Anything Goes / Re: Kentucky Derby 2018 (May 5)

This is the first year I've been brave enough to enter TWO ponies - mostly because They both seemed equally ready and capable. It's a bonus that both are homebreds that are BOTH by stallions I own and out of homebred mares.

First, we have Ch. With Gusto, sired by my retired stallion, V is for Victory, and out of a homebred Gimme A Shot mare. He won the Gr. 2 Louisville Breeders' Cup over 7.5f dirt on April 25th. He's showing as A/A for energy & fitness, so I think he's as ready as he's going to be!

Second, we have Ch. Lake Como, sired by my stallion, Bellagio, and out of my first ever homebred mare (a Highland Pride daughter). He won the G3 Derby Trial over 8.5f dirt on April 18th. He's showing as A/B for energy & fitness, so I'm quite pleased with his prep up to this point.

Fingers crossed for some Derby luck!

Oh no! I'm so sorry to see your lost Allinvain foal!
He comes with LFG though so let me know when/if you'd like a free breeding to him. I know it doesn't fully make up for this loss but maybe it will help a bit.

The rest of your foals looks great. Love the names, especially Jackie O and San Francisco.

Based on this site, it says "horses foaled outside of North America will (also) have an asterisk at the beginning of the tattoo".
http://www.horse-races.net/library/lip-tattoos.htm

It also includes helpful information about the tattoo letter/number combinations and how to get more information on the horse's identity.  :)
