The end of an era: Holy Bull has been pensioned from stud duty
The 21-year-old stallion, grown white with age, will retire to Jonabell Farm in Kentucky, where he began his stud career in 1996
During his 16 years as a stallion, Holy Bull sired six grade 1 winners, including Kentucky Derby winner Giacomo and Breeder’s Cup Juvenile winner Macho Uno. Overall, around 70% of his starters recorded wins
Happy retirement, Bull!

A filly called Gaya
(Quest - Saint Royal, by Saint Ballado)
This would be the filly that won the race that Cripsy lost ><
My mom picked her because she was a pretty gray (nevermind that Crispy was also a pretty gray), and she ran last-to-first down the stretch
Picture by me!
