After some careful thought about the pros and cons of waiting to find another race to enter Tense Imagination in, I decided to go ahead and retire him to stud duties. The next race I would be interested in entering him in would be at the end of February, and I wasn’t really keen on missing February breedings.
Just to repeat the specifics, so no one has to scroll up:
-$5,000 stud fee for their first season
-Both are BC nominated (Powerful Soul will be as well once he retires in the next week or so)
-3 mares per stable right now to make sure everyone who knows for sure they want slots can get them. If it looks like interest is limited in the next month or so, I’ll expand that.
-Live foal guarantee!
-Does not require approval, but can request ahead of time here on the forum.
