I was hopeful that, with the addition of Caravaggio to the Irish roster, they'd let us have No Nay Never back :D Darn! The planned retirement of Churchill does surprise me, though. It's not like they have a shortage of Galileo sons.

I'm delighted that Lani will get his chance at stud. And I'm sorry at the loss of Swept Overboard. Time is no one's friend.

Speaking of Chrome, Haras Sumaya is having two open houses for him November 18 and November 25 before he goes back to Kentucky:

Chrome is looking absolutely magnificent. The folks at Haras Sumaya took great care of him.

That promo program TM is doing for their three young stallions is interesting and, as far as I know, innovative. I'd be curious what folks on this board think of it.

Battle of Midway Retired to WinStar
‘TDN Rising Star’ Battle of Midway (Smart Strike–Rigoletta, by Concerto), upset winner of the GI Breeders’ Cup Dirt Mile at Del Mar and also third in this year’s GI Kentucky Derby, has been retired from racing and will take up stud duty in 2018 at WinStar Farm. His fee will be $20,000 S&N.

The $410,000 FTSAUG yearling graduate, campaigned in partnership by Don Alberto Stable and WinStar Farm, was trained by Hall of Famer Jerry Hollendorfer.

“We are extremely proud of Battle of Midway and the tremendous performance he put forth in the Breeders’ Cup Dirt Mile, passing such a fast horse as Sharp Azteca and doing so in such a fast time,” said Elliott Walden, WinStar President & CEO.
