Except for horses with elite pedigrees and/or racing or producing records, the prices were very low at Keeneland January this year.

I think William Nicks is the same guy who stands Monba at his IN farm.

So glad to see that he is still thriving and covering (small books) of mares at his age. I also had no idea that Distorted Humor was covering 125+ mares at his age :shock: . Guess that's the difference between Adena and WinStar.

Also didn't know AA had two very serious bouts of colic, he really is a fighter. I hope him and Ghostzapper continue to have uneventful happy lives, they are two of my all time favourites.

MIKKI POSITION won Race 9 at Nakayama today and clocked up JRA win number 1800 for his sire DEEP IMPACT.

He becomes only the second horse to reach 1800, his sire SUNDAY SILENCE the other.

#DEEPIMPACT quickest in 8y 6m 24d
#SUNDAYSILENCE took 9y 8m 26d
I wonder how that compares to Europe & the US?

I enjoyed reading it but this part didn't make any sense to me, "There isn’t another stallion who has sired four Breeders’ Cup champions". Then later in the article they act like its some kind of record for a stallion.

He is a great stallion, don't understand the need to say he is the only one when he isn't.

Good for them & good for the horse. : ))))

Will he ever lose his stallion cheeks? Or are those there to stay?
