Grade 1 winner Mubtaahij has been retired and is at Hill 'n' Dale in Kentucky. He won't stand there, but he'll head to stud in South America, according to bloodstock agent Donato Lanni.
Shame. We could use a son of Dubawi in the US.

I agree. I added the article to that post because it leaves the door open a bit.
"He's going to stand in Argentina, but we don't know where yet," Lanni said of the 7-year-old son of Dubawi. "We'd love to stand him here, but we'll start there and see what happens. I believe in the horse, but unfortunately I don't have 100 mares to breed to him. He's bred for turf, but he's made like a classic dirt horse."

They'll stand Army Mule but not a solid son of Dubawi.

Ok.

Battle of Midway Represented by First Foal
"The birth went smoothly and both baby and mare are doing well. It was a family affair, with Battle of Midway's full sister Rigged Smart observing the arrival of her niece from across the hallway," said Collier Mathes, the owner/operator of Chesapeake.

Grade 1 winner Keen Ice had a filly out of the Pioneerof the Nile mare Hidden Nile at Calumet Farm. The filly hails from the family of G2 winner Top Secret and G1-placed Kentucky Bear.

Highfield Investment Group delivered the first foal by War Correspondent, out of the stakes-placed Pulpit mare B R's Girl. The mare is also the dam of stakes-placed Act, by War Front, and the family includes G1-placed Colorful Charades.

Rounding out the group, Mr. Z's first foal arrived earlier this week, out of the unraced Point Given mare Point of Fact. Champions Storm Bird and Northernette are in the extended family, as well as G1 winner Storm Trooper.

Nice to see that AP is still as sweet as ever. A rarity in a breeding stallion, most are either hot or just kind of nasty because of the testosterone

War Front, Tapit, Medaglia d'Oro still commanding top stud fees
On Monday, Claiborne Farm opens the doors to its historic breeding shed, where six Triple Crown winners, among dozens of other classic winners, have been conceived. War Front will walk into that breeding shed as the most expensive stallion in North America for this breeding season.

War Front enters 2019 with an unchanged stud fee of $250,000, which leaves him atop the market as two commercial rivals had their fees dropped for the season. Tapit, who stood for $300,000 at Gainesway from 2015-18, will stand for $225,000. Darley resident Medaglia d’Oro’s fee dropped from $250,000 in 2018 to $200,000. Those three will lead the 10 stallions standing for six figures in North America in 2019, up from eight at that threshold five seasons ago, none for more than $150,000.

Claiborne historically has been relatively selective with its stallions’ books, keeping them to modest sizes by today’s standards and not shuttling for the Southern Hemisphere season. War Front covered 82 mares in 2018, according to The Jockey Club’s Report of Mares Bred. The average book size for a Claiborne stallion was 81 mares, and only five of the farm’s 12 stallions covered triple-digit books.

Lani (JPN) made himself heard before he was seen but other than one bit of acting up he was pretty tame! That happens when you get your dream job I guess!!

I saw a pick of Nodouble(USA) today on twitter.

I knew that he was the sire of Mairzy Doates(USA), the winner of the inaugural runnning of the Japan Cup in 1981.
She is one of my all-time favorites.
But this is the first time I come acorss a pick of her sire Nodouble.

Can someone tell me a bit more about Nodouble?

No, he still does hands-on meet 'n' greets, at least as of last May. :)
