I've always liked Kitten's Joy, great-grandsire being Northern Dancer. Also like Afleet Alex, Aragorn & English Channel.

On an unrelated note, I'm shocked by the number of big name studs currently that are by Saddlers' Wells. 

He's pretty influential alright. The number of mares that the Coolmore stallions covered last year though is phenomenal, especially they're jumps stallions. Close to 300 for some of them.

Leroidesanimaux

While not incredibly famous, I appreciate the fact that he is pretty much unrelated to a lot of the other horses in the game. He is 12

I've added a poll - think we have enough suggestions to start with. :)

I voted for More than Ready and Candy Ride, but I'd also be pulling for Dubawi and Empire Maker!

When will the new stallions be added to the game? :) I voted for Leroidesanimeaux, because I like the latin associations in his name (and he's Brazilian-bred) and he is the sire of this year's Kentucky Derby winner, Animal Kingdom. And he's very pretty! ;)
The other stallion that received my vote is leading here anyway, so I will keep it a secret.

Once this round is over, I'll take the top votes (4-5, most likely) and do another round. Then whichever 2 win that round will be added to the game.

His son Animal Kingdom may enter stud next year. :) Now he will run in the Dubai World Cup. You can read his story here: Animal Kingdom.
