Spendthrift - Free Drop Billy to Iowa

The latest Spendthrift sales have begun, with Free Drop Billy relocating to Iowa State University. He’ll stand for a fee of $2,500, stands and nurses.

The horse didn’t turn out to be a good enough sire for the Kentucky market, so he’s being given a second chance in an easier state. I’m not sure how that qualifies as an eviction.


It is tongue in cheek. Not necessarily a commentary on how they do their business.

Always thought he was a nice horse. His early foals and yearlings through the sales were nice made horses too. Wish him the best.

And Honor Code (Lane’s End) is off to Japan. He had some standouts; I don’t know how many mares he bred this year but I suspect it was much lower than in his first 2-3 years. He’s ranked #60 on the NA sires’ list, but the sales numbers for his progeny were likely as much or maybe more of a factor in the decision to sell.

Honor Code was one of my favorites. Sad to see him go to Japan. Not only was he beautiful, he put the same type of quality in his offspring.
