Annual Foal Auction / 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, 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, 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, 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, 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, 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.

General/Questions / 2yo's for 2023
« on: November 30, 2018, 06:21:30 pm »
It's just about that time! I'm still wondering where the year went. My choices last year were a mixed bag this year, with most I'm hoping improve as 3yo's. Of the 7 I chose, only 3 have won but Flattery managed a 4th in the G1 Golden Slipper Stakes and has been on the board all year; Lancaster has been in the top 3 all year, and Voices' only flop this year was at the stakes level.

Instead, our best 2yo's this year have been September (Bellagio) who won an ungraded and was 3rd in the G1 Beach Shore Stakes, MG1P Sunstruck Flag, G3W Worth His Salt, and MSP Foolish Whispers.

Some picks for next year...

Heavy Sugar (Foolhardy x Cherry Cheesecake). From Foolhardy's final crop, she's out of a gold mare and half to MSW's Ch. Get the Axe and Ch. Cherries Jubilee.

Iberis (Belanso x Artemis). Half to 2yo MSW Ch. Gifted Detail. 2 of her 3 older sibs are FF owned and didn't start until 4 and 5, and her third older sibling only ran at 5 and 6, so there's a chance her family does well early and hasn't had the chance to prove themselves.

Lapageria (Worthy Victor x Filly from Chile). Half to MSW Ch. Color Run, SW Ch. Caleuche who won the BC Juv Turf, and SP Ch. Frost on Tap.

Wild Hunt (Long Live the King x Midnight Run). Half to MSW's Ch. Owl Hunt, Ch. Honeydukes, and SP Ch. Rosette.
