All of Don Alberto's really nice mares --> All of Kentucky's really nice stallions

I am a bit too lazy to point out each and every pairing, because there are a ton of them. But it's a good/informative article. They own a lot of incredible broodmares.

LOL. I was hoping someone would unpack it so they'd show up on a Search here. I agree it's an excellent article! I may have missed some and some may have already been posted. I'm going to cheat a little and do a copy/paste rather than a list.
Fabricio Buffolo, Don Alberto executive director, said the farm plans to send Justify at least six of its best mares, including Graded winner and producer La Cloche, a $2.4m acquisition; homebred Rubilinda, a multiple stakes winner by Frankel; Look At Me, a multiple Group-placed daughter of Danehill Dancer and Henrythenavigator’s full-sister Queen Cleopatra; Reach The Stars, a Galileo half sister to champion Escena, and Marie Madelaine, winner of Chile’s prestigious Group 1 Las Oaks.
Unique Bella ---> Medaglia d'Oro has already been posted.
Another mare tentatively scheduled for Medaglia D’Oro this spring is Baffled, a $3.5m acquisition in partnership with Bridlewood Farm. A half-sister to Grade 1 winner Emcee, Baffled has already produced Grade 1 winner and young WinStar Farm stallion Constitution, a shuttler to Haras Don Alberto in Chile; Group 2 winner Boynton, and Grade 3 winner Jacaranda.
Buffolo said Baffled is currently in foal to Medaglia D’Oro and is believed to be carrying a filly.

Other Don Alberto mares booked to Medaglia D’Oro include Sweet Assassin, a Tapit full-sister to Grade 1 winner Cupid and a $750,000 broodmare prospect purchase who is carrying her first foal to the cover of Candy Ride, and Mi Vida, a stakes-placed Distorted Humor mare who has a three-year-old filly by Medaglia D’Oro named Gold Standard who brought $1.2m from Stonestreet Stables as a juvenile.
Don Alberto plans to send three of its best mares to Tapit this season: Salty, a daughter of Quality Road who was a Grade 1 winner in 2018 and a $3m purchase at the Fasig-Tipton November sale; Ghostzapper’s daughter American Story, a $2.2m purchase in 2017 who is a half-sister to a pair of Grade 1 winners in Reynaldothewizard and Seventh Street and the dam of another, American Gal; and Siren Serenade, a 13-year-old by Unbridled’s Song and a $1.025m acquisition who is a half-sister to Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Turf winner George Vancouver and who is the dam of Grade 1-placed Luminance, a track record setter by Tale Of The Cat acquired by Don Alberto for $1m.
Luminance, who produced her first foal in 2018, a filly by Empire Maker, is currently in foal to Arrogate and will go back to Empire Maker.
Buffolo said Don Alberto, who partnered with Gainesway Farm to bring Empire Maker back to the US from Japan, will send 20 to 22 mares to the son of Unbridled this season, including Argentine Group 1 winner Boca Inc, by Include; stakes winner Ciao Bella, a $1.6m acquisition by Giant’s Causeway, and Ciao Bella’s unraced homebred daughter Camilli, by Tapit.
Juddmonte’s Arrogate, the champion son of Unbridled’s Song who raced to unforgettable wins in the Breeders’ Cup Classic and Dubai World Cup, will be visited by Don Alberto’s Modeling and Sacristy. Don Alberto owns a lifetime breeding right in Arrogate, Buffolo said.
One of the Don Alberto mares who is tentatively set to visit Tourist this year is Angerona, a ten-year-old by Galileo who is a half-sister to Grade 1 winner Toccet.
Angela Renee, a $3m purchase who is a full-sister to Grade 1 winner and sire To Honor And Serve, produced her first foal in 2018, a colt by Empire Maker. She is in foal to Medaglia D’Oro and will visit Quality Road this spring.

Cathryn Sophia, the 2016 Kentucky Oaks winner by Street Boss who was purchased for $2.3m in partnership with Bridlewood Farm, produced her first foal, a Pioneerof The Nile filly in 2018 and is in foal to Medaglia D’Oro for 2019 on a late cover that might prevent her from being bred back in a timely manner.

