    Anyone heard any scuttlebutt yet as to what exactly George’s problem is. Is he a shy breeder? or "firing blanks" or what?

    Have I missed an official explanation of his problem.?

    nothing has been confirmed yet, to wether he will return to racing or not…they are awaiting a top fertility guy from the states..and when they know whats going on a announcement will be made.

    <br>If that’s the case Aidan, does this mean that we are very likely to see him race again?

    If so that’s just great news – Lockinge, Queen Anne, Sussex, QEII & Breeders Cup here we come!!

    Power to the people eh – We told those chaps at Coolmore we didn’t want to see George retire so they are kind enough to unretire him for us! Who says they don’t listen?

    :biggrin:

    There is no doubt about it, horse is back in Ballydoyle and all going well will be back on the racetrack this year. I dunno when it will be confirmed.

    Sure; as can geldings (e.g. Funny Cide).

    Imagine being refered to as  "failed stallion"

    Hes barmy enough already without having to hear the sniggers and gay slurs…

    Not sure i will be backing him in those circumstances

    Has GW been confirmed as being medically unable to fullifill the duties of a stallion ?..or is it more down to his immaturity ?

    If he performs well as a 4YO..could George’s stud value be enhanced ?

    The infertile can run in the BC.

    The Breeders’ Cup concept was brought in to being to put money back into the sport ; money from the vast profits breeders were making at the time ; the breeder’s conscience saying thanks .

    He is still an entire, as far as I know they plan to race him this year (he is already back in Ballydoyle since last week and in training) and see what happens next year regarding fertility etc. I would imagine even if they found the problem and could treat it now he would be too late to cover for this season.
