South Vigorous(USA), 1996H. End Sweep(USA) x Darkest Star(USA) by Star de Naskra(USA), died of colic on March 4th 2018. :cry:

That's very sad news and a huge loss to the breeders in Japan, as he has been industry's most reliable sire for the dirt racing especially in the sprint races.
In the Japanese sire ranking in 2017, he was 10th overall and 2nd for dirt.
He covered 173 mares in 2017 and had been fully booked for this season.
May he rest in peace.

Sad news about South Vigorous. He was a good-looking stallion and, what's particularly interesting is that he had War Admiral in his 4th generation and, of course, Man o' War in his 5th. It's very rare to see those horses so close up in a pedigree these days. I'm sorry for his loss to the Japanese breeding program, Tachyon. :(

His sire, End Sweep, died too young as well. :(

I suspect Cairo Prince will be hot in the coming years.

Has there even been this much buzz for a freshman stallion who raced 5 times, won 2 G2s, and retired after an injury while prepping for the Kentucky Derby? Whose fee has been almost tripled before his first progeny even hit the track?

That's only partly a rhetorical question, I'd be interested if anyone does recall when a horse with a relatively modest (ie. no G1 wins) track record, decent pedigree (though POTN blew up after Cairo Prince stood his first season), standing for a not really eye watering sum.

I know Danzig, Malibu Moon, etc. barely raced before they were retired to stud, but where people as excited about their first crops as we're seeing with Cairo Prince?

Idk, I've just been following Cairo Prince for a few years now, and it's fascinating how there has been so much hype from everyone involved with him. I'm really excited for his first crop to hit the track.

Great googly moogly has Kizuna ever filled out. :shock: Think he's gunning for best Barbie locks against Orfevre, too... :lol:

Since Danzig and Malibu Moon were freshmen, the industry has changed. I think it’s noteworthy that people are so attracted to him because he’s not getting super early horses, but is expected to have later developers. Or mid-range developers.
Let’s face it - he was very talented and we never really got to see what he was made of. He’s a mystery in that regard.

Kizuna is beautiful, but nobody compares to Orfevre in the looks department, in my opinion.

Give Maurice a year or two to grow out his mane and I think he will blow Kizuna and Orfevre out of the water. :lol:
