If some stallions are too valuable to risk shipping to the other side of the planet, Tapit probably qualifies. :P :lol:
Also doubt that Galileo will ever leave Ireland.

Not at his current age.....but he did early on. He did 5 or 6 seasons shuttling to Australia but was a flop compared to his northern hemisphere results. As valuable as he has become in the last 15 years, I'm sure had he had similar success in Australia he'd still be flying....or would have been until recently...

Thanks for the A.P. Indy pics, Sparrow Castle! He looks happy and content - and spoiled rotten - as it should be. I'll bet he's happy to see those signs of spring in the Blue Grass too.

Happy 28th A.P. !

He will be the first son of Kitten's Joy to stand down under. I wonder how he will be received by breeders.
