General/Questions / Re: 2022 Foals
« Last post by Shelbie on Today at 12:37:08 AM »
We have a staggering 104 mares, with 18 being leased, 17 are not in foal, and 1-2 more are expected to retire from the track. This is Yes It's Paddy's final crop and we're expecting 7 foals. Some of those expectant mares include a half-sister to Nightfight and Gotta Go, the dam of MSW Ch. Cherries Jubilee and SW Ch. Get the Axe, a MW daughter of Akhetnaten (who is proving to be a very nice damsire), and silver-ranked Voodoo Cocktail.

I don't want to list all the foals I'm excited for, as I don't want to jinx anything, but I am excited for the first foal out of the only half-sister to I'm Your Angel. Also excited for our first foals by American Pharaoh, Frosted, and Curlin. Fingers crossed for a safe foaling by 17yo gold-ranked Colors Waving, whom we acquired from the Color War awards this year.

My goal is to have less than 100 mares, but really I should be around 60-70 foals/year max. Failing.  :P

I'm excited for a couple foals I planned for this year:

Formal Occasion x Bright Session (B) - she already has a MSW by Formal Occasion so I hope that will be the same case with this foal.
Hogsmeade x Ch. Black Spiral (S) - she has a MSW & 2 SW by Hogsmeade's sire Highland Magic
Golden Text x GCh. Kill the King
Quintet x NCh. Daddy's Little Star (B)
Black Cherry x Ch. Not Another Mare (B)
Phenomenal x Tsotsi
Player x Classic Hightail (S)

Haha, I wonder how I got to have 40 yearlings if I have only 33 broodmares ;)

63 due here - I'm trying to keep my numbers "low" around the 50 mark at max but clearly am failing at this. I also have retired 11 more broodmares so far. I probably need to start considering some hard cuts to certain lines but it's so hard!

Most of our mares are in foal to our own stallions. This will be the first crop born to Allinvain, Bear Witness, and Zadar. It will be the second crop for Exit Poll and Fight The Twilight. This will be the third crop for Ducati - his first crop will hit the tracks next spring and I am SO excited to see how that goes. This will be the ninth crop from Bellagio.

Some of the highlights include:

By outside stallions:
Sponsored x NCh. Alakazam (unrated)
Golden Text x GCh. Singsong (unrated)
Calle de Oro x ICh. Twilight Embers (platinum)

By Allinvain and out of:
Ch. Bold Jewel (silver and climbing, 11.4)
GCh. D'lightful (unrated)
Highland Treasure (gold and climbing, 13.6)
Ch. Kiasport (silver and climbing, 13.3)
Must Be Royal (silver and climbing, 8.0)

By Bear Witness and out of:
GCh. Allnighter II (unrated)
Fleur's Debate (gold)
GCh. Coquette (unrated)
I'm a Star (silver and climbing, 7.4)
Ch. Keria Toon (platinum)
Oh So Sharp (gold)
ICh. What's Your Dream (silver)

By Bellagio and out of:
Etta James (silver and climbing - 9.6)

By Ducati and out of:
GCh. Always Ladylike (unrated)
GCh. Madd Karol (silver)
Uptown Girl (gold)

By Fight The Twilight and out of:
Lucky Fox (silver and climbing, 12.0)
Murder By Numbers (silver and climbing, 11.5)
GCh. Nicole's Majic (unrated)
Sovereign Song (platinum)

By Zadar and out of:
NCh. Afterglow (unrated)

Looking forward to the arrival of Sionnach’s first crop and hoping for a safe and healthy foaling season.

I had a look at numbers - expecting 82 foals next year :o

We’ve got four leased mares who’ll be leaving us, nine mares that were unbred this year and two that’ll likely retire at the end of this year/end of January.

Most of next year’s breedings are planned but there’s two or three that are yet to be decided.

All foals are much anticipated... I especially hope that the older mares will deliver safe & sound babies; like the 16 years old WCh. Dreamboat, in foal to our stallion Al Mundhir. Her weanling colt is growing big and strong but two years ago she had a stillborn filly. Also, we have a few mares in foal to NCh. Space Chips, our second stallion. It will be his first crop.

General/Questions / Re: December Stallion Spotlight II: Strike It Rich
« Last post by ivycreekfarm on December 16, 2017, 02:10:37 PM »
I've just noticed that I don't own any Strike It Rich offspring. Apparently I need to fix this!
Thanks for shedding light on another great stallion!
