Just one [overdue] baby left for June.

BRONZE BOMBER, 10.1h liver chestnut colt
NCh. Al Mundhir x Tobin Bronze - GCh. Secretsarebound
Third foal for his dam, who set a speed record at SC during her career. Hard to say what he will do, as his dam's oldest foal (2yo) is unraced, and most of her half-siblings either retired early or are unraced. Here's to hoping the Almost Home/Secretsarebound cross does well! Tobin Bronze to hopefully visit Run Jenny Run for 2023.

ZUPANJA, 9.1h brown filly
GCh. Zadar x Immortal Beloved - GCh. Jazz It Up (G)
Named for a town in Croatia. Dam is half to 2 MSW's and 2 SW's, and from the same damline as Dark Flame II (dam of Highland Burning) and ICh. Twilight Embers (dam of Fight the Twilight). Bred on a lease, Immortal Beloved has returned to Marshall Creek Ranch.

Lovely foals! Wish mine were keeping pace with colts:fillies.

Some name ideas for your Fortuna Major filly because I can't resist:
O Fortuna
Fortunes Favored / Favored Fortune
*Tristitia
*Laetitia
Greater Good (from Fortuna Major = Greater Fortune)
Treasure Planet (fortune + planet?)
Turn the Tide
Turntable

*Both geomantic figures, like fortuna major.

25
In awe to have witnessed TWO Triple Crown Champions! What a finish!

Congrats to Bong Bong Bong but I'm a little distracted by Justify. :D

On a more positive note, huge congratulations to Shelbie on Chortle's win in the Epsom Derby. Lots of carrots for his dam tonight as we ponder why we sold him  :P

Haha, isn't that how it always works? Sell horse. Horse wins everything. I'm quite happy you sold him! :D

I feel 1 colt + 1 filly is my new norm for the rest of the foaling season.

GIN FIZZ, 10.0h dark bay colt
NCh. French Ruby x Twist of Lime - Seattle Slew (G)
Was so happy for a colt so I could use this name. And he's quite big! Twist of Lime is half to MSW's NCh. Franco Classico and Ch. Lil' Bit O'Class, as well as our own mare French Resistance who has produced 2 SW's and 1 SP from 3 runners. Twist of Lime will visit LiveLong&Prosper next.

WEEKENDONTHEMOON, 8.2h grey filly
NCh. Allinvain x Seattle Rockette - Seattle Slew (G)
Half to MSW Ch. RadioCity Rockette. Seattle Rockette will visit Ducati next.
