In the print edition of The Blood-Horse dated March 10, a story on Ashford Stud first-year stallion High Yield made reference to an unsubstantiated rumor that the stallion was failing to mount his mares. While the article stated that High Yield had no fewer than six mares in foal at the time the story was written and included a comment from an Ashford official saying there was no validity to the rumor, The Blood-Horse regrets publication of the article.
