Sorry to see him go. He got to 6 SW, etc as a 3YO but I just couldn't get him to get the last SW he needed to become Stud-Qualified. Finally decided to sell him in the hopes that he might have an uptake in form in new surroundings. Unfortunately, that didn't happen and, as he is now 8YO and probably well past his prime, I can understand why he would be retired.

We have another horse in a similar position, NCh. Gaudy Night, who is a year younger but also only needs one more SW. Unlike Bracton, Gaudy Night has shown a little recent form this year, including winning the G1 Grand National for the second time, so we are still hopeful for him.

Hopefully Gaudy Night makes it! Bracton has not earned a dime or even hit the board in years so I felt it was finally time to throw in the towel. I am still hopeful for Clowning Around though, who just needs a SW of any grade. At least he's 6 and has hit the board this year (albeit in an allowance). Hoping a very long rest until the Breeders' Series this winter will be enough.

Picked up a final three at 25k each. Overall, only spent $209,000 for 8 horses from the Select Auction. I think I've done worse with just 3 horses in prior years.

Mandalay Bay (Blue Smoke x Las Vegas). Weanling filly, named for a Luxury hotel in Vegas, Of her 4 raced half-sibs, one is champion-titled and a SW and one has hit the board in all 5 of her lifetime starts. Gimme A Shot is gold as a damsire, so fingers crossed. Las Vegas is also half to the dam of NCh. Crafty Magic.

Folkloriques (French Ruby x Folk Song). Formerly named The People's Song, yearling colt purchased from Coleman Branch. His dam set 2 speed records at SC, Folkloriques is a full sibling to Ch. Cabrette who is SP over jumps, and half to Twelve Bar Blues who has won 6/9 SC starts and has been off the board just once. Given Ruby's tendency to throw jump foals, he should be a jump monster once he ages.

Mord'Sith (Must Be Magic x Queen of Scots). Set a speed record and was G2P while racing. Half to gold-ranked Ch. Marie de Guise and silver-ranked Ch. Spectacular Queen. I don't have any Must Be Magic daughters and he's gold for damsire, so very happy to pick her up.

One highlight! Though after a rather disastrous meet for the 4th time in a row, I sent about half the herd home. Maybe it will hurt less and we can come back better for the winter holidays.

Brought home our fifth, with pending bids on another 3 after Shanthi raised the limits because I have a problem, haha.

Ode to Autumn, a weanling by our late stud NCh. Yes It's Paddy out of the silver-ranked Reine-de-Course mare Autumn Melodies. He's half to MSW and millionaire GCh. Autumn Cat and 4 other winners. Bought for 25k.

I also decided to focus on good broodmares and youngstock. I feel compared to prior years I got away with murder in what I paid.

Nabbed top choice Wild Oats (Unnamed before, undecided on name), a Strike it Rich yearling out of Ch. Worth Her Oats (Gold, Reine-de-Course). Dam was MSW of over 500k, 4 speed records, and has produced 2 MSW's from 3 runners. I want to strengthen Strike it Rich's foals now that he's in the barn and felt she was a steal at 25k.

First of the nice broodmares to add to our herd is Ch. Seeking Sadler (Sadlers Wells x Seeking the Fire). G1W and MSP. She's already silver ranked with a SW and SP between two foals and comes in foal to Run Jenny Run. Picked up for 34k.

Ch. Cross Your Heart (Steal Your Heart x Cross My Heart). Mostly picked up for her damline, as she's half to As You Wish and several stakes producers, and her dam is half to my mare, Passing Fancy (Gold, 3 SW's from 4 runners/winners). She's MSP with 1 foal, a 2yo, who is FF-owned/campaigned. Purchased for 25k.

Only Wonder (Prince of Wonder x Only Ask). Unraced in 2 years, but a big mahogany bay, MSP, has hit the board 6/8 times. She's only five so hoping a few months at the farm will give her a nice breather to race a few more times being joining the broodmare herd. Half to 4 MSW's. Bought for 25k.

Unnamed (Yes It's Paddy x Autumn Melodies). Out of gold-ranked Autumn Melodies, he is half to MSW/millionaire GCh. Autumn Cat. Picked up for 25k.
