Annual Foal Auction / Re: How'd You Do? [2014 Edition]
« on: December 07, 2010, 04:56:10 AM »
We decided to splurge just a bit (with having 1 foal sell for a good price, and this being the first year we can risk more than 15k, haha), and brought home 4 yearlings. Was hoping to get a 5th but the colt went out of our spending limit.

Cherokee Princess - by NCH. Boldness Shows (S) out of Cherokee Freedom.

Red Dog - We were super excited to get this guy. A son of the retired chef-de-race Almost Home (S) out of Foxy Queen (B), whose 2 racing-age foals are both winners.

Hills of Snow - by NCH. Gimme a Shot (S) out of Icy Honor (B), she is a half-sister to 4 winners and one stakes placer.

Pepper Bomb - Titanium x Red Hot Quesadilla (by Dizzybird Jazz).

How'd You Do? / Re: 12/01
« on: December 02, 2010, 04:14:01 PM »
We've been in a slump and there was more of that today.

Only sent out two and both failed to hit the board. Joyeux Oiseau finished 7th of 12 in a 12f turf Allowance. We were hoping he'd bounce back this year with some easy competition but it looks like our big boy is done. He'll compete in 1 last race before most likely heading back to Snowbird International where he will stand at stud for 2015.

Rockin' Robin finished dead last in that same race. Some sales might be on the horizon soon! (and bringing our very few good horses out of vacation at the farm).

I am like...BEGGING to be outbid on the last 2 I have bids on. They still have 11 days to go so here's to hoping.

The two I have won so far I got super cheap (my kind of shopping). I bought Unsolved Mystery to hopefully just be a nice check-earning allowance winner. He's got a nice record so far and great lines, so hopefully he can keep going for another year or two. Got for $6,500.

Second horse I'm thrilled over. $1,000! Ms. Townsend was bought as a broodmare prospect. By a Bronze sire out of a Silver dam (and both out of gold dams), Ms. Townsend is a half-sister to MSW Moon Beam and stakes-placed Puttin' on the Ritz. She'll continue to race this year and depending on her first few starts next year, she'll either keep racing or go to brood.

Breeders Cup Turf - Joyeux Oiseau

I didn't know he was qualified so now I need to rethink his racing schedule in order to get to the Turf, haha.

Annual Mixed Auction / Re: How Did You Do 2014

This is the first time that I could go above $10,000 for a horse so I definitely spent more than I had anticipated, but I'm excited for them all! :D

Our only yearling purchase came at $6,500 and we were so excited to get her that cheap! The now-named WEEKEND RITUAL is by Chef-de-Race stallion A.P. Indy out of unraced Ritual Dancer. Her only half-sib is Behracuda, a 2yo colt who has only raced once so far but finished 3rd. We can't wait to see how she does next year!

We had expected SPACE RAINBOW to go a lot higher so to get him easy and cheap was quite a thrill. A son of Planet Hollywood, he's already raced 14 times as a 3yo but he's hit the board 8 times while reeling off 2 100+ SF, including his latest start. He's out of Northern Lights (Northern Slew), who has produced 2 winners from 2 runners. We'll try him at the track before probably sending him home to rest over the winter.

Typically I do NOT like spending over 10-15k for an unraced horse, but SUN GODESS was a huge exception. She's by Chef-de-Race Red Sunset out of the silver-ranked Lady Godiva who has already produced multiple stakes winner and millionaire Haagan Daaz and 8 winners from 9 runners. Lots of hope riding on this girl!

Our last (and most expensive) purchase was STAR SHOWER. This one is a little funny since, for some weird reason, I thought she was a 3yo--she's 5! Haha. Either way, she's a BIG girl at 17.2hh and has only been off the board once in 7 starts. She hasn't raced since March, beating 6 with an SF of 104 (the next horse finishing with a 3 SF!). We hope she still has the form she showed earlier this spring. Either way, she could make for a nice broodmare next year, depending on how she runs this year.

I have ONE more bid going *crosses fingers* Here's to hoping!

Questions / Two due dates?
« on: June 11, 2010, 01:47:46 PM »
I noticed that my mare, Easy Senora, has 2 completely different due/foaling dates listed on her page: December 26 and Jan 7. Does this mean she could foal around either of these two dates or is it just an error?

« on: March 25, 2010, 08:12:30 PM »
Sent June My Love to contest the Dubai Golden Shaheen *crosses fingers*. I would have sent Joyeaux to the World Cup, considering that is the PERFECT distance for him and he's been doing great, but he's not nominated >.< So he gets to sit that one out and look elsewhere for conquests.

I can't find anywhere to select Sleipnir for Noplaceforamaiden? She's listed as having no pending/approved breedings yet.

Could I please get Feb 2B for my mare Noplaceforamaiden to Sleipnir?

« on: January 25, 2010, 02:00:56 AM »
Sorry for the newbie question, but is there a designated place for me to report bugs? This is another foal who is showing up but still listed as unborn.


Noplaceforamaiden finally foaled! After keeping those legs for a little over 2 weeks past her due date, she finally delivered a Seattle Sorcerer filly. She's been named Lookupmyskirt. No breeding plans yet.

1 colt / 2 fillies / all foaled!

Thank you  :) I figure the foal having a page meant I was safe from a stillborn and that was fine with me, haha.

Well, we have a rather odd thing occurring right now with one of our mares/foals. It's showing her as still holding that baby, but not only is she available to breed again (listed as not in foal on Stable Overview, but in foal AND as having foaled on her page), but I can view the foal's gender/color/markings/height, and name the foal. Alrighty then!

Maiden mare, Easy Senora, by Easy Goer out of Bronze-ranked Silver Senora, delivered a big Secretsarebound filly that we've named Easily Seduced. She's been booked to Government Secret.

1 colt / 1 filly / 1 left to foal
