Meghan's Joy is a personal favorite. Love that she is going to a Kris S-lined stallion.

Call Pat --> Runhappy
Divine Escapade (o/o Madcap Escapade) --> Runhappy


While I'm sure there are more, these are the first mares I've seen that were bred to Runhappy. I was wondering how well the sprinter was being received by breeders. Ads for him are ubiquitous...even relentless...on TVG and other racing programming, so it doesn't seem like Claiborne is trusting that he's going to sell himself.
And comparing him to Secretariat and the other high-class stallions who occupied Stall 1 in years past doesn't make him equal to them. :roll:

I don't think it's about comparing him in terms of accomplishments on the track or in the shed, or claiming he is equal to them, but rather meant as a statement of how highly they think of him (presumably as a potential stallion).

So how many stallions have called Stall 1 home? Was there another horse after Eddington? Did I miss anyone? I had to look up Eddington, I couldn't remember his name, just that a Unbridled son was in the stall.

Mariasmon posted that Database had been bred to Ironicus. I also forgot to mention two other Janney mares who were bred on the farm this season.

I don't think this is the first incidence I've heard of a Danzig son not having tons of lively swimmers.
The great Lure suffered from such poor fertility that Claiborne took an insurance payout on him. Coolmore then bought him from the insurance company and tried to improve his fertility. While he did manage to sire 119 foals, he was pensioned in 2003 at only 14 and was returned to Claiborne to live out his days.

Happily, Hard Spun seems to be doing just fine.
