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

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.

Another good day!
The two winners were especially pleasing. Abscond was entered into a SC in error on her last outing and has won both that race and this one. A very happy accident. I thought Wild Night had lost interest or was past her best at the start of the year but seems to have regained her enthusiasm, to my pleasure.

Have recently realised how few of my horses are actually being entered in races. (probably because all the recent tempting auctions mean I have more horses than i intended!) So I made an effort to get more out on the track and this has been the result
Not bad for a change - I must do it again! Though my stakes results are still rubbish  :(

Two early babies!

Contrary Mary 10hh bay filly  - FFCh Foolhardy x Ch Mary Hill. Full sister to GCh. Fool on the Hill. Looking forward to seeing if she'll do as well as her sister.

Azurite 8.2hh Blue Roan colt - WCh Strider x Ch Sienna. Sienna's first foal. She was a dirt and classic distance racer and his sire favored the same so I'm hoping for a good mid distance prospect with this one.
