General/Questions / Re: New famous stallions in 2023?
« on: November 16, 2018, 02:30:56 pm »
Godolphin just announced the retirement of Talismanic, who I would LOVE to nominate as a new FF stud. No in-game relatives in his pedigree, and would add some lovely chrome to the FF gene pool I think.

I would love to make a spotlight post featuring new faces entering stud next year. If anyone would love to let me know who you plan on adding to the roster for 2023 (be it right away or a few months in), either post here or pm me if you want it as more of a surprise. I plan on getting fairly in-depth if possible. Also feel free to add any of your own comments you'd like me to include!

Famous Races/Horses / Re: Japan Cup (Nov. 25)
« on: November 12, 2018, 02:25:08 pm »
Japan Cup is the same surface and distance as Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe. So, is Ch. Autumn Red coming, @Shelbie ? The real life Arc winner Enable has just won Breeders' Cup Turf, so she's having some rest now.

Nope, Autumn Red is taking a breather for the rest of the year. :) I do have 2 aimed for the race, though:

Ch. Marchioness just won the G1 BC Filly & Mare Turf, and she ran 2nd in this year's G1 Irish Derby at 12f so I know she can get the Japan Cup distance.

More of a longshot is Caleuche who was 3rd last out in the G3 Hill Prince Stakes. He hasn't gone beyond 10f before but I think he'll like the extra distance. Also helps he hasn't raced since June, so he should be raring to go.

General/Questions / Leading 2020 Freshman Stallions
« on: November 08, 2018, 03:39:16 pm »
2020 Freshman Stallions
16 stallions entered stud in 2020. In this post, "Freshman" refers to horses whose first crops turned 2 this year. I will update these statistics when the 2022 racing calendar ends to see how much the numbers have changed.

QUICK STATS
Top 5 Sires By Win %
  • City Upon a Hill: 47.37%
  • Curlin: 45%
  • Black Cherry: 32%
  • Away the Lads: 31.82%
  • Pay the Boatman: 31.82%
*If no RL stallions are counted, then fifth-ranked stallion will be Qaurren at 30.43% winners

Top 5 Sires By Progeny Earnings
  • Quarren: $1,217,300 from 23 starters
  • Black Cherry: $797,300 from 25 starters
  • City Upon A Hill: $364,350 from 19 starters
  • Pay the Boatman: $350,300 from 22 starters
  • Away the Lads: $201,050 from 22 starters

Stallions with Stakes Winners
  • City Upon A Hill: Glass City
  • Black Cherry: Ch. Punch Buggy
  • Pay the Boatman: Lethe
  • Quarren: Ch. Madame Pele

Black Cherry and Quarren are both represented by MSW and G1 winning 2yo’s with Ch. Punch Buggy (Black Cherry), winner of the G1 Visionary S and G2 Todman Slipper Trial, and Ch. Madame Pele (Quarren), winner of the G1 Cheveley Park Stakes, G1 Frizette Stakes, and G2 Best Pal S. For the nitpicky, removing Quarren’s MG1W daughter would reduce his progeny earnings to $284,300. Similarly, removing Punch Buggy would reduce Black Cherry to $265,300. Both would still make the top 5 list.

It is worth noting that Ch. Punch Buggy is the only horse to defeat 2yo sensation GCh. Palermo (Foolhardy), who has won 10 of his 11 starts this year.

QUICK OVERVIEW
  • Of the 16 freshman stallions, only 3 have no winners this year: Glorious Victory, Superdocious, and Sponsored. Glorious Victory has 9 2yo’s but none have started this year, Superdocious has 30 2yo’s with 4 of 16 started foals having placed, and Sponsored has 6 2yo’s with 5 starters, all unplaced.
  • Stallions with SP 2yo’s are Bernardini (Seekers Bay) and Usain Bolt (Lightning Bolt, Can’t Keep Me).
  • Of the top 5 sires by leading win percentage, the cheapest at stud is Pay the Boatman at $2,500, followed by honorary-mention Quarren at $5,000. Leading sire City Upon A Hill stands for $6,000. The most expensive stallions are Sponsored, Curlin and Bernardini at $25,000 each.
  • All leading freshman stallions this year have different sires. Black Cherry is the first and only son of FFCH. High Chances at stud.
