US Sire Dynaformer "Restricted Book" In 2012

Friday, 22nd July 2011

While “no retirement plans are yet being made for Kentucky veteran sire Dynaformer (Roberto-Andover Way, by His Majesty) he will turn 27-years-old next year & is likely to cover a restricted book at Three Chimneys Farm next season after getting half of his 50-strong book in-foal this year” reported racingpost.com. Dynaformer (whose latest star 3YO Blue Bunting who last weekend’s Gr1 Irish Oaks) stood this season at US$150,000 & Three Chimneys president Case Clay confirmed: “We'll give him another shot next year. In 2010, he got 69% of his book in-foal & this year it dropped to 50%. So what we're going to do next year is limit his book to 40 mares. I'm guessing his fertility next year will drop to below 50%, but the mares booked to him will be boarded on the farm so they can be bred at an optimum time. He's in excellent health - he's as mean as he's ever been & still regularly kicks bars out of his stall.” Gr2-winner Dynaformer “has defied the odds throughout his stud career, rising off an initial fee of US$5,000 at Wafare Farm to his current high of US$150,000”. Blue Bunting is just 1 of the stallion's 20 Gr1 winners, also including Kentucky Derby winner Barbaro & “European stand-outs Rainbow View, White Moonstone & Lucarno”.
