That’s too bad, just when he’s really getting good!

The colorful Southern Phantom( Bodemeisyer) has been retired. I’m glad as he was never in the money. Although they’re looking at stud plans, it seems as though he may be used as a sport horse as they’ve found that he will most likely pass on his coloring/coat?

 Good to know he had a soft landing: His unique looks certainly helped him find a good home ---- hope to see his babies-- pass on that amazing coloring and coat!!

 I love that they said he was too spoiled to be a race horse- had a mind of his own!!!

Forgot he was a ridgeling until I went to remove him from my watch list.  Wouldn't it be wondrous if he could produce some good runners!

 Cannot keep up with all the retirements the past few days.  The major one for me is Tiznow being pensioned.  What a truly great race horse and sire he has been.  I follow his sons in their sire careers  (the ones who have not been exported already!).  Am so hopeful Tourist will prove to be really good.  Also follow the other tail male descendants of Man o' War  who have sons producing, esp. Bertrando and Honor and Glory.  I am hopeful for H&G's sons Bal a Bali and Put It Back.  I am one of those who believes it is good to keep the tail male to Man 'o War going for many reasons.  Most importantly to have outcross options when they are needed so very much.

Yes, we’ve had a few throwback pedigrees in horses the past couple of years. I’ll miss Tiznow when I get back to the stud farms in Kentucky. I hope he enjoys a long and healthy true retirement!
