General/Questions / December Stallion Spotlight II: Strike It Rich
« on: December 14, 2017, 09:32:44 PM »
Stallion Spotlight: December

WCh. Strike It Rich
2006 chestnut Thoroughbred stallion, 17.2hh
Strike The Gold (G) – Black Swan (G)
[view]


CAREER
Our second Stallion Spotlight for this month is silver ranked, Strike It Rich. At 15, he is one of the older stallions still around and only one of 6 whose first crop was in 2012 or earlier. Bred by Stillwater Farms and currently owned by FF, Strike it Rich won 17 of 59 lifetime starts, 16 of those stakes races, with career earnings of $2,780,400. During a career span of 3 years, Strike It Rich was most successful running sprint distance and didn’t seem to mind what his hooves were running on. He was untested over fences, but still had success at the classic distance and even won a stakes race over 10f.

His G1 wins include the Goodwood Handicap and the Omaha Breeders' Stakes; G1-placings include the Melair Stakes, Two Thousand Guineas, Goodwood Handicap, July Cup, Lighting Stakes, and Victoria Racing Club Stakes. Strike It Rich seemed to hit his best stride at age 3 and 4, earning over $1 million each season. At three he hit the board 70% of the time and at 4, he entered all stakes races, hitting the board 73%

He frequently ran against other future stallions such as Nightfight, What’s Your Point, The Fighting Fifty and Gotta Go and beat Count Me In, Prince of Wonder, Black Warrior, Chivalry, Candidate, and Dark Continent.

INJURY HISTORY
In his last year racing, Strike It Rich had 2 injuries: Heat (RF) in May and Overheating in September.

LINEAGE
His sire, STRIKE THE GOLD, by Alydar (S) and a created mare, sired just 17 horses. 6 became stakes winners including MSW Strike It Rich, MSW GCh. Striking Beauty, MSW Ch. Iglesias, SW Ch. Gold Fever, SW Ch. Gone to Dust, SW Stroke of Luck. From his 5 daughters, 2 are silver-ranked, 2 bronze, and one is currently unranked. A bronze-ranked broodmare sire, his grandfoals include MSW’s Ch. Catch Phrase, SW Showoff, SW Secsy Star, SW Ch. Canaryinacoalmine, and SW Ch. Su Vida Loca.

His dam, BLACK SWAN, was a black type broodmare, producing all winners from 12 foals with 6 stakes winners, 5 multi stakes winners including GCh. Endless Flight, Ch. Knight Errant, Ch. Dark Laird, GCh. Swan Song, and Strike is Rich, a millionaire MSW. Average earnings for her foals is $517,125. 6 of her daughters are now broodmares, with 1 gold-ranked, 1 bronze-ranked, and the rest unranked.


SIRE RECORD
At the time of this post, he is Silver-ranked (3.9). Strike It Rich has sired 222 foals from 10 crops with 44% starters, 64% winners, 16% stakes winners and 7% multiple stakes winners. Some of his highest-earning offspring are NCh. Billionaire, GCh. Boundless Train, Ch. Payday, GCh. Rich Belle, Ch. Flota de Indias, Ch. Platinum Edition, Ch. Putitonmyaccount

Currently he is unranked as a broodmare sire. Of his daughters with started offspring he has 1 stakes placed and 2 winners but most of his grand foals are yearlings and weanlings.

Out of 65 stallions w/ started offspring:
  • 17th in highest winning percentage of offspring
  • 13th in offspring earnings
  • 16th in highest G1-placed offspring
  • 7th in G1-winning offspring

Foals for Thought
Between 16 foals, all either SW or MSW, 9 had their best career year at age 2 (25%), 4 at age 3 (44%), and 5 at age 4 or older (31%).
His most successful foals have been mares by:
MSW - Abracadabra, Crimson Lad (x2), Secretary, Worth The Wait, Mr. Prospector, Rainbow Quest
SW - Sneak Peek, Planet Hollywood, Cross Roads, Moonover Boy, Highland Magic, Flash Image

