It's a good question, Starine.
But even the Japanese industry may be approaching a tipping point, as we were reminded when the all-conquering Shadai Farm announced its fees for 2020. The list contained no fewer than 29 stallions but Shadai will have to cope without its major stars Deep Impact and King Kamehameha, both of whom died during 2019.
Also absent from the list is the veteran Kurofune, who ranked among the top ten stallions for an impressive sequence of 12 years.
(translated by tachyon)Kurofune didn't cover any mare this year due to deterioration of liver function. It looks like he is close to retirement.
I'm not Tachyon but Lex Stud does have stallion videos on the JHRA webpage and it appears to be up to date to at least 2019.
A couple more future stallions to keep the Stay Gold line of Sunday Silence alive, along with Gold Ship, Orfevre, Rainbow Line, et al.
Yeah I guess so.hadrianmarcus wrote: ↑Wed Jan 08, 2020 11:37 amA couple more future stallions to keep the Stay Gold line of Sunday Silence alive, along with Gold Ship, Orfevre, Rainbow Line, et al.
Stay Foolish and Etario could still end up as stallions as well.
This is kinda funny indeed And I'm guessing something similar is bound to happens soon with all the nice stallions they are importing. I wouldn't mind Bricks and Mortar or California Chrome being their next Sunday Silence
