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.
Super Saver.is by Maria's Mon.

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! ;)

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. :(

He looks like he just came out of the rain, lol. Love that horse SO, SO much. No words can express how happy I am that he's lived to such an advanced age. Happy Valentine's Day old man. You'll be in my heart forever.

That photo of Giant's Causeway is breathtakingly beautiful.

Coolmore may have a whole bunch of new, hot young studs, but I think GC knows he's THE MAN.
If the whole horse population was suddenly turned loose on a farm with no fences, Giant's Causeway would be the herd stallion. 8-)

Lane's End posted that same photo of Indy on Facebook, saying he just had a bath.

Giant's Causeway is such a legend. Hopefully he stays sound and happy for many more years.

Da Big Hoss retired to stud in Ohio
Da Big Hoss, a Grade 2 winner and multiple course record holder, has been retired from racing and will enter stud at Poplar Creek Horse Center in Bethel, Ohio, for the 2018 breeding season, where he will stand for a private fee.

The 7-year-old son of Lemon Drop Kid finished his career with 12 wins in 22 starts for earnings of $1,551,696. Excelling at long-distance turf races, his victories include the Grade 2 Elkhorn Stakes, two editions of the Grade 3 Kentucky Turf Cup, the Grade 3 American St. Leger Stakes, the Grade 3 John B. Connally Turf Cup, the Belmont Gold Cup Invitational, and the John’s Call Stakes.

He owns track records for two miles on turf at Belmont Park and 1 1/2 miles on turf at Sam Houston Race Park.

Da Big Hoss is unraced since November 2016. He returned to the work tab in January after a nine-month layoff for three timed workouts at Gulfstream Park before the decision was made to retire him.

“He came up with a little tendon issue,” said Robin Murphy of Poplar Creek Horse Center. “He’s going to be fine, but he’s 7 years old, and having a spot for him to retire, that’s the best thing for him. He’s proven himself.”
