Apparently there has been insufficient demand for Toormore from breeders - he will not stand for the 2017 season. It's unknown if he'll go back into racing or will just be gelded and retrained for the Godolphin Thoroughbred Rehoming Programme.
Will be standing at Gestüt Ammerland starting this year. His fee is set at €5,000.
Has been retired and will stand at Haras du Hoguenot in France for 2017 with a fee of €3,000.
Has been retired and is set for a date with Intello!
Has been retired and will stand at Haras la Numancia in Argentina for 2018.
Well, I wouldn't quite go that far. Almanzor basically beat all of Europe's finest (sprinters aside, that is) in 2016. While not a terrible field, this isn't quite the same thing. However, it's a good start to the year for Zarak, let's hope they'll manage to keep the momentum going.
That said, there has been no word yet on where Almanzor will show up again. The European turf racing season hasn't yet started, and so there haven't been any solid pointers as to where Almanzor will first appear. I have heard mention that he might not start in the first half of the year, but I have no idea if there's any truth to that.
I hope this is a sign of good things to come this year for Zarak! You know how I feel about Zarak, though. I'm so glad to see him get a win. :)
I assumed that's being done at Bridlewood Farm's training facilities. She might still be in pre-training maybe. There hasn't been anything recorded for her as of yet that I know of.
She's listed as a dark bay or brown filly bred in KY by Clearsky Farms. She was bought by Bridlewood Farm at the 2016 Keeneland September yearling sale. Here's an entry in their Facebook with a photo: https://www.facebook.com/142952359084408/photos/a.1171578289555138.1073741828.142952359084408/1171576366221997/?type=3&theater