Breeding Suggestions: Matching successful line crosses via sire
  • Strike the Gold daughters have produced a MSW or SW from the following sire lines: What’s It Worth, Akhetnaten, Rock of Gibraltar, High Chances, Ring of Fire, Devil His Due

Breeding suggestions: Matching successful line crosses via dam
  • Black Swan had 5 MSW by Alydar (Strike the Gold’s sire), Crimson Lad, Highland Laird, What’s It Worth and a SW by The Black
  • Black Knight broodmares have also produced SW & MSW from High Chances, Holy Bull, Bellagio (x2), Hidden Destiny, King David, Red Sunset, All Jazzed Up, Nightfight,   

* * *
Stike it Rich currently stands in Kentucky under FF ownership for $15,000.
Being FF-owned he is not BC nominated, but he does not require approval to breed to.

Starting next month Shelbie and I will feature non-FF owned studs. I had only noticed after I had already started this write up.

Please share your own foals and successful crosses below.

General/Questions / Breeding matches
« on: November 09, 2017, 01:07:42 AM »
So in light of Shelbie's "let's get the board more active" post, I'd like to pick people's brains about how they select which stallions to breed their mares to.

I'm a newbie, and while I did search the forums extensively in my research, I'm still not entirely sure what changes may or may not have been made. (Because impossible to keep up with those since this game started)

Right now, I've kind of been relying on what my broodmares have produced previously. So if they have a foal that was a winner/stakes winner/MSW/etc from a certain stud, I go there first. Sometimes that leads me to a dead end (retired stallion/no stud qualified offspring, etc), which leaves me with little ideas what to do.

One thing I did do for the mares I bred this year (for a 2022 foal) was look up mares from the same sire as my mare, and see what they well crossed with.

I don't expect deep dark breeding matching secrets to be revealed but some guidance would be amazing! I made a small spreadsheet of my mares and their racing preferences (if any) and if they had a SW/MSW by a certain stud. This has helped if I'm familiar some studs, but after buying 3 yearlings from Sunday Paper and finding out he's a later blooming SC guy, I obviously have a TON to learn LOL (Also, not complaining because I don't mind waiting with the 2yos but ahaha had I known, maybe I wouldn't have bought 3!)

Any tips?

Anything Goes / Kentucky Derby 2017
« on: May 05, 2017, 12:36:06 AM »
Anyone have any picks for the derby this year?

I watched Classic Empire in the BC juvenile, so I really like him, but I'm loving the one-eyed horse Patch, or Gunnerva as well.

Who's going to be watching??

Lineage Questions / Stallion suggestion
« on: March 28, 2017, 10:55:07 PM »
I need some stallion suggestions for my mare, Artemis (Worth the Wait x Lady O'War [Man O'War]. She excelled on dirt at the classic distance, and have multiple stakes placings, but her wins are at the allowance level.

Since I'm a newbie, I'm doing as much research as I can, but it can be super hard to remember which stallions excelled at what. Also, while I'm familiar with some lines, I'm not good at knowing what crosses well with a certain line.

I did some research regarding what crosses well with a Worth the Wait lined mare, and one stud stood out, Stressed, who of course happens to be by the same dam as Artemis. I looked at maybe Too Stressful, but idk how I feel about that.

Any suggestions would be appreciated! I'm hoping for a foal to do dirt races at the classic length, so studs who produce that or raced that would be great.

TIA

Foaling Barn / Denoux Stud - 2021 Foals
« on: January 10, 2017, 03:12:58 PM »
Excited for our small foal crop this year!

GONE SOUTH
NCh. AndLikeThatHesGone   x Ch. All Points North (S) [GCh. Major's Flight (G)]
9.2 Dark Bay Colt
All Points North was due 12/31 and Shelbie and I kept telling her to keep her legs closed. I think she took us too literally because she didn't foal until 1/7! Happy to have a healthy colt though! All Points North will be bred to Prince of Wonder for a 2022 foal.

1 Colts | 0 Fillies | 5 due
