[QUOTE=~*~anebel~*~;783667]She already has such a lovely horse though! But I guess having two 80% Grand Prix horses would be nice :P

Gosh wouldn't it? I would be in heaven lol

Mods, grant me the serenity to see the opinions I cannot change, courage to change the ones that should change, and the wisdom to spot the trolls.

A straw of his semen is over 5000 Euro.

It's like Marilyn Monroe - would we still think her so beautiful and desirable had she aged??
If they keep showing the horse, he will go lame and then they have detracted from his value. He won 3 golds at WEG and broke a bunch of records, now is a great time to retire him to stud.
I think they wont retire him untill after 2012. They will want an olympic medal to his name, preferably a gold one!

I think he will probably retire to stud immediately after the 2012 olympics.

Oh yeah, Olympics. Forgot about those, hah. I feel like they're so low key compared to WEGs.

I just talked with a good friend of Schokemohle's... sold for 15 m euros. And already have hundreds of mares wanting to breed.

You're right, he is a bit of a freak of nature and may not be able to pass his exact talent on directly... but while Secretariat didn't have direct offspring that did well he was known for producing spectacular broodmares who produced babies that were successful. But, even with a risk of just getting a so so baby, people are lining up to breed! I mean, isn't there always a risk in breeding that you might get something that's just ok?

Look at Olympic Ferro - great foals, terribly un-ridable for most people. Get a talented person on the horse and they'll get great scores and make it to the GP easily, but the same horse with any less of a rider ends up with a behavior issue or 15.

The risk of a mediocre foal is greatly reduced when a good mare is used. Considering Toto is only eligible for breeding to approved mares chances are we're going to be seeing a lot of nice foals from him. Plus, it's not like Toto himself is poorly bred himself, Gribaldi has produced many a dressage horse (incl. Anky's mount, Painted Black). Interesting though he has Dutch jumping lines below - could we be seeing some jumping horses from him when bred with the right mares?

It is also very common in European breeding to add jumping lines. It seems to be a nick that works out well more times than it doesn't.
