It was announced today that Tiggy Wiggy will bypass the Abbeye and will be put away for the year, I personally love this decision and hope she shows the same spark in 2015.
Seville has been retired and will stand at Heritage Stallions in Maryland
I remember seeing her name in passing a few months ago and thinking it was such a great name for a little filly. I have been following her since then, and it terrific to see her get a top class win. They mentioned the Prix l'abbeye as a possible option for her, and I kind of hope that they bypass it. She's had a pretty busy season as it is, and while she doesn't look like a Guineas type, the newly added races for 3 y/o sprinters for next year looks like something that might be up her alley.
I think she will go for between 1.8 and 2.4 million. As far as this weekend I think she may just come up short again
Coral Eclipse winner and consistent G1 performer Mukhadram will retire to Sheikh Hamdan's Shadwell Stud in Norfolk at the conclusion of the 2014 season.
Shirreffs said they were hoping to have him make his debut before the end of the Belmont season
They were bred and raised at Stonestreet and are currently back at the farm now, with the Bloodhorse article saying that they will be bred in the Spring. As of now it sounds like Stonestreet is planning on keeping them. They could be sold eventually privately or when they are in foal though. I will be somewhat surprised if they sell DOJ though, as she is named after Banke's daughter.
Princess of Sylmar was to be expected, Believe You Can was a bit of a surprise, this is honestly shocking. Spendthrift is a big organization and doesn't really seem to need the money the way the Stancos do, and it's not like they already have her relatives the way Airdrie does for BYC. I can't see Mandy Pope buying all of them, although it would be nice if she did!
Hopefully he runs as nice as he looks
Wish I could say I am surprised. My Miss Aurelia seemed to be plagued with issues that kept her from returning to her best. As far as Dreaming of Julia goes, when I heard last year of her being sent back to the farm for a 'vacation' I remember posting that she probably won't race again. It looks like she too had just too many setbacks
