This is exciting and was mentioned a few weeks ago but must be official now.  I see they have cleared up the ownership ties in the drf article.  http://www.drf.com/news/arc-winner-danedream-retired-be-bred-frankel

 I feel she will not be limited to stallions in Japan.  She has world ties.

He's getting some of the best, and it's exciting that we might have some of his runners over here.  Fingers crossed we do.

They have decided!

Havre de Grace to Tapit for first mating; Plum Pretty to Distorted Humor

“We did the genetic research on this end, and Tapit is the best cross for her,” Wayne Sweezey said. “I’m pumped. We’ve had a number of Tapits born on the farm, so it’s not new to be breeding to Tapit, and to take that kind of mare to that kind of stallion is great.”
