Five stakes winners—including two Grade Is and a Grade II—in a day and a half for Quality Road. . . He’s pretty good.

Given Quality Road's stud fee was 25 000$ in 2014 then 35 000$ from 2015-2017, those people got a pretty good bang for their buck I'd say.

Kingman(GB), 2011H. Invincible Spirit(IRE) x Zenda(GB), sired his first winner when his 2yo colt Calyx(GB)[o/o Helleborine(GB) by Observatory(USA)] won on debut impressively going 6F turf at AFT Fluorotec EBF Novice Stakes at Newmarket's July course on June 9th 2018. :D

The Juddmonte homebred unleashed a closing burst to earn ''TDN Rising Star'' status in emphatic style. :D :D
The son of Invincible Spirit(IRE) and Poule d'Essai des Pouliches winner Zenda(GB) is set to be represented by 113 two-year-olds in 2018.

Kingman was always my favorite horse.
And I hope that he will sire many champions!!

The videos of Forty Niner are so heartwarming. He looks amazing for his age, and looks content.

I wish more farms would exercise their stallions under tack like they are doing with Creator.

Wow - are we sure they aren't secretly prepping Creator for a second career as a dressage stallion? :lol: He has a lovely trot.

I know Shadai uses the walking machine to exercise their stallions, I don't think many farms in Japan exercise them under tack. Interesting!

Nice to see them riding their stallions at JBBA! I think Shadai lunges their stallions as well.

We're still using him, even at $70,000. This streak of success is only the beginning, imo, as he's continuing to get better and better mares.

I've found it easier to tear up tickets at 8/1 instead of 8/5.

HB is a breeder and owns several mares. He has posted a few photos of some of the foals he's produced before.
But yes, I agree he is well worth his stud fee even at 70k.

Me and him. Him and me. Us. All the same be 'we'.

More than a handful of people on this site (or formerly on this site) know who I am. Who 'we' are. I just choose it not be widely disseminated across the internet, but would welcome you to meet up at Belmont or Saratoga if you're in the area anytime this summer. PM me.

I thought he was going to be a flop.

Wrong again!
