Cricket Hill 2017 Foals
« on: January 02, 2013, 02:16:23 am »
Well, we started with a bang this year. Four foals on the first!

Barbarossa(Octagonal (B) x Ch. Early Valentine by The Black)
9.0hh Chestnut Colt

Second foal out of a stakes winning dam.Early Valentine is out of Black Swan, making her half siblings with WCh. Strike It Rich and GCh. Endless Flight and GCh. Swan Song. High hopes for this colt.

Gossip Rag (FFCh. Takemetohollywood (B) x NCh. Guess What  (S) by Cigar)
8.0hh Dark Bay Filly

Guess What is a multi-stakes winning millionairess in her own right who has produced SP Rumplestiltskin. What makes us really excited about this foal is that we know Kermit has already crossed quite successfully with the Demand to Know line (Toast of the Town) so we're optimistic that this foal will be just as successful.

Not Another Word (ICh. Blue Smoke x Ch. Notanotherhighland (S) by NCh. Highland Wizard)
8.0hh Bay Filly

Filly is 1/2 to two SPed foals Ch. Timbuktu and That's Not My Point. Notanotherhighland's foals seem to mature a touch early, so we're hoping that Blue Smoke can add some longevity. Not Another Word is from Blue Smoke's first crop.

Repair Order (NCh. Dark Demand x Broken-Down Nag)
8.3h Chestnut Filly

This filly is from the 3rd crop of both her sire and dam. Dam ran well as a 4yo and 5yo, so hopefully this mare will have a long peak period. She 's 1/2 to Hopefully that starts this year and Niger Delta.

Another four today. Looks like the fillies are getting an early lead this year.
Aziraphale (FFCh. I'm No Fool x GCh. Go For Glory (P) by Lonesome Glory)
9.2hh Bay Colt

Really happy that we got a live foal out of this cross. GFG is the dam of ICh. Demand the Best, ICh. Toast of the Town and Ch. Initforthelonghaul. He's also tied for first born of INF's first crop. Aziraphale is the name of a character in the book Good Omens.

Fire in the Sky (NCh. Call to War x GCh. Firmament (S) by Affirmed)
9.2hh Chestnut Filly

Fourth foal of her dam, with 1 foal to race. Fire is 1/2 to SW Pie in the Sky (c. All Jazzed Up) and from the Sunset Beach female dam line. From Call of War's 3rd crop.

Morocco(ICh. Dark Continent (B) x Ch. Amazon (S) by Crimson Lad)
8.0hh Bay Filly

1/2 sister to Ch. Amazonian Spirit.

Labor of Love (ICh. Demand the Best x Ch. Lonely River by Irish River)
9.0hh Chestnut Filly

We were really happy to see a live foal this year from Lonely River after losing her foal last year. Longevity, his first foal, will hit the track this year.

LOVE Aziraphale! Actually I love all the names, but he's a hunk. Morocco is also quite pretty. Congrats on some healthy kids!
