Girvin is retired from racing after winning some graded stakes races and lots of money. Anyone know if he is going to stud anyplace?

Ashford (Coolmore America) may be a good spot for Girvin. Girvin's grandfather, Tale of the Cat, is there, but he probably won't last much longer at stud (he is 24 years old). Giant's Causeway, who was at Ashford, recently passed away, so Ashford may be looking for another Storm Cat line stallion. That could be Girvin.

Girvin will be standing the 2019 breeding season at Ocala Stud in Florida in a deal where he will be co-owned by Ardrie Srud and Girvin's regular owners.

Girvin won the Haskell Stakes as well as the Louisiana Derby and the Risen Star Stakes.

Good luck old boy and enjoy your new job.

I guess that Ashford is getting their Storm Cat line stallion. His name is Justify, who just won the triple crown. Maybe he will be a good replacement for Giant's Causeway. I hope so.

Good luck Justify.

I should have mentioned that Ashford also lost Scat Daddy in 2015, which was a tough loss for the farm because Scat Daddy was a great sire and was only 11 years old. Of course, Scat Daddy was the sire of Justify, so was another Storm Cat line stallion. Justify was a great racehorse, but it is yet to be seen if he will be as good a sire as Scat Daddy was.

There was also the loss of Giant's Causeway, another great Storm Cat line stallion, who Ashford (Coolmore) may want to replace. Some Storm Cat line horses that may be going to stud soon are Mendelssohn, Seahenge, Audible, Sharp Azteca, Good Samaritan, Engage, Flameaway, and Promises Fulfilled, and others.

Mendelssohn and Seahenge probably have the best chance of those mentioned to wind up at Ashford because I think that the farm owns a piece of them. Should be interesting to see what happens.

It will be Mendelssohn. I just found out today, but don't know what his fee will be yet.

Good luck Mendelssohn and Justify. I hope that they will be adequate replacements for the recently deceased Scat Daddy and Giant's Causeway.
