Meant to edit that before accidentally hitting enter. Apologies for the butchered grammar.
Hadn't seen this posted here yet, but in Bloodhorse mentioned last week that Lisa Danielle has been retired from broodmare duties. She unfortunately lost her More Than Ready foal. Her final foal is a 2 y/o filly by Afleet Alex named Afleeting Lisa.
An undisclosed share in Slade Power has been sold to Darley. The horse's final European appearance will come in the July Cup on Saturday, with the VRC Sprint during the Melbourne Cup meeting planned at his last race before retiring to Darley's Kildangan Stud in Ireland. He will remain with Eddie Lynam and continue to race in the colours of Sabena Power
New photo for Majestic Warrior is also really nice - http://www.coolmore.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/06/MajesticWarriorConformation2014_web.jpg --- what a hunk
Not the best name I've ever seen, poor guy!
Since Lammtarra was conditioned by Saeed Bin Suroor and trained during the winter in Dubai he was kind of the kick-off for Godolphin, but Sheikh Mohammed owned some nice horses in the 1980s before bringing his family together to found Godolphin in the 1990s
Dancing Brave may have something to say about that. Prince Khalid and Sheikh Mohammed were on the scene with some pretty nice horses in the 1980s
Undefeated Champion Lammtarra has passed away at the age of 22. The Derby/King George/Arc winner stood initially at Sheikh Mohammed's Dalham Stud before being sold to Japan. With limited success as a stallion he was bought back by Sheikh Mohammed in 2006 and returned to Dalham Stud to spend his his final years
A German interview with the trainer and an English interview with the jockey. You can't understand what Markus Klug is saying, but I think his celebrations kind of speak for themselves - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UTddC11EZ6Q
I would say Godolphin buys him before Coolmore does, since purchasing horses in training seems to be more of Sheikh Mohammed's flavour. Hopefully he stays with his current connections though, at least his trainer (if his owner does decide to sell him)
