Not at all bad! a lot of these were pretty much thrown in because they hadn't raced in a while and hadn't shown much promise. Pleased with my stakes entries as they all brought home a pay cheque and especially In No Time as that was a "just throw in and keep fingers crossed!"

Horses For Sale / Darkwood Stable Auction
« on: March 23, 2018, 03:59:51 pm »
I don't have enough time for all my horses so I have decided to bite the bullet and have a sale. Many of my horses only get raced 2 or 3 times a year so I don't get to figure out what conditions/equipment etc. they like. The majority of the sale horses are young enough that they could make decent racers given the right handling and some of the mares may make broodmare prospects. This is my first pass through my stable. I have some not raced this year that I want to try out because I like their breeding. They may also go into the sales anyway. I sort of want to reset my stable and have the time to campaign them more thoughtfully instead of tossing them into the next available race and being disappointed if they fail. Any that don't sell will be retired and there are no reserves.
 Sale starts 16 April.

General/Questions / RIP Wild Higland
« on: August 03, 2017, 11:38:36 am »
Sad to report the loss of one of Darkwood's best broodmares.  Wild Highland (Highland Rogue x Walkonthewildside) was retired in april after a difficult foaling.  She lived out her final days in the old apple orchard but never really recovered. The vet says it was natural causes. she leaves behind 13 foals including 6 x SW, of which 3 x MSW - Ch. Night of Storms, Ch. Wild Starz (millionaire) and Ch. I'm A Wild One.
