Claiborne has always set limits on their stallions. I believe Three Chimneys and Lanes End do as well, but it would vary depending on the stallions and their syndicates. Of course some of the others might have limited books, but I find it hard to say a book is limited if the stallion breeds mare than 125 mares.starrydreamer wrote:How many stallions have their books limited? I believe War Front does, which is why he only saw 105 and his son, The Factor, saw 135 (I'm sure stud fees made The Factor a cheaper alternative to his sire as well).
184 for Kitten's Joy... we're going to run out of Kitten names. Then again, considering the success he's been having, it's not surprising. I wonder how many of those mares were not owned by the Ramseys.
75 for Artie Schiller, not sure how this compares to past years. Hopefully We Miss Artie and My Conquestadory drum up more interest in him.
Kitten's Joy: I believe Ramsey said he only sent 30 mares to him this year.
Artie Schiller goes up and down. But even 75 is a decent amount of mares and no doubt the 2 G1SWing 2yos will help him. If they run well in the BC it will only enhance his appeal for next year.
