I don't really get it. He didn't even win a stakes race. I realize *PEDIGREE!!!* and all, but still. They've got stallions there who actually could run. And more power to them, breeding Dynaformer mares to Big Blue Kitten. Are they trying to build the perfect steeplechaser?

100% agree. Is he much to look at? I don't get it at all, but it's their money and mares.

English Channel was a damned fine racehorse and I wish he'd get more/better. I wonder how he'd do in Europe.

As for BBK/Dynaformer, they desperately want the Melbourne Cup winner? :lol:

I haven't seen Raison d'Etat since he was running. He looked like the typical big-bodied A.P. Indy to me. I don't know how much corrective surgery Juddmonte does on their homebreds, but it would be interesting to know whether he had any procedures.

He's an attractive horse, but I'm guessing that Calumet is putting great faith in his pedigree shining through.
Since he entered stud in 2014, that means we should be getting to see his two-year-olds this year.

His first crop was only 19 horses, but he did have 36 foals last year. Looks like he's had 3 starters and no placings so far.

Be My Kitten (full to Stephanie's Kitten) --> We Miss Artie

I love El Prado's bloodline, but that's a lot, both top and bottom. And WME may be the least attractive El Prado-line horse I've seen. :(
They couldn't find a better stallion for a full to Stephanie's Kitten? :?

I'm sure the common ownership was the primary factor. We Miss Artie's conformation pic is terrible. I've seen him at the track a few times and he's definitely not bad looking. His pasterns are too long and I'm not crazy about his neck. Other than that, I wouldn't knock him too much. I think the El Prado inbreeding on the resulting foal is a bit much.

I really like that Arienza and Arravale went to American Pharoah. Also interesting that a Johar daughter, Keertana, went to him.

Also like that Elloluv went to Animal Kingdom. Did AK get any other big name mares this year?

(Thanks for posting these.)

Absolutely no clue. There hasn't been an announcement on her status. Maybe they decided to have her bred while she was in KY and she ran so abysmally. Or maybe they decided to run her in KY (after previously announcing that she'd make her 2017 debut in a small stake at Santa Anita) because they wanted to breed her.
