As for the applications to have him as a sire it's all very selective as you can assume:
By the look of him, he is thriving too, under the care of Rob Bowley, who describes it as an "honour and a privilege" to look after the world's most sought-after stallion.
"He's doing well," he said. "When he arrived, he was 550 kilos, and last time we weighed him he was 583, so he's put on a substantial amount."
Standing back for a moment to admire the physique of his new charge, Bowley, who walks him seven miles every day, added: "He enjoys his food, and he's got the frame, and he's putting it on in all the right places, his quarters and his flanks.
"You get a lot of horses who put a lot of weight on all at once, and they tend to put it round their belly and they just look fat, but everything about him is a lovely horse."
Philip Mitchell, Juddmonte's general manager, and a key figure in the operation for 25 years, has been sifting through all the applications.
He told me: "He would have the best book of mares any first-season stallion has ever received.
"A lot of the mares are for owner/breeders who will race their progeny. We want to try not to have too many going to the sales-ring to ensure a level of exclusivity.
"There have been about 250 applications, 60 for Group One race-winning mares, or mares which have produced a Group One winner, so the bar is pretty high."
