Musket Man - I always had alot of repsect for him.  I hope he does well with the move.  Depending on how his runners do eventually you just never know - he could get to KY.

I just read that Giant Oak is continuing to improve and may only have a bruise - we will likely see him race again......so this is a  non-retirement post : )

American Lion retires to Darby Dan.  Happy to read their excitement about him, he's a beautiful colt.

American Lion retired, to stand at Darby Dan

“I have followed American Lion’s career, and have always been keen to stand him at stud,” said Robert Hammond, Darby Dan’s general manager. “He's the best looking son of Tiznow I've ever seen. He's a big, handsome, strapping physical who was very precocious on the track and showed tremendous speed. I am looking at Tiznow to be the next great sire of sires.”
