I recall sometime earlier this year there was discussion about Ramsey cutting back on what he owned and a focus on quality over quantity. Maybe focusing more on sales and running in G1 company versus winning claiming titles. I think his kids/grandkids were pushing this. Can't dig up the article at work.

Ah - missed that bit of news. That makes sense, then. Money problems doesn't really make sense considering the quality of the mares I saw booked in the sales. He is not selling his best broodmares.

Astern is handsome, but he had his greatest success as a two-year-old. Looks like Darley is going to stand their own version of a precocious MdO colt, like Coolmore's Golden Slipper winner, Vancouver.
Both colts are stunners, although I think I like Vancouver's looks better. I'm eager to see how the two MdO boys do in the US, as their offspring could reasonably excel on both dirt and turf.

Holy Boss Retired to Maryland’s Anchor & Hope Farm
‘TDN Rising Star’ Holy Boss (Street Boss–Holy Grace, by Holy Bull), winner of the 2015 GII Amsterdam S. and third in that year’s GI King’s Bishop S., has been retired from racing and will enter stud for 2018 at Anchor & Hope Farm.

Bred by Adena Springs, Holy Boss graduated by better than 10 lengths at first asking, earning the Rising Star designation, and won his first four starts at three, capped by a 2 1/4-length victory in the Amsterdam. He was behind champion Runhappy (Super Saver) in the King’s Bishop and again when a creditable fourth in the GI Breeders’ Cup Sprint. Runner-up to A. P. Indian (Indian Charlie) in the 2016 GI A. G. Vanderbilt H., Holy Boss added a victory in the Duncan F. Kenner S. at the Fair Grounds earlier this winter. He heads to stud with six wins from 22 starts and earnings of $771,527.

I stand corrected on his resume. :oops:
I look forward to seeing a conformation shot on both colts...that should be a pleasant comparison. :D

From a quote from someone who has seen both he and Vancouver, they said Astern is much more your typical Australian type, while Vancouver more the American type. Take that for what you will...

Dual Grade 1 Winner Gormley Retired To Spendthrift Farm
Gormley, Malibu Moon's winner of the FrontRunner S. (G1) at two and Santa Anita Derby (G1) this year at 3, has been retired from racing and taken up residency at B. Wayne Hughes' Spendthrift Farm in Lexington, KY, where he will enter stud new for 2018.

Now available for inspection, Gormley is the newest stallion to be offered through Spendthrift's renowned Share The Upside program. His Share The Upside fee will be $12,500 on a two-year commitment, and breeders will earn a lifetime breeding right beginning in 2020 after having two live foals and paying the stud fees. For the first time, Spendthrift is offering breeders the option of breeding two mares the first year in 2018, however, to earn the lifetime breeding right they must also breed at least one mare in 2019 free of charge. For breeders not interested in the Share The Upside program, Gormley will be offered for $10,000 on a standard stands and nurses contract.
