How'd You Do? / 05/01
« on: May 01, 2013, 01:12:43 pm »
A nice way to start the new month after our last 2-3 horrible race days.

Armageddon (Stagehand) continues to be consistent with a 2nd/10 in his NW2.
Temple Maid (Worth My Wait) was 2nd/6 in her NW3.

Recently acquired Hypnotic (Must Be Magic) finished 3rd/6 in his NW3. We picked him up from the KindleHope Farms auction.

Our only also-ran was Devil's Advocate (Crystal Rainbow; 5th/6) in the same race as Temple Maid.

Comments and Suggestions / Breeding Page Suggestion
« on: April 26, 2013, 04:24:25 pm »
I was wondering if there is a way to (or even an interest in) adding a "location" feature to the breeding page? This way while planning breedings owners can see every stallion standing in Australia, Canada, Kentucky, ect. I keep just 1-2 mares in Australia so I can bring in some new blood without needing to pay a whopping 20k+ on shipping plus the stud fees, and I always have to go to the Stable List page and use ctrl + F for Australia farms then see which farms own stallions. I think a location listing, even if just by country/state, could help when prioritizing stallions.

Lost a claim, should have resisted the stakes gamble, and I'm super excited over a 2yo!

Stressful Reality (2yo, Stressed) made it 2 for 2 with a 1st/14 in his NW1!
Greatkingsofmen (Highland Laird) is now 3 for 4 this year with a 1st/6 in his NW3.

Dandywine (Highland Bandit) was 4th/9 in his NW1.
Breakfast in Bed (Harvard Bound) was 4th/6 in his NW3.

Also-rans: Raspberry Kisses (2yo; 11th/12, NW2), Espionage (2yo; 12th/14, NW2), A Knight's Tale (7th/10 G3).

Questions / 2017 Color War?
« on: March 06, 2013, 07:55:10 pm »
I know they're not hosted every year (ie there was a gap between 2013 and 2016) but I was wondering if there are any plans for a 2017 running? I love CW's, so I thought I'd ask!

How'd You Do? / 3/6
« on: March 06, 2013, 01:13:01 pm »
Sent out 7 and 4 hit the top 3! Two bombed so we gelded one and threw the other into the upcoming auction.

Nindalf finished 1st/6 in his OA; he seems to like SC under 10f. Stablemate Vuela Vuela was 2nd.

Macau ran 2nd/14 in his NW2. Glad I decided to keep him rather than sell.

Magickal Rites was 3rd/9 in her OA. She's still trucking along at age 6, having hit the board 3 of 4 times this year with 2 wins.

Those we thought would do well flunked, and those we thought would flunk brought home some manner of money. Just one of those days.

Candied Roses was 1st/6 in a 25k claimer and stays home; stablemate Bandwagon was 3rd and also stays home.

Rock Stardom ran 3rd/12 in his OA.

An AWESOME day for us! 9 of 12 hit the board. I'll take earnings over foals, I suppose (dang mares are keeping those legs crossed).

Breakfast in Bed made his SC debut a winning one with a 1st/11 in his Maiden. Stablemate Dandywine, also making his SC debut, was 4th.
Nindalf also debuted a winner in SC, running 1st/8 in his NW1. Stablemate Vuela Vuela was 4th.

To Alaska was 2nd/8 in his OA.
Hot Nurse keeps trucking with a 2nd/8 in her OA.

Glorioso ran 3rd/5 in his OA.

Bandwagon was 4th/6 in his NW2.
Magic Lable ran 4th/8 and was successfully claimed by Chillendale. Good luck with her!

How'd You Do? / 1/26
« on: January 26, 2013, 02:03:24 pm »
More ouch. Sent out 11 and 4 hit the board. We claimed 1 horse and are done with claiming for a looong time (beyond entering claimers as I try and clear out the team a little more).

Our sole winner was our successful 10k claim, Magickal Rites (1st/6). She's 2 for 2 this year at age 6 and is a future broodmare prospect, being by Irish River (G) out of Lady in Leather (B) by Highland Laird (S).

Nindalf ran 2nd/6 in his SC debut.

Mountain Laurel was 3rd/6 in a NW3.
Armageddon was 3rd/7 in his maiden SC debut.

Lineage Questions / SC Studs
« on: January 13, 2013, 08:57:22 pm »
I'm looking for a stallion who did really well at SC or has thrown good SC foals for my leased mare, Ch. Kilburn Kate. Earlier the breeding, the better (and preferably stateside, NY studs even more preferred). Looking at fees under 20k and I'm always willing to look at unproven boys.
