Reine Minoru will remain in training.
I don't know about Mikki Queen.
Rouge Buck will be retired by the end of March to be a broodmare. I don't know if she has already run her last race.
Rouge Buck(JPN), 2012M. Manhattan Cafe(JPN) x Ginger Punch(USA), has officially been retired from racing.
It was a big shame that she could not get to a G1 victory, while she credited four graded wins beating the boys each time.
She was such a popular filly.
And we all hope that she will be a G1 producer in her long career as a broodmare.

She always gave her best, a very game filly. Do you know who they will send her to, tachyon?

I was wondering the same thing.

As Rouge Buck is a Northern Farm's mare, she will be bred to one of the Shadai Stallions (unless she is sent to overseas).
King Kamehameha has to be the logical choice.
But she has a lot of options at Shadai ... Lord Kanloa, Harbinger, Maurice, Duramente......

Who do you like???

Wow would that be hard to decide, too many fabulous choices! :lol:

But hmm, yes I would lean toward King Kamehameha, Lord Kanaloa or maybe Heart's Cry? or would that be too inbred to Sunday Silence? Or Harbinger, he's been doing well with his runners too.

I'd put my money on King Kamehameha, given that he's not getting any younger.

But I also wonder who Queens Ring will go to.
