Thanks for the link, Muleskick. I do remember reading about this quite a while ago, but it really hit me while I was going through the November catalog and seeing all the Overbrook mares in there.
So I guess Storm Cat and a little band of horses will just live out their lives in a quiet corner of the farm with a small support staff? That is a very nice way to close the book on Overbrook, I suppose.
I can't imagine what TB organization could possibly lease the Overbrook property, especially now with so many mares leaving for states with better state-bred incentives.
Kentucky better get its head out of its behind before it is too late. There are so many that sit in their insulated little worlds resting on their laurels - nothing is forever, my friends.
