General/Questions / 2021 Retired Stallions
« on: January 03, 2018, 10:36:07 pm »
2021 was an amazingly rough year for stallions, especially in the final few months. I just wanted to take a quick look at the stallions we lost (via retirement); some people may not even have realized it! RL stallions excluded, as they were purposefully retired for new RL stallions to take their place.

GCh. Steal Your Heart (WCh. Secret of Love x Second Chance - Create)
Bronze. His final crop consists of just 3 foals due this year. He has sired 22 winners including 3 SW's and 1 millionaire in GCh. Stealing Hollywood. His two other SW's are Ch. Gimme Love and Love Vigilante. Half to stallions WCh. As You Wish (sire) and FFCh. High Chances (dam); half to the dam of WCh. I'm Your Angel. He does not yet have an heir.

WCh. Gotta Go (GCh. Go For Dash x Times Ebony - Create)
Gold; Chef-de-Race (C/S). His final crop, due this year, is expected to be a full book of 30. He has sired 83 winners including 21 stakes winners, 11 MSW's and 7 millionaires. His millionaires include GCh. Yougottaloveme, GCh. Gotta Be Royal, Ch. Gotta Secret, and NCh. Go Go Dancer. Half to stallions ICh. Devil His Due (sire) and WCh. Nightfight (dam). He does not yet have an heir.

WCh. Dixie Time (Create)
Silver. Final crop is expected to be just 11 foals. He has sired 37 winners including 6 SW's, and 3 MSW' with millionaire Ch. Time Marches On, Ch. Pieces of Eight and Ch. Tempus Fugit. He does not yet have an heir.

NCh. Black Light II (Black Satin x Majestic Light - Magic Man).
Bronze. Final crop is expected to be a full 30 foals. Sire of 50 winners, including 5 SW's, and 1 MSW. His SW's include Ch. Moving Backwards, Ch. Flood Lights, Celestina, Bela Talbot, and Walkin on Sunshine. Only son of Black Satin to stand at stud. He does not yet have an heir.

ICh. Doodles (Red Sunset x Graceful Exit - Create)
Bronze. Final crop expected to be 24 foals. Sire of 68 winners including 13 SW's, 5 MSW's, and 2 millionaires. His MSW's are GCh. Theft, Ch. Liner Notes, Ch. Glitteratti, Ch. Gatum Gatum, and Ch. Contemporary Style. Only son of Red Sunset to stand at stud. He does not yet have an heir.

ICh. Long Live the King (Bold Ruler x Infinity - Create)
Silver. Also expecting a full final crop of 30 this year. Sire of 99 winners including 24 SW's, 10 MSW's and 4 millionaires. His millionaires include NCh. Repudiate, GCh. Royal Fanfare, Ch. True Royalty, and Ch. Emperor. Via his sire he is half to stallion WCh. King David. He does not yet have an heir.

GCh. Ace of Hearts (ICh. Highland Magic x Blazin' Hearts - Brazen Remark).
Unranked; only produced 5 crops with his oldest foals having just turned three this year. His final crop is expected to just be 5 foals. Sire of 23 winners including 2 SW's in Ch. Tin Cup Chalice and Ch. Witty Cream. Half to stallions ICh. Spock and NCh. Hogsmeade through their sire; the only male descendent of Brazen Remark to stand at stud. He does not yet have an heir (it's early, yet!).

ICh. Sixth Day (Planet Hollywood x GCh. Carbon Copy - Cross Roads)
Bronze. His final crop is only three strong. Sire of 52 winners including 13 SW's, 5 MSW's and 1 millionaire. His MSW's are Ch. Gabriela, Ch. Schiaparelli, Ch. Alfie, Ch. Generous Patron, and Ch. Twizzle Stix. He was the last Planet Hollywood at stud -- half to retired NCh. Void and deceased Ch. Rumor Has It. He does not yet have an heir.

WCh. Drum Major (GCh. High On Love x Rapunzel)
Unranked; another whose oldest crop just turned three. Sire of 29 winners including 1 SW/MSW in Ch. Drums Please. His final crop will be just 15 horses. Half to stallion GCh. Galaxy's Zodiac (via sire). No heir yet, but still early.

NCh. Yes It's Paddy (Create)
Bronze. A full final crop of 30 is expected. Sire of 42 winners including 7 SW's and 1 MSW. His stakes winners include Ch. Erebor, Ch. Hope Floats, Ch. Saint Patrick, Ch. Irish Eye, and Ch. Galactic Rascal. He does not yet have an heir.

Foaling Barn / Black Storm West 2022 Foals
« on: January 02, 2018, 04:15:36 am »
Finally our first foals of the year arrive, and of course neither were due for a few more days.

Frostmourne, 9.3hh dark gray colt
Frosted x Deadly Beauty - NCh. Devil May Care (S)
Nice big dark gray colt with not a speck of white on him; I'm quite excited for Frosted as a sire in FF. Second foal for his dam, who was bred on a lease.
*Shanthi - Let me know if his name needs changing. There's already a Frostbite in the game.

