Sadly retired due to injury.

Assume he will be in great demand. So where and how much?

I'll go 60k a pop....

30k sounds lot more likely than 60k

Impeccably bred and great on the track without being a superstar, could’ve possibly priced a superstar later in the year but who knows. My guess is in line with RR46, I surmise about 20-30k.

Form wise I'd be a doubter esp this year...that was a poor sussex and the Prat was mickey mouse, lots of 3yos this year are desperately trying to be milers and aren't where as he is that and only that.  I'd be concerned that the offspring could well be slow but they've not found a Dubawi replacement so I'm sure will be trying their hardest with him (and will therefore charge an arm and a leg).

They might have found that Dubawi replacement in Night of Thunder. Is TDH is still the property of the Lloyd Webbers? I think the offspring might well have more of the family stamina Yer Ma but it is a tad harsh to suggest they will be slow, depends on the mares he gets. Staying is where they are putting the prize money boosts and if he isn't over-priced he might be a fair choice for many. They started Night of Thunder at 30,000 euros, he was a quality unbeaten two year old, classic winner at three and won a Group 1 at four, Cracksman was a better performer too and he started at £25k, so TDH ought in my view to be around the Harry Angel mark of £20k.

Dream on Formo!
He is sexier, better bred, better looking and has to be more correct than Night Of Thunder.
Also N.O.T starting well paves the way for a big ask for the next Dubawi at Dalham.
His early retirement gets them the ability to play the 'yes perhaps the 3yo's weren't great but what would he have achieved given the full season' card.

How much does size matter in sires? I understand he has not grown from 2yo.

Anyone know how his £3.5m brother is doing?
Report Big Black Cat October 29, 2019 7:33 PM GMT
So £50k for Too Darn Hot.

Also Night of Thunder up to E25K from E15k.
Report gunslinger7 October 29, 2019 8:54 PM GMT
Too darn dear for me. Night of thunder is value for me at €25k, very good start

£50k is overpriced, imo.

You're a tough crowd.

He was an unbeaten Champion juvenile and a dual G1 winner as a 3-y-o, by the second-best sire in the world and out of a three time G1 winner herself. And you want all of that for 20-30K? Dream on.

You are right JM but I think he will be 1/2 that price in 4 or 5 years. It's just the way it seems to be going.
