Sunday Break(JPN)(Forty Niner) died of a ruptured aneurysm at Haras de la Barbottière, France, on March 12th 2017.

at Haras de la Barbottiere, Feb 18th 2017.

I'm devastated. :cry:
I really liked him and always followed him in New York.
His Peter Pan Stakes win at Belmont Park was just beautiful.
And his 3rd place finish in the Belmont Stakes was monumental for a Japanese-bred horse.
But I firmly believe that his career best effort was his 3rd place finish in the G1 Wood Memorial at Aqueduct.
Cheering for him from the apron, I really thought he could win it as he came down the stretch in a three-way battle.
Buddha and Medaglia d'Oro were too good at the finish line, but I was very very proud of him.
I hoped he would stay in the US as a stallion, but he was transferred to France after a few years where he saw many success.
Sunday Break(JPN) was a 1/2 brother to Japanese champions Phalaenopsis(JPN)(Brian's Time) and Kizuna(JPN)(Deep Impact).
May he rest in peace.

Sunday Break was gorgeous. :(
I ran marathons. I saw the Taj Mahal by Moonlight. I drove Highway 1 in a convertible. I petted Zenyatta.

What?!?
Reports from Chilean media Thursday afternoon indicated that multiple Eclipse Award champion California Chrome will shuttle to Chile for stud duty during the Southern Hemisphere breeding season. La Hípica reported the recently-retired son of Lucky Pulpit will stand at Haras Sumaya, located near Pirque. California Chrome currently stands stud at Taylor Made Farm near Lexington, Ky.
Duncan Taylor, president of Taylor Made Farm, said no deal had officially been reached regarding California Chrome's shuttle status.
“There is no currently signed agreement,” he said. “We're still in the midst of getting it done. What you're hearing is not totally true, but it's not totally false, either. It's likely that there will be a deal done.”

Isn't it unusual for a stallion to shuttle in his very first year at stud? For Taylor Made to risk a horse of 'Chrome's stature, before he even has one foal crop on the ground, makes it seem like they are a little desperate to get more stud fees. :roll:

Didn't Animal Kingdom do this? Honestly, they might as well if there's interest. Stallion business is finicky.

Animal Kingdom started his stud career at Arrowfield in Australia. From there he shuttled to the U.S.

Well they're in the business of making stallions... so why wouldn't they be 'desperate' for their stallions to cover as many mares as possible and get their investment back as quickly as possible? Unless it's American Pharoah aka one of the most valuable stallion prospects ever, most new stallions, at least those at major farms like Darley and Coolmore, shuttle. If anything, they become less likely to shuttle the more years they spend at stud if they shape up to be superstars, a la Galileo and Dubawi. Or if they end up being duds, a la Big Brown.

I'm sure Chromies will start moaning about greed and say Martin is the one behind this, but Chrome isn't a pet, he is a breeding stallion that has shareholders.
