Well mare trade in December should be buoyant then as he shops for 120 of them to create a book.

Fabulous blethering though JM!

In a world of poor paged stallions, this fits right in.  Honestly, would you have bred Lawman at £15k to that Dam (dead family, unraced, 7yo who'd had one foal by bachelor duke N/S £2k two years before).  That said, any rich people keen to pump in new money v v welcome.

At least he was tailed off in the Guineas rather than the Derby!

As per the interview in the TDN - £5k, limited to 80 mares and he won't be sending any mares himself preferring instead to support him by buying 6/7 of his foals / yearlings.

The idealist in me would appreciate the limit of 80 in most books. The current lower end is unsustainable so at least there's a hope the market for Marcels won't be swamped. (unlike certain 1st seasoners this year yikes).

The more natural cynic in me would see the prudence in the announcement, providing there is a supply of even 80 mares out there for him, which has to be a major doubt.

Cynic/realist Proxy, always an ambiguous call.

Without doubt this horse will be extremely unlikely to reach 80 mares so that allows for them to call him full should that happen.

I am afraid that if something amazing did happen and he attracted a few more than 80, you can rest assured they won't be sticking there, despite prior assurances.
