Considering the less than stellar roster that Three Chimneys currently has (Dynaformer gone, Flower Alley sold, their highest priced stallions are Exchange Rate and Sky Mesa @ 20k), and the new partnership with the Borges Torrealba and Benjamin Leon, it is nice to see them investing in high class colts. I was expecting to see Palace Malice going to Lane's End, but they must be satisfied with the amount of Smart Strike descendants that they already have.
The great Black Caviar will next be bred to Sebring
If Chrome doesn't bounce back from his Penn Derby 6th place and Shared Belief wins the Awesome Again and Classic, SB will absolutely take 3 y/o honours.

Duel G1 winning miler Toronado, who has been a flagbearer for his owner Sheikh Joaan's Al Shaqab Racing, will take up stallion duties at the National Stud in Newmarket next year.

Duel G1 winning mare Samaready has been retired after a disappointing 9th in Saturday's Sportingbet Sprint. She will be bred to All Too Hard.
Being by Majestic Warrior I wouldn't count out Coolmore, although they aren't terribly active when it comes to buying broodmares at sales.
If 2013 is any indicator, the result in the Distaff is everything for the 3 year old filly division. As jockey2be stated, whoever has the higher finish in the Distaff will get the honours (assuming that Maria wins the Beldame).
Hotwalked this one a bit over the Summer and he finally broke his maiden! Was always a bit cheeky but very sweet, always tried hard every time out - so thrilled that he finally won!
