It sounds like Fujisawa gave up the idea of sending his horses to the Stars & Stripes Day at Belmont this year.
What a shame. :(
Rosa Gigantea has been sent to the farm to take some rest.

Has Six Perfections produced any black foals? And didn't Songster get one mare in foal?

I can't find a 2013 foal for her, so unless she had one this year, she has not. Planet Five might be black but is registered as dark bay. http://www.touchstonefarm.com.au/stallion.php?id=74

I had heard Songster got one mare in foal but I can't find anything. The Bloodhorse article about him being infertile and returning to racing said "None of the approximate 60 mares Songster covered are in foal."

Air sure looks black.

I remember one at Indiana Downs who looked black; didn't catch his name but in direct sunlight was jet black with no brown on muzzle. There were no registered blacks running on the card that day.

Gigli, a former Frankel runner, is black. He is now headed for a division of Old Friends called Cabin Creek. Barbara Livingston posted a picture of him on her FB wall.

There were several black yearlings by Lonhro in the Keeneland September sale. They were all registered as dark bay/brown though.

That's wonderful! I was a fan of Roses In May when he was running and always hoped he'd get a good one at stud.
