Lord Kanaloa entered stud in Japan in 2014.

In 2020, Almond Eye added three Grade 1 victories, the Japan Cup, the Tenno Sho (autumn), and the Victoria Mile, to her brilliant resume, and set a new Japanese record with nine Grade/Group 1 wins. She also was awarded Horse of the Year in Japan for a second time, with the brilliant mare having previously earned the top honor in 2018. Also in 2020, Danon Smash emulated his sire to win the Group 1 Hong Kong Sprint, and Tagaloa captured the Group 1 Blue Diamond Stakes in Australia. His progeny won 100 races or more in JRA in 2018, 2019, and 2020.

He was ranked second on the Japanese Leading Sire list in 2020.
