Sparrow Castle wrote:Royal Mo Set for Stud Career in 2018
Grade 3 winner and grade 1-placed 3-year-old Royal Mo suffered a career-ending injury six days ahead of a scheduled run in the Preakness Stakes (G1) this year, but after surgery at New Bolton Center and several months to recuperate, the son of Uncle Mo is now in a position to pursue a stallion career.

The injury, which occured in his final Preakness workout at Pimlico Race Course May 14, was a severely comminuted fracture of his right front medial proximal sesamoid, which required a surgical fusion of the right front fetlock a day later.

Although Royal Mo's landing spot for his stud career has not been announced, bloodstock agent David Ingordo brokered a sale of the 3-year-old for those purposes. During his racing career Royal Mo was owned by Jerry and Ann Moss and trained by John Shirreffs. Royal Mo's new ownership also has not been announced.

Very glad to hear that he recovered and is moving on to a stud career.

aside from sunday silence, have any american stallions (or mares) gone to japan and been completely invaluable to their breeding program?

Northern Taste was Canadian-bred and he is what ultimately allowed the Yoshidas to purchase Sunday Silence (and all their other stallions). He was leading sire 11 times.
King Kamehameha while foaled in Japan is a son of Kingmambo that has been pretty influential. Unless you're really only looking for horses who were directly foaled in the US and brought there?

I guess it depends on what you mean by "completely invaluable"?

yeah, bred here, raced here, sent there.

we've had storm cat, ap indy, tapit, etc just in recent memory. have any of our stallions that they bought and imported been that important?

Brian's Time and End Sweep were both effective sires in Japan; not sure if they rise to the level of invaluable, though.

Iron Fist (Tapit) retires to Whispering Oaks Farm in Louisiana after winning his finale at Zia Park. He's a half-brother to Sweet Lulu and a full-brother to Anchor Down.

I think he may have a new stall and paddock at KHP.

Very cool! Well deserved.
