I am a breeder and since the breeding season only started on Feb 15th and many mares even if they foaled early are not yet ready to meet the stallions I think this thread is overestimating the" Coolmore doing a goodwill gesture to customers" thing. As a real goodwill gesture to those mares who missed GW because he could not perform Coolemore could offer a proven Danehill sire in Danehill Dancer( at GW’s fee) who would be fully capable of adding another 20 mares or so to his book. For those mares not yet arrived they will make other arrangements in any event. HRE is not GW and the market will not consider him so. If I owned Sal’s 3 mares they would not be visiting HRE. I would expect travel cost and board refunds from Coolmore and I would be off to the second choice stallion I had on my list at Coolmores expense as far as non fee items were concerned.
