Horses For Sale / Black Storm Youngstock
« on: September 20, 2011, 06:06:19 pm »
Originally we had several yearlings/weanlings consigned to the youngstock auction, but due to expenses and some horses not running as well as I'd like, they've been moved up to their own auction on October 4th. Included in the sale are half siblings to the stakes-placed 2yo's Pride Land and A.P. Goodyear, and the third foal out of a half-sister to Devil May Care. More to be added.

All have reserves.

Annual Select Auction / How'd You Do 2015
« on: September 11, 2011, 03:55:39 pm »
I definitely hadn't planned on spending this much, but I can't say I don't like the two I managed to get! I'm definitely spending as little as possible in the upcoming youngstock auction, since my current racing kids seem to be in no hurry to restore the bank a little.

I had gone into the auction thinking, "No youngstock!" and ended up bidding for a weanling. I had my heart set on Cream of the Crop, a Man O'War mare, but she went above and beyond my spending limits so when I saw she had a half-sister consigned, I went for her. Gimme a Latte, renamed to Cafelatte (name pending), is by Point Given (S) out of Cream Only (S). Cream Only has produced 5 winners from 6 runners, 3 champions, and her two producing foals are bronze and gold ranked. Picked Cafelatte up for $30,500.

The second horse we picked up was the broodmare Chief's Lady, who adds some new blood to our herd. She's by Chief Inspector (S) out of the Reine-de-Course mare Lady Be Good (S). Chief's Lady was a MSW of $521,000 and is currently bronze-ranked with 3 winners from 3 runners. She's in foal to Point Given and made the bank account lurch with a $100,000 purchase price.

How'd You Do? / 8/10
« on: August 10, 2011, 11:25:19 pm »
AWESOME day!  ;D Sent out 7 with 3 winners and 2 others hitting the board.

2yo
A.P. Goodyear (A.P. Indy) won her NW2 against 5 others.
Spirit of Autumn (Lasting Spirit) won his NW3 against 5 others.
Pepper Bomb (create) finished 4th/12 in his Maiden.
Gunningdownlove (Gunningdownromance) finished 2nd/6 in her 20k Claimer and was claimed by Golden Tabby Farm. Good luck with her!

Sheza Swan finished 6th/8 in her NW2. We might try SC with her.
Time to Shine finished 5th/9 in his Allowance. The turf was a failed experiment, so back to the dirt!
The highlight, by far, was Hot Nurse winning the G1 Lake Placid Handicap! I LOVE this mare!

Questions / Owner of Pregnant Mare's Foal
« on: July 28, 2011, 10:24:59 pm »
This is possibly a silly question that I already know the answer too, but there's no harm in double checking! I purchased a pregnant mare from the Railbird auction: will the foal go to FF or will it be under my name since Railbird is gone? (I'm presuming FF).

How'd You Do? / 7/6
« on: July 06, 2011, 11:22:06 pm »
An AWESOME day! I don't think we've ever had such a great run. Sent out 9 with 3 winners and another 3 on the board.

2yo's
Surroundsound Love (Double Cross) finished 6th/8. She definitely needs distance.
Pepper Bomb (create) was in over his head and ran 9th/12 in the G2 Sanford Stakes. Back to the Allowances he goes.
Daytona Weekend (A.P. Indy) was beaten by just a nose in the G2 Schuylerville against a field of 12. I'm so sending mares to Indy next year, haha.
THE HIGHLIGHT: Crack the Bell (Dark Continent) beat a SCARY, extremely talented field of 10 in the G1 Phoenix Stakes. She's already a champion, and just handed her sire his 3rd stakes winner (his 2nd having won the G2 Sanford today!).

Just purchased from the mixed auction, French Resistance won her NW3.
Time to Shine won his Open Allowance.
Glorioso and Passing Fancy ran 4th-14th/14 in their Open Allowance. Passing Fancy will be retired to broodmare duties next year.

Annual Mixed Auction / How'd You Do 2015
« on: July 03, 2011, 12:09:34 pm »
I expected there to be more rigorous bidding (I guess I'm just used to the Foal and 2yo Auctions, haha), so I bid on three with super low max bids with the promise that if I'm outbid on ANY, that's that. No trying to win the horse back, since I really don't need horses -- so much so that unless my ponies kick it up a notch, I'll be looking at another auction due to debt.  ::)

So, of course, I walk away with three for $1,000 each, and I have a bid on a really nice yearling I want. But at least at that cost, they should earn back their sale price!

The horse we really liked was French Resistance, a Man O'War filly out of a champion create mare who has produced 5 winners from 5 runners, including a MSW and SP. She hasn't raced since December but I'm a huge sucker for Man O'War and with her being only four, she has plenty of racing years ahead of her and makes for an excellent broodmare prospect.

Fatal Point was the second filly we picked up. She's by Point Given out of a champion Valid Wager mare who has produced 3 winners from 4 runners, and is a half-sister to 1 SW and 4 SP horses. She hasn't raced this year, but she was in the money 15/16 times last year. Hoping she hasn't lost a step.

Last up is Moonstorm, an Easy Goer colt out of a silver-ranked, champion Highland Rouge mare. He's had a so-so career so far but he's also only 3, so I'm hoping his lines indicate "better with age." He's half to two champions, and 3/4 to another.

How did everyone else do?

How'd You Do? / 6/08
« on: June 09, 2011, 12:38:50 am »
An EXCELLENT day for my crew!  ;D Sent out 10, 7 returned with checks (including a stakes place!).

2yo's
St. Elmo's Fire (War Chant) was 2nd/11 in his Maiden.
Spirit of Autumn (Lasting Spirit) ran 6th/14. He might be a late bloomer.

Time to Shine was 7th/13 in his NW3. After gelding him, we hope that'll focus him just a little more.
Blue Velvet and Sun Godess ran 1st-3rd out of 14 in their NW3 allowance. We're also super happy since this was Blue Velvet's first race with us!
Cherry Cheesecake ran 2nd/6 in her Allowance.
Tiz a Damsel was 3rd/9 in her NW2.
Hot Nurse made her stakes debut with us in the G3 Just A Game Breeders' Cup and ran 3rd/14!
Scrambled Egg ran 8th/10 in the Ungr. Cesarewitch Handicap. We'll find him an Allowance race and shorten him back up.
Rocket Smoke ran 5th/10 in the G1 Belmont Stakes. It was definitely too long for him, so back to the mile-ish races!
