Annual Foal Auction / Re: 2015 How'd You Do?

Once I was outbid on the 5th horses, I forced myself not to go after her, haha. I got 4 for 15k and should be happy with that alone!

Cricket Hill - Barely Black had a GREAT 2yo career! Too bad she broke her leg. I also noticed that Valais has an older half-sister who has been doing pretty well as a broodmare, so at least she can be a prospect as well!

So far I've picked up 4 for $14,000 with a bid still going on a 5th. Lost out on most of my top choices, but I'm still quite happy with what I've taken home so far (and at a great steal!).

Ominous Skies [War Chant (B) x CH. Yes It's Storming) was our lone weanling acquisition. I typically only go for yearlings but I really, really liked her. She's a 13.2hh black weanling and the second foal out of MSW Yes It's Storming. Got her for $6,500.

Akram [WCH. King David (B) x Keeta (B), by Easy Street (B)] is a 16.0hh chestnut yearling colt, so we're hoping for lots of nice things at 2! He's half to MSW CH. Marble Man and Veritas, who has finished off the board only 7 times in 22 starts. We also liked adding in slightly new blood with Easy Street. Picked him up for $1,000.

Garibi [GCH. Harvard Bound (B) x Silver Eclipse (S)] is a 15.1hh black yearling colt. He's half to SW CH. Wrapped in Silver and two other winners. Also picked him up for $1,000.

Finally we have Valais [NCH. Gone Haywire (B) x Natural Disaster (S)], originally named All Systems Go. Considering her sire unfortunately retired young, we were especially happy to get her. She's half to two SW, four SP, and 9 of her 10 racing siblings have won. Picked her up for $6,500.

Just fyi, it's Waterpearl not Waterpark for Oscillation  ;) Just in case that causes some booking confusion later.
