Justify (Scat Daddy–Stage Magic, by Ghostzapper) won’t be returning to stand at Coolmore Australia this spring and will remain at Coolmore’s Ashford Stud in Kentucky where he will cover a select book of mares to southern hemisphere time late in the year.

“It’s a similar situation to Frankel in England where they serve mares to southern hemisphere time,” said Coolmore’s Tom Magnier. “We will be sending up some of our best mares and some of our clients here will have the opportunity to send their mares to him too.”

“Many of the mares that might have visited Justify here have already been booked into our G1 Golden Slipper winner Shinzo (Aus) whose retirement was announced a few days ago,” added Magnier. “We have had a fantastic response to him from our clients.”

The Triple Crown winner has enjoyed a productive year in both hemispheres, including Northern Hemisphere champions Just F Y I and City Of Troy, in addition to Grade I winners Hard to Justify, Aspen Grove, Opera Singer and Arabian Lion. In the Southern Hemisphere, he is responsible for Storm Boy and Learning to Fly in Australia. Overall, he has 28 black-type winners and 18 group/graded winners.
