Mind Your Biscuits will be getting his passport stamped for Japan when his racing career is over.

'Biscuits is following champion sprinter Drefong, who was also purchased last fall by Shadai. It would appear that Japan breeder wants to introduce more speed into his racehorses. They're known as stayers, but maybe Shadai wants to try that traditional 'speed over stamina' formula with their next generation.

It's working crazy well with Lord Kanaloa's first crop. One of the things I remember the Japanese breeders commenting was how Sunday Silence injected their horses with tremendous turn of foot. My guess is they are looking for a reliable outcross that will provide the same.

Our loss is Japan’s gain. I figured a N.Y. based Farm would want biscuits

You're very welcome! I'm sure tachyon would have posted it if I hadn't, LOL... :lol: There was a nice glimpse of Drefong and I was interested in the boots/wraps Deep Impact was wearing, I wasn't sure if they were protective or like kinesio tape, to help support his knees.

I thought that that was a good deal for Shadai.
World-class sprinter Lord Kanaloa's flying start as a sire emphasizes the importance of speed influence even in Japan, while Sunday Silence-line mares are always ready to provide stamina from the bottom.
Mind Your Biscuits is going to be the first Silver Deputy-line stallion to stand at stud in Japan and I must say Shadai has a good eye.
I suspect that both Drefong and Mind Your Buiscuits will become popular stallions.

Breeders’ Cup Winner Battle Of Midway Returns To Training Due To Subfertility
Bred to 60 mares this spring, Breeders' Cup Dirt Mile winner Battle of Midway was only able to impregnate five, according to drf.com. As such, he has been returned to training at Keeneland under the care of Rodolphe Brisset, with long-term plans to return the horse to trainer Jerry Hollendorfer's barn in Southern California.
Insurance company Great American reportedly paid out the subfertility claim, taking temporary ownership of Battle of Midway. WinStar Farm and Don Alberto Stable then re-purchased the horse from Great American to put him back into training (he never left WinStar throughout this process).
WinStar's Elliott Walden said that the 4-year-old was missing a gene that impacted the fertilization process.
“This is why you buy insurance,” said Walden.

That's too bad. You hate to see such a nice son of the late Smart Strike unable to succeed as a stallion.
I wonder if they will end up gelding him? A 'missing gene' doesn't seem like the sort of thing that can be helped by meds or nutrition. :(

Blame has really turned out to be quite the filly sire hasn't he? Aside from his group I-winning daughter in Europe, Senga, stateside he has had the dual surface graded winner Fault, and good sprinters Miss Kentucky and Marley's Freedom.

Another stallion I had somehow forgotten about who seems to be hot right now is Lookin At Lucky. On the same day he had Accelerate win the Gold Cup on dirt, his other son Money Multiplier takes the Monmouth Stakes on turf on the east coast.

And his Chilean daughter Wow Cat (CHI) won the Chilean Triple Crown last year and is now training in the U.S.

Lookin At Lucky is also doing well as a broodmare sire. Possible Belmont runner Gronkowski is out of a LAL mare.
