Me, too. I guess Ashford considered him a bust? As a huge Bernardini fan, and as someone who loved Stay Thirsty when he ran even though most didn't, I'm upset about this.........Ok, I admit most of his offsprings success came at minor tracks, but he had Coal Front and Princess Karen.......

On a side note, I would say that Algorithms has been a successful sire - perhaps surprisingly so; am I right?

Lots of spelling errors on Twitter. I typically ignore them.

Stay Thirsty's fee is $5,000. The West Coast is happy!

Stay Thirsty Sold to Lovacres Ranch
...Stay Thirsty, who will be the only son of Bernardini standing in California, will stand for $5,000. The stallion is expected to arrive in California either over the coming weekend or early next week....

Yes, this :(

He was always overshadowed by Uncle Mo.

I will start this by saying I really liked Stay Thirsty and wish he would have been more successful and maybe he can be in California. I'm going to be brutally honest though, I think Stay Thirsty, To Honor and Serve and Algorithms have been very disappointing. Algorithms looked really promising when he finished 2nd on the Freshman Sire list, unfortunately he hasn't really followed that up with much in 2017. Truly I'm shocked that To Honor And Serve wasn't the first of the 3 to leave Kentucky. He has only sired 1 Stakes Winner and none in 2017. Ultimately unless the other 2 get big horses I see them gone from Kentucky before the 2019 breeding season because in my opinion, Stay Thirsty was the best sire of the 3, because he had sired 2 GSWs.

Edit:
I wanted to add their 2017 report of mares bred to show that breeders feel the same way I would rank them.
Stay Thirsty - 65
Algorithms - 56
To Honor And Serve - 14

Does Bernardini have any sons who are proving themselves as good sires?
If not, it would appear that Bernardini has disappointed, considering how high his stud fee was...and still is, IIRC. Looks like he may not establish his own A.P. Indy bloodline. :?
Tapit is still on top there.

I don’t know Algorithms numbers, but keep in mind that he was pretty much forgotten after his early retirement and probably wasn’t bred to that many mares. I still love him.

I wonder if Bernardini might be an excellent broodmare sire rather than a sire of sires. He’s off to a very promising start in that regard - and Indy is a terrific broodmare sire. Another good racing son, Wilburn, was a failure. Ugh, I hate to say this....but it’s so. I’ll hang my hat on his daughters.

Sparrow Castle wrote:Royal Mo Set for Stud Career in 2018
Grade 3 winner and grade 1-placed 3-year-old Royal Mo suffered a career-ending injury six days ahead of a scheduled run in the Preakness Stakes (G1) this year, but after surgery at New Bolton Center and several months to recuperate, the son of Uncle Mo is now in a position to pursue a stallion career.

The injury, which occured in his final Preakness workout at Pimlico Race Course May 14, was a severely comminuted fracture of his right front medial proximal sesamoid, which required a surgical fusion of the right front fetlock a day later.

Although Royal Mo's landing spot for his stud career has not been announced, bloodstock agent David Ingordo brokered a sale of the 3-year-old for those purposes. During his racing career Royal Mo was owned by Jerry and Ann Moss and trained by John Shirreffs. Royal Mo's new ownership also has not been announced.

Very glad to hear that he recovered and is moving on to a stud career.

aside from sunday silence, have any american stallions (or mares) gone to japan and been completely invaluable to their breeding program?

Northern Taste was Canadian-bred and he is what ultimately allowed the Yoshidas to purchase Sunday Silence (and all their other stallions). He was leading sire 11 times.
King Kamehameha while foaled in Japan is a son of Kingmambo that has been pretty influential. Unless you're really only looking for horses who were directly foaled in the US and brought there?

I guess it depends on what you mean by "completely invaluable"?

Brian's Time and End Sweep were both effective sires in Japan; not sure if they rise to the level of invaluable, though.

I think he may have a new stall and paddock at KHP.
