Free Drop Billy to Spendthrift at End of Racing Career
Kentucky Derby contender Free Drop Billy (Union Rags–Trensa, by Giant’s Causeway), winner of last year’s GI Claiborne Breeders’ Futurity, will stand at Spendthrift Farm at the end of his racing career, the nursery announced Monday. The sophomore is owned by Albaugh Family Stables, which also campaigned Brody’s Cause (Giant’s Causeway), who now stands at Spendthrift.

“We are delighted to be working with the Albaugh family again to stand Free Drop Billy,” said Ned Toffey, General Manager at Spendthrift Farm. “He’s a great-looking horse who’s proven to be talented, precocious and consistent and he’s from a proven sire’s family. He’s a very complete stallion prospect, and he’ll make a great addition to our roster.”

Interesting.
Taylor Made Farm Purchases Famous New Zealand Standardbred
Taylor Made Farm, already established as a top breeding and sales operation for Thoroughbreds, has reportedly purchased one of New Zealand's best harness horses.
Harnesslink reports Taylor Made Stallions is the buyer on what is estimated at a $4 million deal for Lazarus, who has earned $3.8 million in the country. The report states Lazarus will be aimed at a “possible four-race mini career” in the States, which could include a run at Lexington's Red Mile track to improve his credibility as a dual hemisphere prospect.

Looks like he's not just shuttling but WinStar sold him.

Australia may be the perfect fit for Artie. IIRC, his offspring have done well there.
He seems to be an El Prado son who doesn't sire winners on both grass and dirt, so taking his act on the road to an all-turf, all-the-time country seems smart.
And it's not South Korea. Yay for that. ;) :P

Barney Roy, standing at Darley UK, has proved to be subfertile. Once he is healed from the injury that forced his retirement last year, he could return to training.

That's a bummer. I'm confident they'll make the right decision for him. Darley has a wonderful after-care program and often tweet updates about their retirees.

Will Take Charge Gets First Winner in Tijori
https://www.bloodhorse.com/horse-racing ... -in-tijori

I liked him as a runner and I think he could be an even better stallion than he was a racehorse. I'm excited about his offspring; I heard a lot of good things about them at the sales last year.

From Facebook. They misspelled his name. It's Cosmonaut, who I think was pensioned from stud duty in 2016. What a beauty!

Old Friends at Cabin Creek
4 hrs ·
Multiple graded stakes winner and millionaire Cosomonaut was pensioned to Old Friends at Cabin Creek Farm today. He was trained by Phil Serpe and raced by Flying Zee stable. Many of the volunteers were there to greet him mints in hand.

Read Steve Haskins story about him

Six Pack Gal First Winner for Boisterous
https://www.bloodhorse.com/horse-racing ... boisterous

I'm tickled that Boisterous, who did his best running on turf going long and as an older horse, has an early juvenile winner sprinting on the main track.
