I understand how that goes. The only reason I have had time to work on it is because I work for my uncle, so on slow days I can do personal stuff at work.

I currently have 3 that I hope will find their feet in their 3YO year.

Major Victory is a July colt by gold-ranked GCh. Major's Flight and out of silver-ranked Man O'War mare, Ch. Fairly Persistent. He has 3 older brothers, all who have matured late 2YO/3YO, so I'm hoping he picks it up a bit next season.

Next is Fractal, by NCh. Changeling and out of one of my favorite mares, Ch. Limelight. She's been my most successful 2YO, with a 2nd and 3rd out of 4 starts. Hoping this is a sign that things will only get better from here.

Final hopeful is Magician's Rose, by gold-ranked ICh. Magic Glory and silver ranked Crytorose. 3YO sister Luck of the Rose seems to have matured nicely this year, so I'm hoping Magician's Rose will follow her example.

Seeing as how this is the first year I've managed to figure out how to get my horses to run straight, I can't comment too much on quality breedings. Certainly, it's been very interesting and enlightening to read everyone else's posts. One thing I did this year, though, that I have not seen in any of the other posts is that I have recently started tracking my horses' racing times. I've created a sheet containing lists of the various times different distances have been won at, and then I compare those times to my horses' results and those of the studs I'm looking into. One thing I've noticed is that some horses win races without actually running very well (i.e. all the runners in the race were having a hard time running that day). This can make their race records a little skewed as to what they actually did well on.

Some of the older horses are more difficult to judge, since the oldest races only listed the win time of the winning horse, and for those that ran after the implementation of time results, they still seem to have run slower on average than horses are running now. In that case, I've been looking at foal results, which stallions are proven to produce despite lacking race records and which ones aren't. From there, I try to match surface, distance, and maturation rate when choosing the stud. Still an unproven method, but the goal was to see if I could breed horses that were both high quality runners and easier to predict in terms of preference. We'll see how it goes.

Other than that, I do a lot of the same things everyone else does. I try to look at the damlines, see which stallions seem to be good crosses with them, and match them accordingly. Breed rankings are always a factor, though for the young stallions especially, I give them some leeway since they don't always have crops that have been run long enough to prove their quality. I also try to leave different mares in different locations to cut down on shipping costs (especially places like Australia!).

Gonna revive this old post since it seems the same issue is happening again.

All Those Glasses - 6 foals/4 racers/2 winners
Ch. Club Liquid - 4 foals/2 racers/2 winners
Ch. Dodge The Draft - 5 foals/3 racers/2 winners

Not a huge issue necessarily, but would be nice to see how they rank if possible.
