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

A statement from Coolmore said the decision had been made to rest both stallions for the season, but they were both due to return to Australia for the summer and fall of 2023. Their breeding schedules in the hemisphere North will be uninterrupted.

American Pharoah, a 10-year-old son of Pioneerof the Nile, was set to hold its sixth season in the Southern Hemisphere in 2022 for a reported fee of A$29,500 (US$20,402). His Aussie riders are led by Group 3 winners Head of State and Pretty Amazing.

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

Justify’s early runners are led by Statuette, who won the Group 2 Balanchine Stakes in Ireland, and USA-placed Tahoma.
