Title: RC Bee's 2021 Foals
Post by: Shirozora on January 03, 2017, 05:38:48 AM
First time we didn't have any New Year's Day babies and then had to wait one day longer before someone finally let go of her bun. Silly mares ::)

Kicking off the 2021 foaling season is 24 Karat Magic (http://www.finalfurlong.org/viewhorse.php?horse=37759), a beautiful black colt by Eighteen Karat-Super Tuesday, by Candidate. Decided to double up on What's It Worth since Super Tuesday's dam did quite well with Worth stallions. Tuesday's only running foal is a multiple stakes-placed winner.

... he is so obviously named for Bruno Mars' ridiculously catchy song.

Super Tuesday may or may not visit Space Chips for her next foal.

Wow, wow, wow!

In the wee hours, one of my favorite mares delivered one of our most anticipated foals. Horus (http://www.finalfurlong.org/viewhorse.php?horse=38039) is a beautiful black foal by freshman sire American Pharoah-Diamond Prospector, by Mr. Prospector. Ridiculously pleased with the color that came out of the color roulette and wondering a bit since three of the mare's four foals are black while their sires are bays. His dam has one foal to race, so far, the stakes-placed newly turned 3YO maiden filly Diamond In The Sky. Horus is her first colt.

Kind of surprised the name hadn't been taken given the many Egyptian-themed names running around the site.

Diamond Prospector is probably the one going to Space Chips for her next foal.

Thanks for the kind words!

The other day, a lovely bay filly decided to make her appearance. ISO (http://www.finalfurlong.org/viewhorse.php?horse=37758) is by Karat-Quorra, by No Duplicate. She is her dam's first foal and named for the type of program her mother's namesake was in the movie Tron: Legacy.

Haven't decided where Quorra is going next.

Since I won't be seeing another foal until the 27th, I might as well post that What's Honor lost her Dunaden foal. She's back in foal to him for the next year.

Didn't see your post, @willagrey, but thank you.


Hard Times lost her foal by Mantle of Power. Four more days before another mare is due to foal.

Hard Times was bought specifically for Karat so that's who she'll be going to for next year's foal.

I'll post to your thread a replacement mare for Mantle. Thank you.

Happy to report three healthy arrivals in the past two days.

Sanctuary City (http://www.finalfurlong.org/viewhorse.php?horse=38222) is a beautiful black filly by Blue Smoke-Flora Macdonald, by Point Given. I bought her in utero and am happy to get some different bloodlines in the barn. She is a great-granddaughter of the great Highland Raven.

Flora Macdonald has been bred back to Karat.


Summer Soldier (http://www.finalfurlong.org/viewhorse.php?horse=38635) is a brightbrightBRIGHT chestnut colt by Karat-Vishnu, by Irish River. He is the third foal from the cross (due to my laziness with mare matching and also because Karat is free to breed to lol) but it's a good cross - oldest sibling Arkenstone is a multiple-winning 3YO. They should improve with time and distance.

Vishnu will be visiting Calle de Oro for her next foal.


Golden Impala (http://www.finalfurlong.org/viewhorse.php?horse=38825) is a pretty dark bay colt by Karat-A.P. Impala, by A.P. Indy. A.P. Impala was one of my first homebreds and this is her first foal. No idea what to expect but hopefully it's good things.

No plans yet for A.P. Impala. I may put her up for lease. If interested, PM me.

A little late but we had two arrivals a few days ago.

Antifa (http://www.finalfurlong.org/viewhorse.php?horse=38823) is a beautiful dark grey colt by Hogsmeade-Fairy Wish, by Highland Wizard. He is her sixth colt from six live foals. When will she ever give me a filly?

Fairy Wish is booked to Lake Highlands but blew her covering date by a few so hoping to hear back about it.


The other new arrival is Eliza Schuyler (http://www.finalfurlong.org/viewhorse.php?horse=38636), a pretty dark bay filly by Player-Light Up Your Life, by Cigar. She's got a slew of haf-siblings but only one of them's won so far. Hopefully, Miss Eliza can change that. While she's named for a real life historical figure, I named her specifically because of the musical Hamilton.

Light Up Your Life's next mating hasn't been picked yet.

At last, another foal and another filly.

Evening Song (http://www.finalfurlong.org/viewhorse.php?horse=38498) is a BIG black filly by Karat-Enchanted Evening, by Highland Pride. Her name is a continuation of the word "Evening" found in the dam line. She's bred on the famed Worth/Rogue cross and one of Karat's two multiple stakes winners is also bred on the cross, so at least we're going in the right direction lol  She has a full brother who's a 2YO this year.

No breeding plans have been set for Enchanted Evening.

Sorry for being a constant Debbie Downer but it hasn't been a good foaling season for us.

Healthy foal, which I suppose is important. Political Actor (http://www.finalfurlong.org/viewhorse.php?horse=38607) is a strapping dark bay son of Player-A Time For War, by Man O'War. His name is a term used for individuals who wield decision-making power on the political stage.

Unfortunately A Time For War had foaling complications and the vet recommended retirement. We bought her specifically to breed to Karat but I guess it's not meant to be. Shame we couldn't get a filly either but what can you do.

P.S. If anyone has a cheap Man O'War mare to sell, I'd be happy to buy her.

Had two arrivals this past week. Lovely foals both.

Ships In The Night (http://www.finalfurlong.org/viewhorse.php?horse=39089) is a beautiful light bay filly by Naval Commander-Farewell to Arms, by Candidate. Quite a lot of in/line-breeding to Whats It Worth in her pedigree.

Farewell to Arms hasn't been bred back yet. We're still searching for a good stud for her.

The Hinterlands (http://www.finalfurlong.org/viewhorse.php?horse=38824) is a handsome bay son of Karat-Scotland's Glory, by Highland Laird. He is a full brother to 2YO Heart of Glory. The family is quite intense but since Glory's oldest is only 3, there's no verdict yet on how well she produces. Here's hoping it's "well".

Scotland's Glory has not been bred back yet.
