Bullet Train's first foal has dropped, and it's a filly out of Viscountess, by Green Desert! I can't wait to see how this first crop (all of them still unborn but one) by Frankel's big brother fares on the track. At least, unlike most American stallions, his get won't have trouble appealing to international buyers. Here's a pic of the foal via @BulletTrainStud on twitter: https://twitter.com/BulletTrainStud/status/433607806235590656/photo/1
  • zXSwordXz · Hi AOG, Haven't heard that word "dropped" in a very very long time. It brought back lots of childhood memories. I'm looking for to Bullet Train offspring too. My believe is that if he was to breed to broodmare with stamina, it could be an awesome mix. · 316 days ago

Now at Crestwood Farm, I hope he gets some quality mares...seems a bargain at $7500.

  • Sullivan · How long before Calumet sneaks him home? · 428 days ago
  • Northport · He covered 67 mares in 2013. I hope he stays put, if Calumet gets him he will be double the price and getting half the book sizes · 428 days ago

I hope US breeders show him some love...Frankel's bro at a quarter of his price I suspect...
  • northport · I think he will be well supported... with Frankel standing at roughly $200,000 USD and this guy standing at $7,500 USD (and being a G3 winner himself) I think that is a pretty good value · 693 days ago
Bullet Train update! BloodHorse.com is reporting this morning that Bullet Train will enter stud at Wintergreen Stallion station in Midway, KY, for a stud fee of $7,500. His book will be managed by noted bloodstock agent Bob Feld, who said "With his excellent speed, athleticism and outstanding pedigree, Bullet Train really suits American racing and should be well-received by breeders from coast to coast." Technically, Bullet Train is a "3/4 brother" to Frankel; not only do they have the same dam, Kind (by Danehill, who has produced 3 Group stakes winners from 3 foals), but Bullet Train's sire, the great Sadler's Wells, is also the sire of Frankel's sire, Galileo. Bullet Train's dam is also half-sister to Powerscourt, winner of the Arlington Million (g1), and who is also a son of Sadler's Wells.
BloodHorse.com is reporting that Frankel's half-brother Bullet Train, a Group 3 winner of England's Derby Trial stakes in his own right, will stand at stud in Kentucky in 2013!

  • Peppermint Paddy · Its the least they can do, since exporting good ones out ie Sunday Silence, Empire Maker, and now I'll Have Another and Rock Hard Ten · 763 days ago
  • LAZMANNICK · I hope that this isn't a case where we bring him over and he turns into a decent sire and then is sold to the Japanese. · 763 days ago
Poor boy, if Frankel is really so amazing why does he require this horse to make his pace every race.

  • zxswordxz · Because he is a closer and it suite him best if the pace is not too slow. Nothing wrong with that technique, surprise a lot more trainers are not using it. · 794 days ago
  • shores · Best brother of all time. The horse should win an award for that. I liked the pat on the head Queally gave him after the race. He did his job, and he was good at it. I hope he has as good of a retirement as his brother does. He too deserves it. · 794 days ago
Mission Accomplished. Now, what is his own future?
