I agree with you, downsizing he does have 900 horses that is a lot! Yep Frankel stays put, but a few other stallions get sold.

Yes, it is just downsizing - he has many mares of the same bloodlines (example - I think he has 4 daughters from one mare all in his broodmare band, and I think only 1 of those daughters won a race on the track)  so I think it is just time to 'cull' some of the excess mares that aren't producing the quality he is wanting.  I'd say he will sell 1/4-1/3 his stock...  I mean, he could sell 1/2 and still have a huge herd!  LOL

Great points and yes with a huge herd of mares with bloodlines people probably are screaming to get into he can afford to downsize and still be a force at the races.
