Title: 2yo's for 2022
Post by: Shelbie on October 29, 2017, 08:59:09 PM
Actually did fairly well with last year (http://www.finalfurlong.org/forum/index.php?topic=10146.0)'s choices. My choices last year: Caleuche (http://www.finalfurlong.org/viewhorse.php?horse=32315) is SP and entered in the BC Juvenile Turf, Downfall (http://www.finalfurlong.org/viewhorse.php?horse=31573) recently won an ungraded stakes and is entered in the BC Juvenile, Hard Candy (http://www.finalfurlong.org/viewhorse.php?horse=32744) is a multi-winner and ran 4th in an ungraded stakes, Jawbreaker (http://www.finalfurlong.org/viewhorse.php?horse=32624) just multi-placed and now at home for the rest of the year, Lingerie (http://www.finalfurlong.org/viewhorse.php?horse=32114) has won 3/4 starts including a G1 win and is entered in the BC Juvenile Fillies, and Lord of Misrule (http://www.finalfurlong.org/viewhorse.php?horse=31292) is a multi-winner and ran 4th in an ungraded stakes recently.

For 2022 I have my eyes on...

Cider (http://www.finalfurlong.org/viewhorse.php?horse=34931) (French Ruby x Midnight Return). Half to MSW Ch. Owl Hunt and MSP Ch. Rosette.

Draconian Love (http://www.finalfurlong.org/viewhorse.php?horse=35807) (Von Lichtenstein x June My Love). Sire has been doing fairly well with 41% winners and 1 SP in his first crop. Draconian Love is the first colt for my favorite mare, June My Love, who has produced all winners inluding SP Juniper Tree and G1W Lingerie.

Flattery (http://www.finalfurlong.org/viewhorse.php?horse=35681) (Mr. Prospective x Meant to Be). Half to 7 winners including 2 SW's and 4 SP's. From the final crop of gold-ranked Mr. Prospective. Meant to Be tends to throw early bloomers.

Kingsfoil (http://www.finalfurlong.org/viewhorse.php?horse=34965) (Worthy Victory x Coronet). Half to Lord of Misrule, a SW and 2 SP's. Worthy Victor has turned into an extremely nice sire already with a MSW and 4 SW's from his first crop -- including my own Hardy Candy mentioned above.

Lancaster (http://www.finalfurlong.org/viewhorse.php?horse=36046) (Unabridged x Cadbury). Oldest foal for his dam, so hard to say what he'll do but the damsire is Highland Wizard and Cadbury is half to MSW GCh. Prince of Thieves, 2 silver-ranked half-sisters and a third half-sister whose only racing foal is a SW. I've always had great luck with Unabridged foals.

Novacaine (http://www.finalfurlong.org/viewhorse.php?horse=34503) (TakeMeToHollywood x Hot Nurse). Second foal out of MSW/millionaire Hot Nurse, whose oldest foal has hit the board all 5 times this year at 2 (and not bad given the sire is my old boy Joyeux Oiseau, who admittedly wasn't the best). Bred on the same Sire/BM Sire cross as MSW's Ch. Spamalot and WCh. Toast of the Town.

Voices (http://www.finalfurlong.org/viewhorse.php?horse=35022) (Express Yourself x Quiet Silhouette). Half to 7 winners including 2 SW's and 1 SP, full sister to SW/MSP Ch. Ni Quito Ni Pongo. Gold-ranked sire.

