I've still got that gorgeous Paynter boy I picked at KEEJAN, recently gelded, and out of interest pulled data on Paynter. I wonder how much the Jockey Club's new mare fee is playing into reporting since the stallion reporter must pay $35 per mare covered. Anyhow, when Paynter started out, year 1 he is reported to have covered 158 mares (2015). Year 2 153 mares (2016). Year 3 103 mares (2017 the first year of the $35 fee). In 2018 he got 34 (!?!). I have not paid enormous attention to recent sire stats but to me his live foal to cover ratio seems kind of low for such a young horse.

Something interesting I found out is that the veterinary practice rules have apparently changed since AP Indy had that retained testicle removed at 3 and went on to be a successful racehorse and sire. That is no longer allowed - I've been told that if they take out the one inside they have to take the one outside also since cryptorchidism is a heritable trait. I wonder how many Paynter's, like mine, were cryptorchid and if that is playing into decision to breed. Indeed I wonder what effect that will have on the AP Indy sire line, since his sons and grandsons can also apparently pass the trait.

Anyone got any input on this?

So Run for the Roses, as fast as you can.....
