South African Studs Buy US Sire Just As Well
In South Africa, a group of breeders from KwaZulu Natal "has purchased high-class US turf performer Just As Well (A.P.Indy-No Matter What, by Nureyev) as a stallion prospect" to begin his breeding career at Bruce le Roux's Spring Valley Stud for the 2011 season, reported racingpost.com. The US Gr3-winning & US triple Gr1-placed 8YO stallion is a half-brother to UK Gr1 Fillies' Mile & Irish Gr1 Matron Stakes winner Rainbow View (also triple Gr1-placed); their dam No Matter What won the US Gr1 Del Mar Oaks & is a half-sister to US Gr1-winning sire E Dubai. It is also "the immediate family of US Gr1 Breeders' Cup Classic winner Raven's Pass".
