How'd You Do? 2022
« on: December 09, 2018, 04:19:16 pm »
Not too bad! All my top choices quickly went out of price range but still collected a few I had noted. In all, spent 30k for 5 horses.

Christmas Past, dk. gray weanling by NCh. Howarts (B) out of Mountain Air (B). Likely a late bloomer, as her dam didn't race until 3 and her sire hit his best at 4. Half to Ch. Breathtaking View, and dam is half to NCh. Silver Wizard, Ch. A.P. Silver Stars, Ch. Wingsonmyhooves, and gold-ranked Cool Breeze. Bought for 1k.

Duckwater, b. weanling by WCh. Sponsored out of Sea Acoral Image (S). I liked the Nightfight/Seabiscuit combo. Half to MSW Ch. Sea Acoral Starz. Bought for 1k.

Fightinthestreets, b. weanling by NCh. Space Chips out of Mason Dixon Line (S). Half to G1W Ch. Storm Cloud out of a SW/MSP mare. I usually have good luck with horses out of created mares, and with Nightfight turning into an excellent broodmare sire I have similar hope for his sons at stud. Most expensive at $25,500.

Reckoning, blk. weanling by ICh. To Die For (B) out of Strategic (B). Dam was never worse than 4th at 2, and has produced 50% winners including a SP despite almost all her racing foals being FF owned or inactive for the past year. Dam is half to platinum mares GCh. Keep the Kitty and GCh. Firefoot. Bought for 1k.

Storm Veil, dk. gray yearling by GCh. Simply Heroic (B) out of Storm Fan (S). I quickly lost out on her weanling half-sister, but hoping this girl makes up for it! Dam was a G1 winner, set a speed record, and was MSP. Half to MSW Ch. Good Hillside and SP Simple Frost. Her 2 unplaced foals are both FF owned with just 1 start each at age 4 and 6, so I consider them toss-outs. Bought for $1,500.

Didn't even realize I had purchased mostly weanlings until this post.
