I think I have about 5 who need 1-2 more SW finishes. And almost all are chasers. Guess we get to rest and hope for early 2018 that one of them can score! Realistically they'll just eat the entry money and walk backwards.

Great day for me!
Shelbie convinced me to enter Dragon Emperor in a stakes race, so of course he's the only horse today that didn't get 1st or 2nd.

Dragon Emperor (3yo, Eighteen Karat) in the Red Smith Stakes (Gr. 2)

Hey now, it's still a paycheck!

Cherry, while I'm excited to see other people get involved with handicapping, please don't just copy my list directly. Every line is identical. Including my horse name typos. I would appreciate it if you actually tried your own handicapping instead of copying someone for quick cash.

O. M. G. O_O

In previous years I've only ever had 1 entry for the Juvenile Fillies, running 2nd both times (2019, 2020). This year my sole Juvenile Fillies entry not only WON, but we had 4 BC winners total, and another 6 hit the board. Of those 10, half were homebreds. Most of these horses will head home for the rest of the year in preparation for 2022, but job well done! I can now afford stud fees next year.  ;D

20(16)-5(4)-4(2)-5(4)-1(1) $7,096,000

 Wins:
 DJ Racing & Stud lease Y.M.C.A (3yo, In The Navy) in a NW3 Allowance.
 Ch. Lingerie (2yo, Foolhardy) in the Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies (Gr. 1). Has now won 4/5 lifetime starts.
 Ch. Downfall (2yo, V is for Victory) in the Breeders' Cup Juvenile (Gr. 1). He's come a long way from a 1k yearling purchase!
 Ch. Dark Ages (3yo, Changeling) in the Breeders' Cup SC Classic (Gr. 1).
 Caleuche (2yo, Animal Kingdom) in the Breeders' Cup Juvenile Turf (Gr. 1). First SW for his sire and second SW for his dam.

 Places:
 Martini Night (2yo, Nightfight) in a NW2 Allowance.
 RC Bee lease Maple Chime (4yo, Tiznow) in an Allowance.
 Ch. Diamond Etched (4yo, Bellagio) in the Breeders' Cup SC Distaff (Gr. 1).

 Copperhead (3yo, Conflagration) in the Breeders' Cup SC Classic (Gr. 1).
 Bolarus IX (2yo, Giant's Causeway) in the Breeders' Cup Juvenile Turf Fillies (Gr. 1).

 Fourths:

 Fifths:
 RC Bee lease Stellar Starbound (3yo, Galaxy's Zodiac) in the Discovery Handicap (Gr. 3).

General/Questions / 2yo's for 2022
« on: October 29, 2017, 08:59:09 PM »
Actually did fairly well with last year's choices. My choices last year: Caleuche is SP and entered in the BC Juvenile Turf, Downfall recently won an ungraded stakes and is entered in the BC Juvenile, Hard Candy is a multi-winner and ran 4th in an ungraded stakes, Jawbreaker just multi-placed and now at home for the rest of the year, Lingerie has won 3/4 starts including a G1 win and is entered in the BC Juvenile Fillies, and Lord of Misrule is a multi-winner and ran 4th in an ungraded stakes recently.

For 2022 I have my eyes on...

Cider (French Ruby x Midnight Return). Half to MSW Ch. Owl Hunt and MSP Ch. Rosette.

Draconian Love (Von Lichtenstein x June My Love). Sire has been doing fairly well with 41% winners and 1 SP in his first crop. Draconian Love is the first colt for my favorite mare, June My Love, who has produced all winners inluding SP Juniper Tree and G1W Lingerie.

Flattery (Mr. Prospective x Meant to Be). Half to 7 winners including 2 SW's and 4 SP's. From the final crop of gold-ranked Mr. Prospective. Meant to Be tends to throw early bloomers.

Kingsfoil (Worthy Victory x Coronet). Half to Lord of Misrule, a SW and 2 SP's. Worthy Victor has turned into an extremely nice sire already with a MSW and 4 SW's from his first crop -- including my own Hardy Candy mentioned above.

Lancaster (Unabridged x Cadbury). Oldest foal for his dam, so hard to say what he'll do but the damsire is Highland Wizard and Cadbury is half to MSW GCh. Prince of Thieves, 2 silver-ranked half-sisters and a third half-sister whose only racing foal is a SW. I've always had great luck with Unabridged foals.

Novacaine (TakeMeToHollywood x Hot Nurse). Second foal out of MSW/millionaire Hot Nurse, whose oldest foal has hit the board all 5 times this year at 2 (and not bad given the sire is my old boy Joyeux Oiseau, who admittedly wasn't the best). Bred on the same Sire/BM Sire cross as MSW's Ch. Spamalot and WCh. Toast of the Town.

Voices (Express Yourself x Quiet Silhouette). Half to 7 winners including 2 SW's and 1 SP, full sister to SW/MSP Ch. Ni Quito Ni Pongo. Gold-ranked sire.
