General/Questions / Re: 2022 Foals
« on: Today at 12:37:08 AM »
We have a staggering 104 mares, with 18 being leased, 17 are not in foal, and 1-2 more are expected to retire from the track. This is Yes It's Paddy's final crop and we're expecting 7 foals. Some of those expectant mares include a half-sister to Nightfight and Gotta Go, the dam of MSW Ch. Cherries Jubilee and SW Ch. Get the Axe, a MW daughter of Akhetnaten (who is proving to be a very nice damsire), and silver-ranked Voodoo Cocktail.

I don't want to list all the foals I'm excited for, as I don't want to jinx anything, but I am excited for the first foal out of the only half-sister to I'm Your Angel. Also excited for our first foals by American Pharaoh, Frosted, and Curlin. Fingers crossed for a safe foaling by 17yo gold-ranked Colors Waving, whom we acquired from the Color War awards this year.

My goal is to have less than 100 mares, but really I should be around 60-70 foals/year max. Failing.  :P

General/Questions / Re: December Stallion Spotlight II: Strike It Rich
« on: December 15, 2017, 12:49:34 PM »
Thanks for the awesome writeup! Apologies to everyone; we WILL be focusing on member-owned stallions for the next year probably. We chose two at random then realized both were FF owned after these had been compiled.

I can't boast about any foals myself, as I only own a 4yo mare and a weanling at this time. The 4yo is extremely lightly raced, but was 2 for 2 at two and hit the board 2/3 times at three. I plan on sending Chartres Blue to him next year. Partly because she's already at FF and partly because he's a nice, solid sire. Both did well going long distance, so I'm hoping for a classic/endurance runner. And maybe, just maybe, I'll get my favorite strawberry roan color from the mating, haha.

General/Questions / 2022 Foals
« on: December 14, 2017, 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.  ;)

Hey Shanthi, I know we're nearing the holidays so everyone is CRAZY BUSY (I know my workload has exploded, being year-end) but curious if there will be a chance at Famous stallion voting for 2022?
