How'd You Do? / 9/18
« on: September 20, 2010, 05:33:57 pm »
Looks like there might be a few races still to run but the ones involving our stable's horses have gone ahead so here's how we did.

Sent out five starting with Lachlan Steven who finished 3rd in his NW1 SC after taking the field along for most of the race. He dropped back in trip after his last start after again leading the field then fading away in the closing stages. Not sure if he needs a shorter trip or whether he's too lit up by all the equipment he's got on. Think we'll try a shorter trip before taking anything off though as he's certainly showing more enthusiasm with the extra gear.

Next out was Dodge the Draft (leased from Cricket Hill) who finished a respectable second in her allowance with a 171 SF.  Now looking for a similar race for her next start.

Having purchased both Levitation and Scarlet Secret in the Select Auction we were hopeful of a good showing from both but they could only manage 8th and 10th respectively behind stable companion Sailor Hat who joined us from a private auction for the grand sum of $1000 - typical  ::) Sailor's now made it two wins from two starts since he joined us and seems pretty verstaile having won on dirt and turf this season at 6.5f, 9f and 16f. Hopefully better luck for the other boys next time.

Only one performace to note today with Mollycoddle breaking her maiden at the 26th attempt and earning a nice 191 speed figure in the process  :D Very pleased with her today as we were hoping for a win to justify sending her to the paddocks and the slight tweaking of equipment sems to have helped. Hopefully onwards and upwards now.

Sent out six and five finished in the money.

Most notable performances came from the 2yos with Dawn Chorus gaining her first win. She's had 11 starts now and will be rested for a while.

Dragon's Legend is also still a maiden but finished a good 2nd today and earned his best ever speed figure so seems to be gradually improving.

Could anyone offer a resting place for a 3yo filly. Energy langushing on F so she could do with a break. Can return the favour in England at any time if needed.

Reasonable day today.

Highland Hero won his SC allowance over 7f.

Dawn Chorus picked up another second in a 2yo maiden.

Sailor Hat finished 4th in his allowance.

Questions / Deceased Mare
« on: July 19, 2010, 07:50:28 pm »
I noticed one of the mares in the mixed auction passed away on the day before the auction started. In a way a good thing as nobody bid on her but what I'm curious about is having looked at the FAQs horses tend to die from age of 15 onwards. The mare in question (Preppy Indian) was born 2003 so she's only 11. Is there any reason specifically why she might have gone early so to speak? I know it's not particularly important but I'm a bit puzzled  ???

Foaling Barn / Generous Bloodstock 2014 foals
« on: July 05, 2010, 09:03:18 am »
Very excited to see our first ever foal arrive today! Technically bred by Final Furlong as mum was purchased in foal at the mixed auction last year but still glad to introduce

Smitten Kitten

Alley Cat x Burnitup

Dark grey colt standing at 9.1hh

Burnitup has had one foal to race so far, 3yo Traviko who's a winner and multiple placed. She has a booking approved for Spock but I'm not sure if she's going to make it as she decided to keep her legs crossed for longer than I'd hoped for  :(  if not she'll be rested ready for an earlier covering next year.

1 down, 2 to go

Wow, what a day! Sent out  three and the ponies didn't let us down.

Consistent 2yo Cat's Joy finished a respectable third and picked up another little paycheck. He's yet to win but tries hard, hopefully it won't be long.

Mayhem returned from a little break to take 1st in her NW3 allowance. She's certainly been a great starter horse.

The decision to run Just Like Ice in the G1 Nassau Stakes paid off as she took the hounours becoming our first champion and first stakes winner  ;D Not bad for a $5000 claim earlier in the year.

Well, all in all not a bad day. Sent out six and they all came back with paychecks.

Coldenoughforsnow couldn't follow up her win last time out and finished 5th in allowance company. She might have one or two more starts in lesser company before going back to the farm

Ran two fillies in an NW1 SC Mollycoddle and Ice Tiger and they finished 2nd and 3rd respectively. Mollycoddle's just come back from a 3 month break so is entitled to be a bit rusty and Ice Tiger was having her first try over obstacles after an up and down season so quite happy with both their performances today.

We then had three of our purchases from the 2yo auction make their debuts with Dragons Legend finishing 4th in an NW2, User Friendly taking 2nd in a fillies maiden and Lethal Evil winning his maiden first time out. Fingers crossed they can all go forward from here.

Four out today, two finished in the money.

Cat's Joy finished 4th in his maiden on dirt. Time to try some equipment.

Coldenoughforsnow bounced back from a poor showing in Ireland to break her maiden at her first attempt on dirt so quite pleased with that.

Well, you wait weeks for a winner and then you get one two weeks running  :)

Highland Hero completely surprised us by winning a starter allowance steeplechase after disappointing in his last few races. I don't know if it was a change of track, shifting from Aqueduct to Belmont, or the fact that he hasn't raced for a while but really seemed to enjoy himself today.

Lachlan Steven and Cat's Joy picked up a bit of prizemoney finishing 4th and 5th in their respective races. Mayhem finished a disappointing 9th in an ungraded stakes but this level's probably a bit beyond her at the moment so back to the farm for a rest.

Only one out today and Mayhem finally gave us a winner  ;D It's been ages but she seemed to appreciate the slight drop in trip following her second place last week. Fingers crossed the good form continues.

Much better day today  :)

Sent out Mayhem who was stepping up in trip to 9f. After disappointing on her last few starts at around the 7f mark we thought we'd try stepping up - nothing ventured nothing gained - and she finished a good three length second so hopefully this will give her a few more options now.

Also claimed Full Moon Rising who won his race to get his first win in three starts, already placed in both previous starts. So fingers crossed there's more fun to be had with this boy  :)
