General/Questions / Re: 2yo's for 2022
« on: April 17, 2018, 12:10:58 am »
Pele's 2 already?! Time flies.

I know! With my luck, she'll be terrible. I sat on that name for a long time.

92 2yos?!?! I don't even that many actual racehorses! Good luck, that makes my head spin :)
I honestly don't recommend it. I've been trying to sell racehorses off -- I have over 200 that I need to sort out -- but I have a really hard time letting horses go. And benign neglect doesn't really make them go away.

General/Questions / Re: 2yo's for 2022
« on: April 12, 2018, 03:29:31 am »
Hmm... seems like I didn't participate last year. Whoops!

This is an exciting year because FFCh. Black Cherry's and ICh. City Upon a Hill's foals hit the track. This is also High Chance's last crop to start -- so bittersweet in that respect.

With 92 2yos this year we have a lot to choose from.

As the Crow Flies (Blue Smoke x Ask Directions) is the 2nd foal to race of GCh. Ask Directions. Her dam, Ask DNA, has been a dynamo in the breeding shed and we're hoping her daughter is the same. 3yo Let Me Be Frank (by Frankel) had a solid year as a 2yo, but seems to be struggling this year. I've been pleased with Blue Smoke as a sire, and I'm excited to have another foal by him to play with.

Billy Big Rigger (Away the Lads x Initforthelonghaul) is the third foal out of Initiforthelonghaul. 1/2 Sibs Trucker King and Haul Me Away have not performed up to expectations given their dam's pedigree (daughter of Go For Glory), but I really love the name on this one.

Chosen (To Die For x ICh. Jester's Crown) is the first foal to race out of a millionaire dam.

Cthulhu (Quarren x Toast of the Town) is the 2nd foal out of millionaire dam. Crown Fire, his only sibling to race, is stakes placed.

Dayton Accords (Long Live the King x Daytona Beach) is the 3rd foal out of a millionaire dam. Half to stakes-placed Stranger Danger.

Dreams for Sale (High Chances x Perchance to Dream) is a sentimental favorite. Full sibling to Anarchy, whom I owned as a 5yo and was from HC's first crop. I always wanted to see what he could've done during his peak years. With Dreams For Sale I get a chance.

Laird Plateau (City Upon a Hill x Laird's Own) is from City's from crop and the first foal of his NCh. dam.

Love is Kind (City Upon a Hill x Bandit's Love) -- Bandit's Love and Laird's Own raced together for me and would often go out in the same race. I'm really pleased that I (unintentionally) bred them to the same sire the same year. I'd be thrilled if their daughters did the same. (Makes race planning easy.)

Loving v. Virginia (Bernardini x Guilty of Love) -- I love the name and he's got none of the major bloodlines that I have in my stable. Would love to get him studified.

Madame Pele (Quarren x Go For Glory) is the last foal that I own out of Go For Glory. She's 1/2 to ICh. Demand the Best, WCh. Toast of the Town, NCh. Thank Goodness,  GCh. Aziraphale, Ch. Initforthelonghaul and Ch. Meet Your Maker. The name is special to me because Madame Pele was my first "good" horse in another SIM racing game I played. I'm hoping that this incarnation will be just as scrappy as her namesake.

Pass the Buck (Von Lichtenstein x Passin' Sandi) is Sandi's last foal. All his other siblings (all boys,sigh!) are stakes winners or better -- Ch. Don't Pass Go, GCh. It's a Long Story, and Ch. Akamai.  I'm hoping one of them will get studified at some point.

Perseids (See the Stars x Chance of Rain) is Chance of Rain's second foal. I'm glad I managed to snag a breeding to Sea the Stars before he retired.

That’s most likely because you used to need 10 SW to qualify for studship.

Could I have 2 slots to each of your boys? The earlier, the better.

I've booked Dark Miss to Exit Poll for March (I saw he had an opening), so I'd only need 1 slot with him. Love me some Irish River. :-)

Thanks!

Works for me. :-)
