Re: Matings 2019

I’m not sure that Maybe got in foal to Deep Impact as she was sent to France in June, I suspect for a late cover by Siyouni.

I wonder what Coolmore are doing with their shares/breeding rights in War Front.

Re: Matings 2019

They’ve really gone off War Front, perhaps partly because several mares failed to get in foal to him last year. From a high of 30-35 Coolmore-associated mares going to War Front a couple of years ago, only half a dozen went to him this year, including only 2 lesser-light Galileo mares. Contrast that...

Re: Matings 2019

Rhododendron and Hydrangea are also in foal to Deep Impact. They, together with Minding, have returned to Ireland. Winter and Happily have headed to the US. Peeping Fawn is in foal to Daiwa Major, and has also returned to Ireland.

Re: Jockey club exploring 140 mare cap per stallion

I imagine Coolmore will come up with a new model, they were largely responsible for the introduction of shuttling after all. The NH breeding season for their top US stallions could be split between the US and Europe (where they can continue to cover as many mares as they want). They could bring at l...

Re: Sadler's Well

When Danehill passed away, they could still bury the full body at that time, and he was buried standing up facing the rising sun, following an old mediaeval tradition.

Re: Sadler's Well

Horses can’t be buried in Ireland and other European countries because of an EU environmental law. However, there is an equine crematorium, I’m sure that Coolmore make use of that. As an example, I’ve seen Danehill Dancer’s burial spot in Coolmore (he died in 2017), and his ashes have been buried th...

Re: Matings 2019

Galileo has 151 yearlings from 178 mares covered in 2017, that’s a return of 85%.
He has 125 foals (registered so far) from 162 mares covered in 2018, that’s a return to date of 77%. There will be a few stragglers to be registered, as per usual, so he will surely exceed 80%.

Re: Matings 2018

I assume this is just a subset of mares sent to Galileo, otherwise it would be a reduced book for him? The proportion of Coolmore-associated mares is quite low in the list, has been about 80% in very recent years. May I ask is there some online source for this information, I would be interested to h...

Re: Siblings (and offspring) of well-known horses

He was never put in the race, carrying a lot of condition. He was just out for a canter today, Aidan said as much just before the race.

Re: Siblings (and offspring) of well-known horses

A promising run, and not necessarily a win, is what is expected of De Coronado today. Aidan likes to bring them along gently and he doesn't mind his horses being beaten first time out, he has already said that 'he will come on a ton' for his first run.
