Nice site. I've been noticing the runners sired by Fort Prado, who is the spitting image of his handsome sire. His offspring do well in that Midwest area.

I board horses at Oakhurst and they take amazing care of their animals. I think Grindstone is considered a member of their family and he looks fabulous for his age. He has been an amazing regional sire for Oregon-breds and am happy to own a daughter who is currently in foal to Giacomo (who also looks fabulous). If you are ever in Portland, OR, you should make an appointment to visit them - the farm is very friendly.

Looks like Hootenanny will be standing at Buck Pond for a fee yet to be determined.

Per Diamond B Farm owner Glenn Brock, they could not get him to breed mares. He was checked by specialists but never showed interest. Has been retired to a friend's farm but I don't have any other info regarding a potential 2nd (not stud) career.

@BH_CNovak random, but do you have any info on Pants on Fire (the stallion, not the 3yo IRE filly). Retired, no covers... just gone?

That's too bad; I thought he was a handsome horse, with a long career, whose A.P. Indy blood would be very good for a regional market.
I wonder if he has the temperament to find success in a 2nd job, while still staying intact. Just in case someone comes along with a cure for his 'never showed interest' issue? ;)

He has 2 exports on file with the Jockey Club and only one return, doesn't that mean he is in another country?

I did some searching before I posted that but this is what I found(this was on Wikipedia, so idk but anyway it seems very strange):
"Pants On Fire did not breed any mares his first season, as he showed no interest in breeding. He was sent to Dubai for some time off, and will return when he begins to show interest in mares."

Dubai seems like an expensive and far away place to send a horse 'for time off'. That Wikipedia bit (taken with a huge grain of salt) sounds like the horse is there for some punishment/conversion therapy :roll:

Trojan Nation going to Wyoming makes sense. Perhaps they will turn him out with a herd of mixed mares. QH, Sport Horse, etc and let nature take it's course. If he breeds find, it not fine. Maybe he's just shy :oops:

He's got 2 exports, one return- He did run in Japan- so im assuming that is the first export and return.
Perhaps they can straighten him out- there was some success with War Emblem in Japan- not sure about Dubai

Looks like Henny Hughes went to the right place. Glad his stud career has found new life.

Henny has such a lovely head with fine small ears and a soft eye.
