More on Calumet and I like what I'm reading.  And I wonder if they'll move English Channel from Lanes End to Calumet.

Classic Hopes in Calumet's Renewal

 ...the acquisition of Americain, who will fall heir to a number of mares purchased specifically to be sent to his sire. These moves do not suggest someone who is looking either for profits in the sale ring or a quick return on investment at the track. What they do suggest is that Kelley is serious about breeding horses that can recapture Calumet's glory days in the mid-20th century. And that means horses with the stamina, soundness, and speed to capture Triple Crown races, the top weight-for-age races, and major handicaps.

I didn't get this-darn it! Of course, since I'm not in KY, it really doesn't matter. Perhaps the future open houses will be given with more notice?

I fell in love with Banimpire's looks and was so excited about Chad Brown's excitment over her.  Now she is going to be bred to Galileo to help improve stamina here in the US - I'm gonna be following those babies.  Her new owner's name has not yet been disclosed.  

Do you get the feeling there is a movement starting to get underway to improve the breed here?  Lots of exciting news on the breeding front lately....and it's happening here.  Finally.

Tattersalls sale session topped by $2.5 million Banimpire

Banimpire’s new owner will send her to Coolmore stallion Galileo, McDonald said, adding, “We are keen to buy European pedigrees to bring in more versatility, stamina, and strength to our U.S. pedigrees.”