Sunstep, 9.2hh brown filly
ICh. Calle de Oro x Betterthansunshine - Created
This girl arrived a few days early. She's half to SP Ch. Better Be Gone. Her dam was bred on a lease and has returned to Blackhawk Ridge.
*Added: Just discovered Betterthansunshine died shortly after giving birth. This has been a very rough year for everyone.

1 Colt | 1 Filly | 0 Stillborn -- 84 due

General/Questions / Stallion Spotlight January I: Celtic Star
« on: January 01, 2018, 11:34:41 pm »
Stallion Spotlight: January I

NCh. Celtic Star
2009 light bay Thoroughbred stallion, 16.1hh
Created
[view]

CAREER
Bred by FF, he was purchased by Coleman Branch last year to continue stallion duties. On the track, he won 14 of 59 starts and banked over $2.7 million. Career highlights include wins in the G1 Eclipse Stakes, G1 Cigar Breeders’ Stakes, G2 Theo Marks Stakes, G2 Dixie Stakes, G2 Hill Stakes, and more. Additionally he hit the board in multiple major G1 races including the Dubai Duty Free, Coz Place, Coronation Cup, King George VI and Queen Elizabeth stakes, and the Bailey’s Irish Champion Stakes. During his career he set three speed records, twice at 10f and once at 14f, all over the flat turf.

He won stakes races from age 3-5, winning 7 of 16 times at 3 and hitting the board 60% of the time at age 5 when he earned $1.5 million. Most of his success came at classic and endurance distances on the turf.

During his career he bested such stallions as Silver Wizard, Express Yourself, Black Warrior, Player, Clockstopper, and Black Light II.

INJURY HISTORY
Between five years of racing he suffered two injuries: swelling at age 2 that may have factored into his one unplaced start that year, and heat in June of his three year old career. He was injury-free for his subsequent 50 starts.

LINEAGE
As a created stallion, I will be taking a closer look at his foals and the backgrounds of the mares who produced MSW/SW/SP foals.

SIRE RECORD
At the time of this post, he is Bronze-ranked (4.9). Celtic Star has sired 84 foals from 5 crops with 24% starters, 50% winners, 15% stakes winners and 5% multiple stakes winners. Some of his highest-earning offspring are NCh. Tir Na Nog, Ch. Celtic Rose, Ch. Peacefully, Duende.

It needs to be noted that despite five crops, Celtic Star’s second crop was only 3 foals, his third crop of 5 foals, and he had no foals in his fourth crop. His biggest crops are his first crop in 2016 (18 foals) and his 2020 crop (30 foals). Five of his race-age progeny are unraced, and two of his four unplaced foals have been inactive since 2019. However, he did produce NCh. Tir Na Nog in his first crop, who is expected to retire this year and assume stallion duties.

Out of 65 stallions w/ started offspring:
  • 43rd in highest winning percentage of offspring
  • 33rd in offspring earnings
  • 45th in highest G1-placed offspring
  • 11th in G1-winning offspring

Leading Earners
  • NCH. TIR NA NOG ($2,890,050), G1 Hong Kong Cup, G1 Barretts Stakes, G2 Del Mar Derby, G3 Grafton Cup, G3 October Cup
  • DUENDE ($228,000), G3 Stars and stripes Breeders’ Cup Turf.
  • CH. CELTIC ROSE ($184,150), Ungr. Hilltop Stakes (SC). Still winning at 5 and injury free entire life.
  • CH. PEACEFULLY ($199,100), 2nd Ungr. Mike Lee Stakes, Ungr. Broadway Handicap, 3rd G2 First Flight Stakes.
  • FURY ORDER ($91,050). 4th G2 Dwyer Stakes.

Foals for Thought
Looking at all 10 of his winners, 2 had their best career year at age 2 (20%), 2 at age 3 (30%), and 6 at age 4 or older (60%).

From his ten winners, six were out of created mares, including MSW NCh. Tir Na Nog. Of his game-bred crosses, these mares were by Twin Oaks, Class Act, Secretariat, and Black Legend. All of his foals seem to favor mid to long turf or steeplechase. From this same batch, half suffered career injuries: three from a single case of limping (all at age 5), one had swelling at two, and one had swelling at four and a cut at five. However, 3 of the 5 injured had dams who also suffered from a career injury at three or older. A fourth dam was created and unraced, so it is unknown if the injury could have been chance or from the sire or from the dam.

* * *
Celtic Star currently stands in Kentucky at Coleman Branch for $5,000 (2021 fee).
He is BC nominated and he does not require approval to breed to.

FUN FACT: He is the only light bay horse at stud.

Please share your own foals and successful crosses below.
*I understand there probably won’t be many, so perhaps show any planned support for expected foals of 2022 or breeding plans for the upcoming season!

General/Questions / 2022 Foals
« on: December 14, 2017, 05:08:23 pm »
I am getting stupidly excited for the next batch of foals! This is my biggest crop ever (about 85) with 21 due in January alone. I will try and lease just ONE mare next year, as that was pre-arranged haha. This will unexpectedly be the final crop for Yes It's Paddy, so fingers crossed all foalings are successful. How is everyone else looking with their upcoming crop? Just trying to reboot the forum chatter.  ;)
