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

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.
