When that first hit my inbox, my only reaction was, "EW." That was followed by, "Why?" and then, "ew," again.

I will second that 'Why?' and follow with 'what were they thinking?' :shock: :?
Tepin was one of best turf mares we have seen in recent years, but....they chose to breed her to a big, hulking dirt stallion?
I do not get it. :(

I had the same reaction as well. Wish they would have saved her for Frankel or Galileo. I hope Tepin isn't crooked because Curlin throws some crooked foals.

I fourth all of the "Wtf-ing" I'm guessing they're breeding to sell.
I suppose since she was retired on short notice Frankel or Galileo might not have worked out for this year regardless, but why not Hat Trick? He's sired blacktype winners around the world on turf, he's right there in Kentucky. I understand wanting to avoid an unproven sire like Flintshire or Tourist.
But even as far as dirt studs go there would have been far more interesting choices of stallions in the same or similar (or even less!) price range that would have been better physical and pedigree matches.
Ah well, they better hope for some straight legs if they're breeding to sell.

I don't think she would've had any trouble getting to MDO or Kitten's Joy, even that late, and they're both G1 turf sires. Sadler's Wells over Storm Cat has done well. Case-in-point being Giant's Causeway's sister You'resothrilling + Galileo.

And, as someone else pointed out, HnD has been known to purchase high-profile mares at auction that they board/consign. Since the current owner at least claims he hasn't decided what he's going to do with her long-term, it can't hurt. But I think a War Front or Tapit cover would've been more popular overall, with most potential buyers.

MDO maybe not, doesn't he tend to have a full book? Kitten's Joy though, hadn't thought of him but yeah could've worked well too.
I'm sure an MDO filly out of Tepin could have lit up the board at auction.

They will make room for a Tepin type of mare, trust me.
