I remember him fondly. What a speedball he was, and exceedingly handsome as well.
Here's a wonderful video of his incredible career as a sprinter. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H7FBayh5TJQ

* "Champion Leroidesanimaux, sire of Kentucky Derby winner Animal Kingdom, will relocate overseas to stand at Lanwades Stud in Newmarket, England beginning in 2014."
This is disappointing. He sired a Kentucky Derby and World Cup winner, but that didn't earn him enough support to avoid being exported? :(

* Regarding Shotiche, he was reportedly the last living son of Northern Dancer still standing at stud.

He's technically #7 on the general sire list here, but if you remove Animal Kingdom's earnings, he drops to around #200. I think that is sort of the problem. He's had some good runners but only one true standout, and it looks like people don't want to gamble too much on him. Maybe his pedigree will be in more demand over there. Looks like a lovely farm. Archipenko is there, and it's where Selkirk stood.

Re: Leroi relocating to England. They obviously recognize his ability as a turf sire and I'm sure he will be appreciated over there.

Leroidesanimaux was at stud somewhere in Florida, wasn't he? Maybe it's just me, but I fail to see how going from Ocala to Newmarket isn't an upgrade for him. It's not like he's going to Easter Island or anything. :) He'll get plenty of good mares where he's going (compared to the caliber he's been breeding to in Ocala).
Soylent green is....tasty!!!

Who is he?
He was the last reported son of Northern Dancer still standing at stud - a G3 winner. Here's the link from The Bloodhorse:

England needs Leroi badly. I dont see how they arent already backed into a corner with inbreeding.

I agree with you, Calypso, that Leroi' will now get a better book of mares in England than he was getting in Florida. I just wish that he had been supported like that here. Tough being a "grass" sire in the States, and I guess even siring a Derby winner didn't change that perception of him.

I'm still shocked and amazed that El Prado ever got enough mares to prove he was worth the shot in Ky. An Irish bred, turf raced son of Sadler's Wells.....

Just imagine what some other stallions may have done given a slightly better chance.

I don't think North Light or Silent Name got enough of a shot in KY. Silent Name did race in the US, though. But he's doing well as a sire in Canada, so perhaps he's where he belongs. And he's not particularly good looking :D North Light, on the other hand, is gorgeous.

I just posted the picture to some friends along with saying that he looks better weight-wise than I've seen in years... Sure wish he was still breeding, especially with the loss of Pulpit...

Reliable Man(GB), G1 winner in both hemispheres, will shuttle from New Zealand to Germany next year.
He is a fine-looking grey horse.
