyde's first black-type stakes winner today. (Article says her dam Soave died earlier this year.)

Fifty Five Sets Stakes Record in Florida Oaks
Homebred Fifty Five, the first black-type stakes winner for Crestwood Farm's second-crop sire Get Stormy, rallied willingly March 11 in the $200,000 Florida Oaks (G3T) to eke out a neck tally over grade 3 winner La Coronel, picking up her first graded victory and setting a stakes record in the process.

Durable to boot. Not many stallions retiring sound at 9 after 50 starts. Not a bad addition to the gene pool.
