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.

May he rest in Peace.

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.

Too bad about Battle of Midway. After his win in the BC Dirt Mile, it seems like he would be a very good four-year-old. This retirement feels like his connections don't have confidence in him, and that it's best to retire off that good G1 win. :?

Fuck Winstar. I hate their model.
BoM could have raced on!!! The horse ran 10 times this year and got better and better! He's clearly a sound and robust individual. Smart Strike got better with age, and this horse was likely to do so too.
I wonder who will leave the roster next???

I think they have the KRA and JBBA on speed dial - maybe Revolutionary or Fed Biz? They didn't wait for the first crop to hit the track with Take Charge Indy or Summer Bird, so really anyone can go.

FWIW, I know that not all commercial breeding operations in Kentucky can keep lower-end stallions on their rosters forever, and almost all of them will sell said stallions or relocate them. WinStar just seems to do it at a much quicker pace, with stallions yet to prove themselves... because they are stocking their barn with new, sound, race-fit three year old stallions.

DANON BALLADE (JPN) - Deep Impact x Lady Ballade by Unbridled will be the first son of Deep Impact in the UK, standing at Batsford Stud (@batsfordstud)
Image

https://www.racingpost.com/bloodstock/b ... act/304486
Danon Ballade will become the first son of Deep Impact to stand in the UK following his relocation to Alan and Tim Varey's Batsford Stud in Gloucestershire, where he will stand at a fee of £4,000.

"Danon Ballade ran 26 times and 25 of those were Graded or Listed races, proving his physical soundness, tough approach to racing and willingness to be a racehorse," said acting agent Nicola Naylor of Readswood Stud in Cheshire.

"He's a lovely, big horse with a very nice temperament. He's very correct and very straight.

"He was Deep Impact's first Graded winner in Japan, so he set the ball rolling for him there, and hopefully he can do the same for him in Britain.

American Patriot to join the Darley roster in Japan
American Patriot, G1 Maker’s Mile Stakes winner and from the family of Symboli Kris S, has been retired from racing and will join the Darley stallion roster in Japan for 2018.

Having broken his maiden, American Patriot went on to take the G3 Kent Stakes in record time. His finest hour on the racecourse came almost exactly a year later, when he flew down the Keeneland straight to win the 1600m G1 Maker’s Mile Stakes, beating previous G1 winner What A View in the process.

American Patriot hails from a very active family, with his half-brother and sister both reaching the winners’ enclosure in 2017. His dam is herself a full-sister to G1 Dubai World Cup winner Well Armed and is from the immediate female family of multiple Champion and perennial leading Japanese sire, Symboli Kris S.

American Patriot becomes the first G1-winning son on the turf of successful American stallion War Front to stand in Japan.
