Every year on Valentine's Day, the great Thoroughbred farms open their breeding sheds and begin their primary business. The fearsome roars of stallions and the vigorous encouragement of their handlers echo through breeding country, from the gentle hills of Kentucky to the rich valleys of California. Cheap stud, top stud, old stud, wild stud, from the Hall of Fame horse to the harem stallion with his feral herd, "Stud" looks at intimate acts in idyllic settings and the billion-dollar business behind them.
