Also... Medaglia d'Oro is a droolworthy cross.

I don't know what Fipke will name the resulting foal. He has sent Lemons Forever and Unbridled Forever to MDO the past few years.

Change of plans RE: Stellar Wind, it's Galileo and she's in Ireland now. Watch this turn out to be Rags to Riches 2.0

. Will you please explain the Rags to Riches 2.0 reference? I am trying to learn more about the industry. Thank you!

I'm really disappointed. I was pretty damn excited about an American Pharoah x Stellar Wind mating. Why not just breed her to him first and then try Ireland later? Did Rags to Riches ever go to someone besides Galileo?

@Ziggypop
When Rags to Riches retired as a broodmare, they sent her to Giant's Causeway once though the filly she produced was never raced. Then they bred her once to Henrythenavigator (before they carted him off to Siberia), that foal raced once didn't hit the board and then ???. Afterwards they sent her to Ireland and bred her to Galileo. Over and over again. Unsurprisingly this cross has not produced some genuinely successful offspring on the turf, except for Rhett Butler who found success running in... Hungary and Serbia (he is a multiple stakes winner there). She has one other son running, Rich and Righteous in Dubai who has one win from 18 starts on the dirt.

People everywhere lament and puzzle the decision of Coolmore to send such a successful dirt mare with a deep dirt pedigree over and over again to Galileo, king of the world yes, but who hasn't produced any noteworthy dirt horses (and I wonder how many other winners on the dirt besides Rich and Righteous he has produced at all), when it would seem logical to try her with some top Dirt or Dual Surface stallions a few times before trying again with top Turf stallions.

Treve,
Was Rags to Riches bred to him again this year or did they finally send her to a different stallion?

I had completely forgotten but Rags to Riches went to Tapit in 2017 for a 2018 foal! Hopefully that will be a good one :lol: Not sure when her due date is, and I am not sure if she had a foal last year. I'm trying to find that info!
Her Giant's Causeway daughter, Opulence had an American Pharoah foal last year.

Edit: Rags had an Uncle Mo last year... so it seems Coolmore finally came to their senses with regards to her ;)

Makes me wonder how Royal Delta's filly by Galileo is doing. She's a yearling now.

Hope she is doing well :(
By the way, Rags to Riches' blue dam, Better Than Honour went to Curlin last year. She's 22 this year, I wonder if this will be her last foal.
