General/Questions / 2022 Foals
« on: Yesterday at 05:08:23 PM »
I am getting stupidly excited for the next batch of foals! This is my biggest crop ever (about 85) with 21 due in January alone. I will try and lease just ONE mare next year, as that was pre-arranged haha. This will unexpectedly be the final crop for Yes It's Paddy, so fingers crossed all foalings are successful. How is everyone else looking with their upcoming crop? Just trying to reboot the forum chatter.  ;)

General/Questions / December Stallion Spotlight I: Dark Continent
« on: December 01, 2017, 02:06:25 PM »
Stallion Spotlight I: December

ICh. Dark Continent
2006 chestnut Thoroughbred stallion, 15.0hh
Land Ho (S) – Dark Victory (P)
[view]


CAREER
To begin the reboot of FF’s Stallion Spotlight, I’ve decided to turn everyone’s attention to one of our senior-most stallions who has arguably been one of the best bang for your buck for several years now. Bred by Final Furlong, Dark Continent won 14 of 72 lifetime starts with career earnings of $3,065,400. During a career span of 4 years, Dark Continent set 3 speed records with most of his victories coming at the classic distance on the turf, but performed well on all flat surfaces and distances. His G1 wins include back-to-back victories in the Lockinge Stakes, and a win in the Sussex Stakes; G1-placings include the Futurity Stakes, King George VI and Queen Elizabeth Stakes, and Dubai Duty Free. Dark Continent seemed to hit his best stride at age 3 and 4, earnings over $1 million each season. At three he hit the board 78% of the time, and 73% at four. He holds three speed records, all on the turf, between 8-9.5 furlongs.

LINEAGE
His sire, LAND HO, was a create who sired just 17 horses. All winners, three became stakes winners including MSW’s ICh. Dark Continent, Ch. Jamestown Lady, and single SW Warrior Princess. From his 9 daughters, 4 are silver-ranked, 4 bronze, and the ninth is currently unranked. A silver-ranked broodmare sire, his grandfoals include MSW’s NCh. Gaudy Night, Ch. Gowestyoungman, Ch. All Ablaze, and gold-ranked NCh. Set the Sails (dam of MSW’s GCh. Set the Stride and NCh. Nightwatchman).

His dam, DARK VICTORY, was a phenomenal broodmare producing all winners from 4 foals with 3 becoming millionaire MSW’s. One of those millionaires was ICh. V is for Victory, a silver-ranked sire of 6 MSW’s. Dark Victory did not leave behind any daughters.

SIRE RECORD
At the time of this post, he is Silver-ranked (3.0). Dark Continent has sired almost 250 foals from 9 crops with 61% starters, 79% winners, 12% stakes winners and 7% multiple stakes winners. Some of his highest-earning offspring are GCh. Ask Directions, Ch. Super Choice, Ch. Night Break, Ch. Jacksonian, and Ch. Ch. TheLaughofMedusa. Currently he is unranked as a broodmare sire, but of his two daughters with started offspring all 3 grandfoals are winners.

Out of 65 stallions w/ started offspring:
  • 2nd in highest winning percentage of offspring
  • 6th in offspring earnings
  • 6th in highest G1-placed offspring
  • 20th in G1-winning offspring

Leading Earners
  • CH. NIGHT BREAK ($1,879,250), G1 George Ryder Stakes, G1 Hong Kong Cup, G1 Nassua Stakes, etc.
  • GCH. ASK DIRECTIONS ($1,138,850), G1 Haydock Spring Cup, G1 Coronation Stakes, G3 Thoroughbred Club Stakes, etc.
  • GCH. COLD RAIN ($947,250), 2nd G1 Breeders' Cup Filly & Mare Sprint, G2 Riva Ridge Breeders' Cup, 3rd G1 Test Stakes, etc.
  • CH. SUPER CHOICE ($963,950), G1 Spectacular Bid Breeders' Stakes, G1 Wood Memorial, 2nd True North Breeders' Cup, etc.
  • CH. SCATTERED MERCURY ($651,550), G3 Asian Beau Stakes, 2nd G2 Sir Byrne Hart Stakes, 3rd G1 Breeders' Cup Turf Sprint, etc.
  • CH. THELAUGHOFMEDUSA ($525,400), G2 Davona Dale Stakes, G3 Skyline Stakes, etc.
  • CH. JACKSONIAN ($518,900), G1 Ascot Gold Cup, G2 Bristol Novices, G3 Greatwood Handicap, 3rd G1 Cheltenham Gold Cup, etc.

Foals for Thought
Between 17 foals, all either SW or MSW, 9 had their best career year at age 2 (53%), 4 at age 3 (26%), and 5 at age 4 or older (29%).

Breeding Suggestions: Matching successful line crosses via sire
  • Land Ho daughters have produced a MSW or SW from the following sire lines: Townsend Prince, Worth the Wait, Highland Laid, Must Be Magic, and What’s Debatable.

Breeding suggestions: Matching successful line crosses via dam
  • Dark Topaz only had four foals, with 3 being MSW’s including Dark Continent. Her two other MSW foals were by I’m a Classic and Jazz It Up.

Looking Elsewhere: V is for Victory
Without delving too deeply into V IS FOR VICTORY, as this spotlight is centered on Dark Continent, I do want to bring up additional suggested lines that did well with Dark Continent's half-brother. A son of Jazz It Up, V is for Victory produced MSW's from daughters of Seabiscuit, Lonesome Glory, Danzig, and created lines.

* * *
Dark Continent currently stands in Kentucky under FF ownership for $1500.
Being FF-owned he is not BC nominated, but he does not require approval to breed to.


Would love suggestions for January Spotlight in terms of what information would you also like to see, see more of, could have done without, etc.

General/Questions / Stallion Watch: Prospects
« on: November 11, 2017, 01:55:19 PM »
A thread for everyone to post their potential stallion prospects. There's no restrictions for who you can post or how often (please, brag!) but maybe wait until a few of the stallion qualifications are met so we're not posting about EVERY stakes win from all our colts, haha. A great place to also announce new stallions heading to the shed next year when breeding season is already over.

STALLION QUALIFICATIONS
 - Is the colt at least 4 years old?
 - Has he won at least 7 stakes races of any grade?
 - Has he won at least 1 Grade 1 stakes race?
 - Has he placed in the top 3 in at least 10 stakes races of any grade?
 - Has he placed in the top 3 in at least 2 Grade 1 races?

----

My watch list:
NEEDS 1 SW
GCh. Bracton, 7yo dkb. Rumor Has It x Lady of Honour (Romeo)
Needs 1 SW of any grade (won G1 Epsom Derby, G1 St. Leger, G1 Cox Plate).

NCh. Star of Wonder, 7yo b. Harvard Bound x Wonder's Miracle
Needs 1 SW of any grade (won G1 Coronation Cup)

NEEDS 2 SW'S
GCh. Counting Kisses, 5yo b. Count Me In x Never Been Kissed (No Duplicate)
Needs 2 SW's of any grade (won G1 Belmont Stakes)

St. Patrick's Day, 6yo blk. Black Warrior x Topaz (Omaha)
Needs 2 SW's, including a G1

NEEDS 3 SW's
GCh. Sandman, 5yo blk. Nightfight x Dream Time
Needs 3 SW's of any grade (won G1 Doomben Stakes).

Everyone is at home recharging. Hoping to begin training again end of December/early January to hit the stakes races at the start of the year. The older kids will be the trickiest, but again, hoping some epic juicing time at home + several weeks training = supercharged enough to land just that final stakes win (or two)!
