I try to follow news about Chrome very closely. He has been doing great in the shed and getting his mares in foal. I think his first book is about 140-160. Somewhere there was a partial list of some of the mares bred to him, but I don't know where to find it again. Some very nice mares in his first book. He will shuttle to Chile ( :( ) sometime in June after our breeding season is over.

Taylor Made bought three mares outright to breed to the stallions standing at their farm, and they have invited the public to participate in selecting one of the mares to breed to Chrome. Here's an Apr. 28 article about it: http://www.thoroughbreddailynews.com/taylor-made-invites-public-to-participate-in-chromes-breeding-career/#.WQc-X9a9UNw.twitter

He's happy, healthy, getting tons of visitors (and cookies), and has been well-received by breeders. Can't ask for more than that at this stage of his stud career.

She was such a lovely filly, I hadn't heard that she had been recently retired. She is in my top 5 of "Most fun horse names to say out loud" :D Alongside Al Mamun Monlau and Ela Mana Mou

I'm guessing the decision was made before they knew how good Always Dreaming was going to be. Still, she was already the dam of a G1W. Unfortunately, she didn't produce a foal from her 2016 mating to Honor Code :(

I believe her owner picked out Nyquist as a yearling or something like that, so perhaps that is the reason for her being sent to him this year.

Yeah, the article did mention that. Good point!
