Sorry to hear this Shelbie, glad you managed to get a few mares to him at least. Hope he has a long and happy retirement.

Annual Select Auction / Re: 2022 Annual Select Auction - How'd You Do?
« on: September 04, 2018, 02:59:48 pm »
Managed to get our two top choices with the other three we'd hoped to get going well over budget. Still managed to come home with five and as we managed to pick up the majority for their reserves, hopefully they'll earn back their purchase prices.

Previously unnamed yearling Archipelago was our top choice and most expensive purchase at $175,500. We picked up his sire Quarren at this sale a few years ago and are hopeful his son can follow in his footsteps. His dam is GCh Fanfare (What's It Worth) who was a MSW on both dirt and turf. She's also half to several stakes level performers including ICh Bay of Biscay and WCh Noteasybeinggreen.

Our second choice was Bellagio's Girl, a 6yo racemare by Bellagio out of Gold-ranked broodmare, NCh Set The Sails. She won a stakes race at 3 but didn't race again after two starts that year until earlier this year - I'd like to think she may have been more talented than her race record suggests as 6 of her 7 siblings to race are SP or better. She'll join the (ever expanding) broodmare band next year. Purchased for her reserve of $25,000.

Agreeable Bell is a lightly raced 4yo by Golden Text. She's only had two starts, both this year under FF management. She's been switched to SC already but managed a third place in a stakes race on her first start. We opted to bring her home based on her dam-side pedigree - she's out of Silver Devil, a daughter of Silver Skies who's broodmare daughters have a pretty strong record in the paddocks. Hopefully this mare will show some talent.

Dare To Try, a 3yo filly by Worthy Victor out of Platinum-ranked Canyoutopthis, was our second most expensive purchase at $45,000. She's yet to win this year but is MSP.

Dr Faustus completes the line-up. A weanling by Golden Text out of created mare Devil's Minstrel. Dam was unraced but has produced one stakes winner and 2 SP runners. 5 of her 7 foals to race are winners. Purchased for $25,000.

Horses For Sale / Generous' Auction
« on: August 11, 2018, 06:49:49 am »
As usual, I've collected a few too many ponies over the past 12 months so I'm holding a small auction, starting on the 18th of August. 45 horses consigned, a mixture of racehorses, broodmares and one or two yearlings. No reserves or purchasing limits.

Thanks for looking.
