So the juvy turf winners are sired by a mix of freshman and veteran Kentucky sires and the juvy dirt winners are sired by sires who once stood in Kentucky but were shipped out to regional markets.

Just wanted to throw out there I hope Tap Back continues to improve and maybe takes the Chrome route to racing glory and a spot in the breeding shed because, being a colt by Einstein, he may be the last gasp of a hope for the Buckpasser sire line.

Nope. Capella Sansevero was first, and he has a G2 winner in his first crop (Pierre Lapin). Next is Tasleet, who began this year.

I'm interested in seeing how breeders react to Yoshida.

#3 on the first year crop sire list, a BC winner, two other stakes placed horses... I think he deserves it.

I always did want to see him run on the turf.

While he is an interesting stallion, I think they were a bit ambitious on the stud fee.

They have to get as much $$$ as they can before they sell him to the JBBA in three years.

As a son of Heart's Cry, I'm really keen to see what sort of mares he will be sent.

According to the Stallion Register, Medal Count ended up at Mapleton Thoroughbred Farm in Ohio for a private fee in 2020.

D'Wildcat is getting up there in years but he has quite a respectable sire record so that seems exceptionally low. Does he have known fertility issues?

All the stallions except Mean Season had exceptionally low mares bred to live foals born for the 2018 breeding/2019 foaling season. None covered many mares this year either. But that doesn't necessarily mean they have bad fertility.

Does anybody know what farms the stallions will end up going to?
