Annual Select Auction / Re: 2022 Annual Select Auction - How'd You Do?
« on: September 03, 2018, 08:24:43 pm »
I also decided to focus on good broodmares and youngstock. I feel compared to prior years I got away with murder in what I paid.

Nabbed top choice Wild Oats (Unnamed before, undecided on name), a Strike it Rich yearling out of Ch. Worth Her Oats (Gold, Reine-de-Course). Dam was MSW of over 500k, 4 speed records, and has produced 2 MSW's from 3 runners. I want to strengthen Strike it Rich's foals now that he's in the barn and felt she was a steal at 25k.

First of the nice broodmares to add to our herd is Ch. Seeking Sadler (Sadlers Wells x Seeking the Fire). G1W and MSP. She's already silver ranked with a SW and SP between two foals and comes in foal to Run Jenny Run. Picked up for 34k.

Ch. Cross Your Heart (Steal Your Heart x Cross My Heart). Mostly picked up for her damline, as she's half to As You Wish and several stakes producers, and her dam is half to my mare, Passing Fancy (Gold, 3 SW's from 4 runners/winners). She's MSP with 1 foal, a 2yo, who is FF-owned/campaigned. Purchased for 25k.

Only Wonder (Prince of Wonder x Only Ask). Unraced in 2 years, but a big mahogany bay, MSP, has hit the board 6/8 times. She's only five so hoping a few months at the farm will give her a nice breather to race a few more times being joining the broodmare herd. Half to 4 MSW's. Bought for 25k.

Unnamed (Yes It's Paddy x Autumn Melodies). Out of gold-ranked Autumn Melodies, he is half to MSW/millionaire GCh. Autumn Cat. Picked up for 25k.

I don't suppose we're allowed to know (roughly) what the reserves are?

Obviously we will find out when we start bidding, buuuut no harm in asking ahead of time, lol.

Decided to take a chance with my filly, Catullus. She was 2nd last out in the G2 Dwyer Stakes and has faired well at 8-9f on both turf and dirt. Fingers crossed this isn't a huge mistake, lol.
