1. Interview: Emma Berry sits down with Lanwades Stud's Kirsten Rausing.

“I have really cut down on numbers. I’m down 25, 30%. I have to look at the market all the time. People say, “Oh well, you’re an owner-breeder,” but I’m not. I have to sell all the colts and so when I do a mating, I have to figure that 50% of the time I’m likely to get a colt, which has to be sold."

2. Interview: Hubie de Burgh shares his thoughts on the global bloodstock industry.

"You can put your hand on your heart in Australia and look a guy in the eye and say, ‘give me some money to go in on a horse because you have a chance of getting it back again."

3. Video: Chad Brown gives an update on G1 Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf winner Newspaperofrecord (Ire) (Lope de Vega {Ire}).

“It’s definitely under consideration. I think it’s a wonderful idea, and we certainly want to participate in it, particularly with this filly–it’s very attractive, and it’s something I’ll be discussing with her owner, Seth Klarman.”

1. Video: Sue Finley chats to Coolmore's David O’Loughlin about No Nay Never's (USA) start at stud.

"It’s early days, and I think we’ll learn a lot more in the next year or two. He couldn’t have made a better start, he’s €100, 000 and he’s booked out."

2. Pedigree Insights: Andrew Caulfield analyses the pedigrees of Code of Honor (USA) and his sire, Noble Mission (GB).

"This raises the question of whether a mile and a quarter will ultimately suit Code of Honor. I will be surprised if it doesn’t, as Noble Mission’s G1 wins were gained at up to a mile and a half and the colt’s broodmare sire, the versatile Dixie Union, stayed at least a mile and an eighth, as he showed in defeating Captain Steve, Milwaukee Brew and More Than Ready in the GI Haskell Invitational H."

3. Feature: Eddie Woods believes that American Pharoah (USA) will be the leading first-season sire.

“First of all, it’s a great group. But I would have to say Pharoah. Mentally, they have all kinds of quality. I’ve had 12. They move beautifully."
