What would cause a horse not to pass quarantine- picked up some type of bug?

I guess the novelty of having a Giant's Causeway worth off. Only 31 mares this year?

Pretty sure he had some sort of virus when he arrived for quarantine, but I can't remember what it was.

They are trying to limit him as much as they can since he's getting up there in age and he's also a very slow breeder. The farm I work at tried to breed a mare to him and they suggested sending her to Pharoah instead,

Wow Effinex got a lot of mares. At least he'll have a good number of runners to carry on his legacy.

Corinthian only bred 9, no wonder they're sending him to Turkey next year.

I went on a tour at Ashford in August and they mentioned that they have been cutting his book back because of his age and his physical condition. It was the off season but his hind legs were wrapped, so probably just some wear and tear. I mean, for numerous years he covered 200+ mares.

DRF article:

Number of Mares Bred Declines; Into Mischief Top-Covering Stallion
For the third consecutive year, and for the 11th time in 12 years, the number of reported mares bred (RMB) in North America has declined, according to year-to-date statistics through Oct. 17 released by The Jockey Club Wednesday.

The 31,863 covers reported thus far in 2017 represent a drop of 5.6% from the 33,746 RMBs received through the same calendar date last year.

For a broader historical perspective, using statistics contained in The Jockey Club’s online fact book, the number of mares bred is now nearly half of what the year-end report was for 1991 (the oldest date for which The Jockey Club has published online statistics), when 63,479 mares were bred.

The number of active stallions on the continent continues to fall, having dropped in every single year since at least 1991, according to the online fact book.

To date for 2017, 1,342 stallions have been reported active, versus 1,423 reported at this time in 2016 (-5.7%).

In 1991, The Jockey Club reported 6,696 active stallions, nearly five times the current number.

The number of North American stallions covering 100 or more mares has also continued to decrease (105 in 2015; 100 in 2016; 91 in 2017).

Thanks for posting this news. The statistics are so interesting. Through October 17, 2017, The Jockey Club reports that 1,342 stallions covered 31,863 mares in North America during 2017. In round numbers, 5% of stallions had a book size of greater than 125 mares, and that group of stallions covered 30% of mares bred. Put it another way, 95% of all active Thoroughbred stallions in North America attracted only 60% of available mares.

Makes me ponder the mysteries of the unknown and unknowable what ifs.
