Now listed as a gelding
Soft Falling Rain has been retired and will stand at stud in South Africa at Wilgerbosdrift Farm.
She was sold to and lives at Northern Farm in Japan, not Darley
Now that Kitten's Joy is holding his own as a sire and is getting fewer and fewer Ramsey mares, I wouldn't be surprised to see the same tactics used on Real Solution. Cross him with the same inexpensive mares that have less than fashionable immediate pedigrees but match up well to Kitten's Joy (or in this case Real Solution) and hope for the best.
Good to hear, I wonder if he will race at all during the remainder of 2014.
After being sold to Martin Schwartz prior to the Prix de Diane, Xcellence has been transferred to the stable of Chad Brown. Given Schwartz's success in importing European fillies and having them win big in America, she could be the next Zagora, Stacelita, or Alterite
He won well and I agree that most of the 'best I've ever had' hype should be taken with a grain of salt from Ballydoyle - especially with Camelot, who IMO was extremely overrated and was part of a very shallow 3 year old crop. But then again, AOB gets some of the nicest colts in the world year after year, so who can really blame him for publicly declaring that they are special, haha.
It has been announced that clients of Australian trainer Chris Waller have purchased a 50% share in Coolmore's Belmont Derby runner-up, Adelaide. Set to run in the Secretariat Stakes this weekend, if all goes well Adelaide's next target would be the Cox Plate at Moonee Valley in October, after which it is very likely that he would remain in Australia.
The Queen's Carlton House has been retired and will stand at Darley's Kelvinside Stud for A$16,500.
Agreed, especially considering that twice she defeated Serena's Song. I met her briefly a few years ago, but I really had no idea who she was since I was only 13 or so unfortunately.
