Yeah, I think he's up against it. He may be a Canadian classic winner and duel G1 winner, but the Awesome Again line just isn't precocious and the breed to sell part of the industry has no time for that. Starting in California and covering mares that those that ended up being for sale/rescue for $500 didn't help.

Hopefully he gets some runners in his early crops and can have the consistent success that Ghostzapper and Awesome Again do.
Yeah I forgot about the backyard mares listed on that one auction website. Aren't those the same ones whose foals can't be registered because they were conceived via AI?

Disheartening. Why, Adena, why?
If you want to get specific, you can ask: Frank, why did you stand him in California and Andy, why did you AI breed him to a bunch of, well, donkeys.

You never have to worry about them being sent overseas. They'd go to Washington, Indiana, California, New York, Florida, or Ontario before that... but sometimes the shuffling in the early years I think can do more harm than good. Giacomo is one I remember who stood in at least 3 different spots in the first couple of years at stud. Alphabet Soup, Touch Gold, North Light, and others have also moved around while technically under Adena's banner. But that was later in their careers.

Hopefully his books are better managed now that he is in Kentucky. But honestly, considering he bred less than 100 mares, they probably aren't too stringent.

With so many new stallions retiring to stud each year, breeders have a huge pool to choose a stallion from. Is it any wonder why those stallions that are not the creme de is creme don’t have huge books mares?

Congrats to Overanalyze for getting what I believe to be his first graded winner, a Grade 1 no less, with Hog Creek Hustle.

Kizuna(JPN)(Deep Impact) sired his first winner, when his 2yo filly Luce della Vita(JPN)[o/o Tokai Life(JPN) by Tokai Teio(JPN)] won her debut going 1600m turf at Hanshin R5 Newcomer on June 9th 2019.

I can’t remember- is this because he has not done well? Or, health reasons? Too bad.

He hasn't done well at stud. I think its admirable that his owners chose to pension him over selling him to sire more foals, when his record suggests that isn't a great idea.

Tenaciousness and Tapit
Out of Tapit's 798 winners to date worldwide, 35% (278 runners) won at least one race by a neck or less and 67 have won more than one race by a neck or less. These hard-fought wins included 41 stakes, of which 24 were graded/group stakes. Most of the stakes winners had winning margins of a neck, with 17, followed by 12 stakes winners by a nose, and 10 by a head.

In the 151-year history of the Belmont Stakes, 30 editions were decided by a margin of a head or less. To date, only one sire has been represented by two Belmont winners whose margins of victory were this close—Tapit.

World of Trouble to Stud at Hill N Dale in 2021
The colt owned by Michael Dubb, Madaket Stables, and Bethlehem Stables is undefeated in four starts in 2019, including the Carter Handicap (G1) on dirt and the Jaipur Invitational Stakes (G1T) over the weekend on the Belmont Park turf. He has won seven of his past eight races, all stakes, falling a neck short in the Breeders' Cup Turf Sprint (G1T) as a 3-year-old.

Sakura Orion(JPN)[2002H. by El Condor Pasa(USA)] sired his first graded winner, when his 4yo colt Kaiser Melange(JPN)[o/o Sakura Julep(JPN) by Sakura President(JPN)] won the G3 Hakodate Sprint 1200m turf at Hakodate on June 16th 2019. :D

I hope that Kaiser Melange will become a stallion.
It had been thought that El Condor Pasa's sire-line would inevitably die out, after Vermilion(JPN) retired from stud in 2017 without many success.

He was renamed when racing in Australia to He's Eminent as there was already a horse named Eminent registered in Aus.

Bucchero Camp Plans Royal Return with Next Generation
https://www.bloodhorse.com/horse-racing ... generation
"We were inspired by the whole Ascot experience, so we've got a plan to bring probably a Bucchero yearling over and bring it up through the UK process," he explained. "We'll campaign it here, and try to get to Ascot the old fashioned way.

"We have a website, buccherobaby.com, that has a little countdown to the first babies, and we'll try to feature some of the mares we have when they come, new things that you don't see a lot of other people doing.

I've noticed that the Washington Thoroughbred website or stallion register lists horses that stand in California, or are listed as being in California on BH.

Are they situations where the stud will spend half the season in Cali and the other half in Washington?

Read yesterday that after announcing late last year or early this year that More Than Ready had made his last shuttle trip and was retiring from shutting...... surprise.....he's shuttling to $$Australia again.

I had heard that, too. I believe it's the case, but I don't know with 100% certainty.