Constellation, a daughter of Bellamy Road who cost $3.15m at Fasig-Tipton last November, is carrying her first foal to the cover of Curlin. “She is going to Into Mischief – it’s speed to speed,” Buffolo said. “She and Paola Queen, [a daughter of Flatter], are both going to Into Mischief.”

Another winner of Las Oaks in Chile, Roman Ruler’s daughter Romana Ruler produced a Tale Of The Cat colt on southern hemisphere time in 2018 and is booked to Frosted this spring.

Dacita and Wapi are both Chilean champions bred in that nation and sired by Scat Daddy. Also a multiple Grade 1 winner in the US, Dacita is close to producing her first foal to the cover of Uncle Mo, Buffolo said of the $1.85m purchase, adding: “Then she goes to Quality Road, and that horse could suit her very well, providing some size and scope.”
Wapi, a strongly-made and attractive mare, was acquired in partnership with Three Chimneys Farm for $1.05m in 2017 and produced a Curlin colt last year before being bred back to Gun Runner. “She’s a very nice mare. She had a really nice Curlin colt and she will go back to Curlin this year because we were very happy with her first foal.

Wonder if they'll go with one of their own stallions this year.

And not that True Nicks is everything, but Beholder nicks an A with Pharoah.

You're so good. Thanks for listing these out. These two, in particular Bending Strings, are most interesting to me. I would love to meet that mare. Her babies seem all over the place. So unfortunate that the most promising Stradivari suffered a career/life ending injury as a 3 year old. I followed along with another of her kids as a partnership of a friend of mine owned him for awhile, a most unusual horse in many ways. Hope this match works for her.

I couldn't get that link to work but already had opened the article to read later.

Sumthingtotalkabt dam of the brilliantly fast turf filly Lady Shipman, an 11-time stakes winner and multiple course record setter. Will visit the red hot stallion VIOLENCE at @HillnDaleFarm in 2019. VIOLENCE is making all the right noises and producing very commercial stock. #SF

TRUE STYLE. A Half sister to the Sire of triple crown winner JUSTIFY, the late *Scat Daddy will visit the sire of the other triple crown winner American Pharoah, the @WinStarFarm centerpiece PIONEER OF THE NILE. True Style produced a 2yo stakes winner in 2018 Classic Fit.. #SF

Awesome Again mare STARSTREAM will visit @KentuckyDerby winner ALWAYS DREAMING at @WinStarFarm in 2019. Her claim to fame is producing tough guy TOMMY MACHO. He’s won just shy of $1m from 6-1/2 to 9F. She’s currently in foal to @DarleyStallions Frosted. #SF

MIMINIGASH named after mother-in-laws home town on P.E.I 🇨🇦 will visit @KentuckyDerby winner ALWAYS DREAMING. MIMINIGASH is a half sister to eclipse champion, @BreedersCup sprint winner Judy The Beauty. My Mother-in-law Heather should also get an award for putting up with me. #SF

Two year old stakes winner LAUDATION will visit @BreedersCup classic winner ACCELERATE in 2019. She’s a half sister to the talented 2yo Astoria stakes winner Moment Is Right. Precious famously. #SF

G2 winner DISTINTA currently in foal to Mastery will visit MEDAGLIA D’ORO in 2019 #SF

Gone Purrfect. A full sister to SPEIGHTSTOWN who has already produced a graded stakes winner by TAPIT in Golden Hawk will TAPIT again in 2019. #SF

Shocker, eh?
Brilliant turf mare, who they could have sent to Galileo, in the twilight of his stud career.
Nope, let's breed her to resident dirt sire!

Yeah, that one got a :roll: from me, too. Aside from gambling whether that dirt/grass match -up works, I also think those two do not match well in conformation.

Curlin can get a good grass horse, I wouldn't write off or poo-poo the idea just yet. I'm surprised that anyone expected anything different, especially the first year lol.

I don't have a problem with Curlin and Lady Aurelia. Curlin got the nice turf runners Diversy Harbor and Moulin De Mougin. Smart Strike sons with Scat Daddy mares have produced 27% stakes winners so far.
