General/Questions / Re: January Stallion Spotlight II: Gilded Saint

Awesome spotlight! I love reading these.

I bred Spiritofstlouis back before I decided to cut down to a more specialized focus. I'd forgotten that he was by Gilded Saint! I sold him at auction for a mere $1,000 just to get rid of my hurdle-bred youngsters. I'm so glad to see that he lived up to that potential! It looks like he's only 1 win away from studhood himself. If he qualifies, he would be the 4th Ivy Creek homebred at stud.

Additionally, we've had a lot of bookings come in directly through the stallion pages. I have now updated all the bookings on this thread to reflect their current openings. Either method works (though the forum works best to reserve a booking for a mare who hasn't yet foaled/retired).

I'm so happy to see their books filling up!

I've got her added! The earliest I had was April 2. Is that ok?

I certainly don't claim any rights over my horses' names outside of FF. I'm sure there are tons of real horses out there that probably have some/similar names. I wouldn't mind.

Meh. A bunch were shipped last minute and were warned they would take "an energy hit". I'm hoping that hit was just bigger than I thought and hindered their performance!

That's what I figured it was meant to do, but the code seemed to pick random colors for the auto-formatting. I thought maybe a different parameter was set for foal announcements and I'd missed it somehow. The OCD side of me will likely go up and fix the ones already posted to reflect the correct genders, then.  :) Thank you for fixing it, Shanthi!

Two more babies today:

GCh. Zadar x Ch. Oh So Proud - ICh. Highland Pride (S)
8.3h dark bay colt

1/2 brother to Lake Como (SW)

NCh. Bellagio (S) x Ch. Smile Awhile - GCh. Worth My While (G)
8.3h bay filly

Dam is MSW who set 2 speed records at age 3

Lewis, I'm grateful for your help keeping my barn active during the crazy years of newborn babies/figuring out motherhood. I don't think my FF farm would have survived it otherwise.
Shanthi - I will always keep an eye out for horses from your barn as I've had a lot of luck with them thus far!

Two more babies arrived. It seems that each day has brought only fillies or only colts, oddly. Today was a filly day.

NCh. Ducati x Claire de Lune - GCh. Highland Laird (S)
9.3h bay filly

Dam is 1/2 to two MSWers

NCh. Fight The Twilight x Ch. Worth A Treasure - GCh. Worth My While (G)
9.3h bay filly

Dam is a MSW who set 7 total speed records at age 3 & 4

5 Colts | 6 Fillies

I will definitely be checking those separately now that I know!

So bizarre! It wasn't showing up under "Show unread posts since last visit" which I check obsessively, but when I clicked on the Stallion Advertising thread it did indeed show a new posting. I've got her all booked!
