When Stronach decided to stand Shaman Ghost in California, it was quite a coup for California breeding.
Didn't last long.

He is 24, but his offspring are still running well. Wooderson, the half to Rachel Alexandra, won a MSW at Saratoga yeterday, and Bravazo is apparently coming into the Haskell in good form.

How is AA’s health?

Article said Shaman Ghost bred 92 mares. A mid-level amount of mares in this day and age. I didn’t particularly think he was a California sire, even though he won there. I’d still like to see him in Ontario.

His fee is set as private, but he covered 77 mares in 2017, resulting in 52 live foals, so he seems fertile enough. I'd imagine his book is kept pretty small and select, but as long as he is is healthy and continues to have 2 or 3 graded stakes winners from each crop, I hope he continues to cover mares.

It sounded like Stronach was trying to get out of the Kentucky breeding game when he announced that Shaman Ghost would stand in California and Adena Springs Kentucky was for sale.

Either way, I am glad to see Shaman Ghost in Kentucky.

~ the last Gr.I-winning son of A.P. Indy to retire. He's also out of champion Round Pond. Maryland should like him.

A Lot Becomes Second Tapit Son Standing in Australia

https://www.bloodhorse.com/horse-racing ... -australia

~ I guess we can say he's actually the first to stand year-round (since Frosted, the other Tapit, is a shuttler).

He hasn't ever left the US. I don't know who Mylute is thinking of. Maybe Colonel John? I can't think of any other WinStar stallions that went to South Korea in the past few years besides him and Take Charge Indy.

A while back someone made a comment about who would be shipped out to Korea next, and someone else suggested Revolutionary because he wasn't getting big bucks at the sale. I didn't word my comment correctly but what I meant was maybe because of Maiden Beauty's win and the TCI kerfuffle they would think twice if they were thinking about selling him.

Nice to hear about Read the Footnotes!
I still remember vividly his tremendous stretch duel with Second of June in the 2004 Fountain of Youth.
