Hi Shanthi,

We have too many horses and are having trouble managing their training as well as finding races for all of them.

As a result, we will be having a late season Auction, starting on Sept 26th.

Only a few of them have Reserves ($5k).

Have a look and hopefully you'll find something you like.

Successfully claimed Fivel (2yo, Foolhardy) in a claiming race (10k!). He's out of a champion Nightfight mare. Extremely excited to have him on board.

Congratulations Shelbie. I had also put in a claim for him so am jealous.

Congratulations Alyssa,

I'm glad to hear that the wedding plans worked out so well. Even though your mom wasn't there in body, you can bet that she was involved in arranging everything (you know what moms and their daughters weddings are like!!!)

Stallion Advertising / Re: Ivy Creek Stud Lineup - 2021
« on: May 18, 2017, 04:35:05 AM »
Hi Alyssa,

American Dance has a June 1 booking to Bellagio, however, as she foaled late, she has missed that date. Does he have an opening for June 2 or should I look around for another Stallion? Do any of your other Stallions have a June 2 opening?

Thanks.

Lewis

Lewis - thanks for that, renamed the relevant ponies and fixed the typo for the naming robot.

Thanks. That makes a lot more sense now.

We selected 6 but lost one pretty early as it went to the maximum bid fairly quickly. Were successful with the others though, Selection of the first three were influenced by the fact that their sires were/are Starfish stallions:-

Precious Event (GCh. Tottenham Hotspur x Sugar High) - selected her because both sire and dam were Silver ranked - $15.5k.

Blushing Credit (ICh. First Born Son x Ch. Can't Buy Justice) - $1k.

Silky Chum (ICh. Magic Glory x Vixen) - $1k.

Capircious Clover (FFCh. High Chances x Brazen Success) - selected because of his sire - $1k. [Shanthi - I don't suppose you would be willing to change his first name? I suspect that the name was mispelled and should be Capricious Clover, although, as it was a FF bred horse, I guess that the name was selected by the naming robot - can't find any definition of Capircious though].

Jaded Prodigy (Ch. Mr. Townsend x Take Your Chances) - the dam is a daughter of one of our broodmares, silver ranked Thinking of Dreams - $1k.

Have our eye on one more if it is still available when the limit increases.

Anything Goes / Re: Kentucky Derby 2017
« on: May 08, 2017, 09:28:38 PM »
I made a comment to my sister-in-law when the horses came out onto the track about how awful the track looked and that I felt sorry for the come-from-behind horses.

Always Dreaming, who was up front pretty much from the start, finished looking almost as clean as he started out whereas virtually all the other horses and jockeys came back covered from head to foot in mud.

The joys of running on dirt (or, in this case, mud).

I'm glad that Thunder Snow seems to have come back OK and don't blame him for not wanting to race in that mud. I sure as heck wouldn't have wanted to go out in it!!!

Congratulations Lewis for the Derby win! Although I'm not surprised ;)

Thanks Hilda. I was very pleasantly surprised, although I thought that Ch. Fool To Be Smokin' had the better chance out of our three runners.

34(20)-5(1)-2(1)-4(1)-5(3) $1,661,050

It was great winning the Kentucky Derby and getting 4 other winners but the poor OTB % ( less than 50%) indicates that we still have way too many horses in our Stable (351 racehorses alone) and can't dedicate enough time to all of them. We will probably look into doing another clearance Auction in the summer and whichever horses don't sell in the Auction will probably be Retired,

One nice thing is that our 2YO's seem to be more forward than in previous years. We haven't had a ton of 2YO winners (3) but our 2YO OTB% so far is over 70%. It is also nice to see one of our new young Stallions, NCh. Worthy Victor doing so well with his first crop. He has already had 4 winners out of 11 runners.

Wins:
Ch. Secrets Squared (4yo, Secretsarebound) in an Allowance
Ch. Wonder Woman (5yo, Black Warrior) in an Allowance
Ch. Miracle Flight (5yo, Major's Flight) in an Allowance
Dancing Rumor (2yo, Rumor Has It) in an Allowance
Ch. Power of Secrets (3yo, Mantle of Power) in the Kentucky Derby (Gr. 1)

Places:
Weapon (2yo, Lucky Streak) in a NW2 Allowance
Ch. Mae West (4yo, Mantle of Power) in the Tattersalls Gold Cup (Gr. 1)

Shows:
Naval Dawn (2yo, In The Navy) in a NW3 Allowance
Ch. Matching Strides (4yo, Strider) in a NW3 Allowance
Arc de Triomphe (2yo, French Ruby) in an Allowance
GCh. Epiphany (4yo, Blue Smoke) in the Tattersalls Gold Cup (Gr. 1)

Fourths:
Tottenham are Back (3yo, Tottenham Hotspur) in an Allowance
GCh. Flaming Text (5yo, Golden Text) in an Allowance
Ch. Tau Alpha C (5yo, Spock) in the Citgo Distaff Turf Mile (Gr. 3)
GCh. Footloose (4yo, Foolhardy) in the Woodford Reserve Turf Classic (Gr. 1)
Ch. 1961 Double Team (4yo, Tottenham Hotspur) in the Humana Distaff (Gr. 1)