I'm not sure what happened to my last year's post... but I am happy about the older guys. I keep Ch. Puede Que Haya (http://www.finalfurlong.org/viewhorse.php?horse=28595), who is the only one to continue her damline at Clicker Lab. La Chunga (http://www.finalfurlong.org/viewhorse.php?horse=28437) is still good as a 3yo although she didn't win even once this year... I'm not sure if created Meva Nit d'Estiu (http://www.finalfurlong.org/viewhorse.php?horse=32716) is any good, but I keep her because I like her name and looks :P
Of 2yo's, Crème Brûlée (http://www.finalfurlong.org/viewhorse.php?horse=31719) is stakes placed and he won once. The best one of them is Ch. Bong Bong Bong (http://www.finalfurlong.org/viewhorse.php?horse=32073), Mult. Stakes Winner including a Gr. 1 so I hope he gets stud qualified.
Next year will be first 2yo's by Al Mundhir racing, and I hope that Bohemian Rhapsody (http://www.finalfurlong.org/viewhorse.php?horse=34747) will do well. I also like Mymble (http://www.finalfurlong.org/viewhorse.php?horse=36232) (NCh. Away The Lads x GCh. Yeman / A.P. Indy), 3x3 inbred to Seattle Slew.
And we owe a lot of our success with 2yo's to Lewis of Starfish Stables, who leased some of them from Clicker Lab. Thanks again.

I didn't participate last year (at least I don't think I did), but I'm interested in having a reminder of who I was really watching come next year this time.

That said, I'm both looking forward to and dreading Mr. Prospective's last crop hitting the track.  I have a number of babies who will debut next year.  Here's hoping that one of the boys from his current 2yo crop or upcoming yearlings will go on to be studified. 

On a brighter note, Pay the Boatman's first crop will hit the track in 2018, so I'm very intrigued to see how they'll do.  Boatman was my first stud-qualified homebred, so it's a sentimental hope if nothing else!

As for specific kids, there are a few...

Sour Patch Kid is probably the most well bred and may turn out to be a complete flop because of it.  That's breeding for you!  He's from Foolhardy's last crop and out of platinum-ranked Cherry Flavoured (dam of FFCh. Black Cherry and several other Ch-ranked kids). 

Vivien Leigh, (named for the actress who played Scarlett O'Hara in Gone With the Wind) another pretty breeding, likely won't debut until she's 3.  She's bred for jumps with FFCh. TakeMeToHollywood as her sire, and our own 2-time award winner ICh. Date With Destiny as her dam.  Destiny has produced a stakes winner already, with her 3yo looking poised to follow suit.

Righteous Man is the first colt from platinum-ranked In Thy Name, who wasn't stellar on the track but certainly has been as a broodmare.  She's produced 4 stakes winners (3 MSWs) from 5 foals to race.  Righteous is half to NCh. Holy Warrior and GCh. When You Were Mine. 

Edelweiss is NCh. Von Lichtenstein x NCh. Highland Sage and 1/2 to a number of good horses, including award-winner NCh. Early Spring.  I have a stakes placed 2yo from the same sire, so perhaps lightning will strike twice!

It's pretty safe to say I'm looking forward to all of them racing, as more than a few tend to surprise me every year.

Here Comes Trouble (Foolhardy) is the only one of the six we highlighted last year to show any talent so far. She’s MSW, MSP. Most of 2yo are very lightly raced so hopefully they’ll improve into nice 3yos.

For 2020, we’re most excited about Quarren’s first crop and will be happy to see some winners for him next year, whether they’re ours or other stables’! He didn’t win a race until he was three though, so we’re hopeful rather than confident.

Most of our 2yo for next year that we’re most excited about are either late babies and/or out of mares that have traditionally produced late bloomers so these might be better as ‘3yos for 2021’!

Cherry Pie (Black Cherry x Question Authority). Half sister to Quarren, from BC’s first crop.

Kirsh (Black Cherry x Crowd Pleaser). Half to NCh King of Gondor.

Quaint (Quarren x NCh Fingerprints). Half to 1 MSW, 1 SW and 1 SP runner.

Quip (Quarren x Just A Fox). Half to WCh Sionnach and NCh Llwynog.

Svalbard (Foolhardy x Just Like Ice). Half to a MW (3yo) and winning 2yo. Dam is half sister to Sionnach, Llwynog etc and was a SW at 4.
