HIGHLAND GONE, 9.2h dark bay colt
NCh. AndLikeThatHesGone x Highland Flower - GCh. Highland Laird (S)
Our most overdue mare finally foaled at 20 days over. First foal for Highland Flower, who set 2 speed records at SC. Highland Flower is half to Rings of Saturn (silver), Fleur's Debate (gold), NCh. Nightshade (gold), and Indy Bride (silver). She will visit French Ruby for 2023.

Oh that I've known. I had a February mare already drop two weeks ago, and last year I had a mare 5 weeks late. Just didn't know about the colts vs. fillies.

PINK CHAMPAGNE, 9.1h black filly
NCh. Too Stressful x Ellenai - ICh. What's Your Point
I was a little nervous when Ellenai ran late (12 days total), being a maiden mare, but all was fine! Ellenai is half to SW Grandiose Castle and SP's Ch. Saramenha and Rocinante. She will visit Blue Smoke for 2023.

On average, yes. No idea how it exactly works IRL but in-game the due date is skewed earlier for fillies and later for colts. (Given horses and their unpredictability, that's probably close to real life, actually. ;))

Did not know! Explains a few things, for sure...minus my latest late baby. Who is also a filly, haha.

Congrats on the healthy filly!

Do colts tend to incubate more?

Yes, "any grade" means "is it a stakes race?". Ungraded stakes races are still stakes races, so they count.

I'm so happy.

How'd You Do? / Re: 1/20

Did pick up a new pony, continuing the Crystal Rainbow desire. Syvar is a 3yo colt out of MSW She Will Fly. We also own his big sister by Irish Gold.

Good luck with him! Maybe you can work your magic, because he didn't much care for me.

Overall I'm disappointed in you, ponies. Why do I even feed you?

PUPPET SHOW, 9.0h dark bay colt
GCh. Venture His Due x Mystic Love (B) - NCh. Fleet Street (G)
Only 2 weeks late...actually surprised he's not bigger with that much extra incubation + his dam is 17.2. Maybe he'll have a late growth spurt! Mostly unproven damline, but I like Fleet Street as the damsire. Mystic Love was bred on a lease.

Anything Goes / Re: Pegasus World Cup 2018 (Jan. 27)
« on: January 19, 2018, 02:53:27 pm »
I personally find the Pegasus to be a glorified Allowance race since it's more about the money than the field but I'm excited to see Stellar Wind and Gun Runner square off. I sort of wish it was later in the year to keep older horses around longer.

I will be watching nonetheless.

Love the name, and great seeing a half-brother to Love Chicken (who occasionally decides to run well in stakes races).

FINALLY. A week later on waiting for half a dozen late mares to foal and at least someone came through. The others...well.

WILD ARUM, 9.0h chestnut filly
NCh. French Ruby x Ch. Wild Countess - Count Fleet (S)
Originally due January 4th, Wild Arum is the second foal for her MSW dam. On the track she won 280k and set 2 SC speed records, so this little girl is definitely bred for a 3yo+ SC career! Wild Countess is half to GCh. Hearts Are Wild and Wild Highland (dam of 2 MSW producing daughters). Wild Countess will visit Quintet next.
