Jim Simpson, the President of Hanover Shoe Farms, has announced that the 2013 book for Somebeachsomewhere is officially full and closed.

Simpson noted, "We expected an incredible response based on the success of Beach's first crop to the races and the way his yearlings sold at the Fall sales. Nevertheless we have been totally overwhelmed by the response we received. USTA rules limit his book to 160 mares. Thus far we have received over 200 applications for his services. Almost, without exception, these mares are worthy of this great horse's services.

"Nevertheless we feel that our first duty is to the syndicate members and those who have previously supported him. We are now going through the almost impossible task of determining which mares will be accepted and which will regrettably be declined. We expect to be able to get back to those who have sent applications by mid-December."

Somebeachsomewhere is presently in Australia where he is serving a full book of mares at David James' Empire Stallions Corp. He will return to Hanover Shoe Farms in late January where he will begin his fifth year of service.
