Sakura Springs 2026 Stallions

Since it looks like others are getting a head start on stallion advertising, I thought I’d start up a thread for the 2026 Sakura Springs stallion listings. Still only three standing at stud at our stables, as it doesn’t look like we’ll have any new qualifiers in the next couple months.


  • All three stallions will be Breeders’ Cup nominated.
  • Live foal guarantee
  • New for this year: breeding slots will be by request only. Last year we had some issues with the system not saving breeding arrangements and those slots being used up before I could catch the issue, so this should help ensure requested slots don’t get lost.
  • Edited to add: 25% discount for multi-stakes winning mares who are unranked, 50% discount for gold ranked mares, 75% discount for platinum mares. I’ll try to remember to check each one, but if you could note it in your message, that’d be great!
  • Also edited to add: An extra 25% discount for above qualifying mares who also retired with a clean health record (no injuries).

Now for the boys…

Could I get a April 1 slot to Powerful Soul for Blue-Footed Booby (multi-stakes winning mare) and a April 2 slot to Final Scene for Jaded Edge?

Updated. Also, I should note I had to update Tense Imagination’s info. Apparently I copy and pasted from an old document I had put together before I officially retired him. This is what I get for doing things when I’m tired. Lol. All his info should be fixed now.

Could I get the following

American Storm to Final Scene Feb 1b
Blaromina to Powerful Soul Feb 1b
Bluegrass Gal to Tense Imagination Feb 1b

Thanks a bunch

Got it. Also, I noticed that Bluegrass Gal is a MSW mare who is unranked, so I’ve applied the 25% discount as well.

Could I get the following please?

Tense Imagination to Away In Dreams July 2a
Tense Imagination to Alealea May 1a

Got them!

Can I get Tense Imagination’s remaining April 2 slot for Ardiente (MSW) please?


May I please get the following slots?

Powerful Soul
Feb 1- Sun Spot (G)
Aug 1- Thelma Pickles (S)

Final Scene
Feb 1- Pay Day (MSW) Unranked
May 1- Beta Antares

Tense Imagination
Feb 1- Mystical Journey
Jun 1- Laird’s Diamond

Everything should be updated now. @imagine I gave Ardiente a 50% discount because not only is she an unranked MSW but she also has no recorded injuries. @Nicole11 I moved one of my mares around so you could have the Jun 1 spot, so you should be good to go.


Could I get two more to Powerful Soul please?

A May 1 for Watch The Stars and a June 2 for Winning Rainbow. Both MSW (unranked). Watch The Stars retired injury free.

Thank you

Got them both booked!

I finally had some time to go through some breeding plans. Could I get the following please?

Powerful Soul x Streaky Player March 1b - Could I get the discount for her? She is a MSW and has had no injuries.

Powerful Soul x Wary Measure March 2a

Powerful Soul x Sun Also Rises Feb 2b

Tense Imagination x Round Event Jul 1a

Everyone should be booked now. I moved my mare out of the Feb 2b slot to a later date for Powerful Soul so you could have the spot. Let me know if anything looks out of place, but it should be set up.

Can I please get Tense Imagination’s Mar 1a slot for Giant’s Frolic?

Updated. Gave her the 2nd March slot since I just approved a private request for the first March slot. They should be the same, though, if I understand everything correctly. Also gave Giant’s Frolic a 50% discount since she is an unranked MSW and has no injuries.

Could I please book the following:

Tense Imagination - Mar 2a for Crimson Bouquet, Jul 1b for Sportstress
Final Scene - Mar 1a for Life’s Magic, Mar 1b for Tamonia
Powerful Soul - Mar 3b for Majorca (MSW, hasn’t retired yet but will after 2 more races)


Got it! I reserved a spot for your stable with no named mare so you can breed Majorca when she’s retired.
