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


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.

Oken Bruce Lee(JPN)(Jungle Pocket) sired his first graded winner when his 3yo colt Oken Moon(JPN)[o/o Moon Phase(JPN) by Helissio(FR)] won the G3 Kyodo Tsushin Shin Hai 1800m turf at Tokyo, one of the major prep races for the Classic races on Feb 11th 2018.

Oken Bruce Lee(JPN), the G1 Kikuka Sho winner in 2008, had not been popular at stud and covered only one mare in 2017.
I'm so happy for Oken Bruce Lee!!!!! :D :D :D
I'm 100% sure that he will get much more mares this year.

I don't like some of those fake news about the Japanese racing that prevails on the internet.
But we Japanese fans do love you Kate! ;)

@Keibakate
Most Fun To Watch Stallion Award of this year’s Parades goes to Creator! Who put on the best show of them all! Lots of top notch rearing in a showman-like fashion! (<-- I agree 100% with you, haha!)

I guess the Tapit boys felt extra-energetic? :P
The photos are handsome and powerful...but I have to think that the handlers weren't really happy that their multi-million-dollar charges were up that high on their hind legs. One little loss of balance on that hard ground could bring serious injury to a very expensive stallion. :(
