I really like the look of Kitasan Black and Logotype. Drefong doesn't scream "speed" as you'd think he would based on his race record.

Satano Aladdin looks like the head/neck of one horse was tied into the body of another.

Love the look of Kitasan Black and Logotype. Most of those stallions are very handsome, but Drefong is surprisingly attractive. He's just a nicely-balanced package, and I think that he looks less like a typical sprint type and more like his sire.
IMHO, his surprise purchase may turn out to be quite a coup for the Japanese.

Agree with the above posts- Defong is a long body type than a typical sprinter- tend to be more compact and have a larger booty :D

Drefong reminds me a lot of his sire. Neither are as husky as Tale of the Cat.

Defrong has a lovely shoulder.

They're all attractive, but there's something especially appealing about Logotype.

Logotype looks like an Arabian, specifically in the neck/shoulder and hind end. His tail is set very high for a TB.

Good to see I'll Have Another. He looks good. How's he doing so far in his stud career?

I'll Have Another was the #2 first-crop-sire in 2016.
He has sired 70 winners from 156 staters so far in his first two crops, which is not too bad.
So it's to be hoped that he will sire his first stakes winner sooner than later.
He has had two grade stakes placed.

Girolamo moves to Korea from Kentucky
Girolamo, a Grade 1 winner, has been exported to continue his stallion career in Korea for the 2018 breeding season. The 12-year-old son of A.P. Indy previously stood at Darley’s Jonabell Farm base in Lexington, Ky., for an advertised fee of $10,000. He began his stud career in New York.

Records from the Korean Racing Authority show Girolamo entered the country Jan. 29.

Girolamo has sired four crops of racing age, with 76 winners and progeny earnings of more than $7.4 million. His most successful runners include multiple Grade 2 winner Highway Star, Grade 1-placed stakes winner She’s All Ready, and stakes winners T Loves a Fight, Louisville First, Libreta, and Crawdaddy.

Ah frack. :evil:
With the export of Girolamo and Take Charge Indy, it would seem that everyone but the US prizes 'Indy's sons. :(
Everyone wants a Tapit, but IMHO it's not fabulous to funnel 'Indy's genes through just one stallion, even one as fabulous as Tapit. :P

European Champion Aljabr passed away today. Grade 1 winning son of Storm Cat at 2, 3 and 4.

He was pensioned at Shadwell.

Aljabr was one handsome hunk of horseflesh. He was a very good two-year-old who came back from a fracture to win a group I as an older horse.

Take Charge Indy was a downer, since he had barely proved himself. However, I don't think we are losing much with Girolamo's sale. He had a few years at a top farm and just wasn't a world beater in the shed.

We've still got Bernardini, Malibu Moon, Flatter, Mineshaft, Super Saver, and hopefully Honor Code, etc.

Encryption, Anaximandros to stand at The Cherry Orchard
Encryption and Anaximandros will enter stud at The Cherry Orchard in Lexington, Ky., for the 2018 breeding season after selling as stallion prospects at the Fasig-Tipton Kentucky winter mixed sale.

Peter Doth, owner of The Cherry Orchard, said both horses will stand privately.
