Triple Crown Winners American Pharoah, Justify To Skip Southern Hemisphere Breeding Season

American Pharoah

Triple Crown winners American Pharoah and Justify will not shuttle to Coolmore Australia for the 2022 Southern Hemisphere breeding season, instead remaining at Coolmore's Ashford Stud in Kentucky during the Northern Hemisphere's offseason, Racing Post reports.

A statement from Coolmore said the decision was made to rest the two stallions for the season, but they were both expected to return to Australia for the summer and fall of 2023. Their Northern Hemisphere breeding schedules will be uninterrupted.

American Pharoah, a 10-year-old son of Pioneerof the Nile, was set to stand his sixth Southern Hemisphere season in 2022 at an advertised fee of AUS$29,500 (US$20,402). His Australian runners are led by Group 3 winners Head of State and Pretty Amazing.

Justify, a 7-year-old by Scat Daddy, was scheduled to stand for AUS$55,000 (US$38,047). His first foals on both hemispheres are 2-year-olds of 2022.

Justify's early runners are led by Statuette, who won the Group 2 Balanchine Stakes in Ireland, and U.S. stakes-placed Tahoma.
