Lancaster Bomber is moving to South Africa.
No. He is shuttling there for the Southern Hemisphere breeding season.
Arent the importing/exporting and quarantine regulations of horses in South Africa too strict to allow shuttling?

Re: Stallion News

It's nice that Adena sends their pensioners and less successful stallions to Old Friends to live out their days. Touch Gold, Alphabet Soup, now Einstein. They see out their careers of almost all of their stallions, with a handful going to regional markets like Indiana, Washington, California, etc. B...

Re: Sad state of breeding

In what world do Ghostzappers not run long and mature slow....? I kind of get your argument but he's a pretty terrible example. He's kind of the definition of being unpopular at the sales and having late bloomers. His top progeny are Shaman Ghost (broke his maiden March of his 3 y/o year, won Graded...

Godolphin's very talented and incredibly promising multiple group winning stayer Brundtland broke down in his 4 year old debut in the Nad Al Sheba Trophy at Meydan yesterday. This one stings. RIP.

Re: Stallion News

Breeding older proven producers to new sires used to be a thing. I remember hearing a phrase similar to, "Send proven mares to new stallions, and new mares to proven stallions" on here. I mean, I think it kind of used to be considered a good way to get a new stallion off to the right start. And LNJ...

Re: Battle of Midway

And here we almost had a positive story of a subfertile stallion returning to training and regaining his top form. RIP. Condolences to the connections. Has a horse ever successfully done this? I wonder how hormones play into it with bone density and stuff. This game is painful. Al Kazeem comes to m...

Re: Photos/News about Broodmares

Recycled newspaper bedding, interesting. I wonder if that is standard in Japan. Most of the foal photos we get seem to be of mom and baby outside, never in the barn/foaling stall.

3 buzzers found in his home = 4 year ban :shock: Not that I'm complaining, but Australia definitely doesn't mess around when it comes to investigations and bans. I'm kind of surprised that they were able to raid his home. Stables seems like one thing, but I don't think I've ever heard of a racing ju...

Re: White Turf

It's a cool venue, but jockey George Baker had his career ended, and almost died, two years ago after a nasty fall there. Kind of mixed emotions on it since then.

Is European Champion 3yo Sprinter even a category? No sprinter trained in Europe won more than one G1 in 2018... and I believe him and Sands of Mali were the only 3 year olds to win an open G1 sprint. Biiiiiiit of a stretch there in the marketing department. I would say that he was tough as hell bef...
