Coleman Branch's 2022 Studs: Late to the Party
« on: December 28, 2017, 06:39:39 pm »
All stallions are LFG, so if you'd like to breed back to a particular boy for free in future years, just message me and I'll make note of it.  These guys are all first-come, first-served.  They'll all be BC nominated. 

NCh. Pay the Boatman
16.1 Bay Stallion
FFCh. Foolhardy (P) x Afterlife (G) x False Promises (G)
Family Notes: Sire needs no introduction.  Via dam, he is 1/2 to GCh. Nighthawk, Ch. Last Letter Home, and Ch. Eridanos. 
Race Highlights: Finished top 4 in 21 stakes between ages 2 and 4.  G1 Wins (Breeders' Cup Juvenile Turf, Man O'War Breeders Stakes, Victoria Derby), G2 Wins (Del Mar Derby, Knickerbocker Stakes, Lucky Cigar Stakes), G3 Wins (Labour Day Cup). 
Turf Specialist

His first foals hit the track next year, so his fee will remain at $2500 for the season.

NCh. Celtic Star
16.h Light Bay Stallion
Bronze-ranked (4.9)
Family Notes: None - makes a great outcross for anyone!
Race Highlights: Finished in the top 4 in 20 stakes, ages 3-5 (only raced once as a 2yo).  G1 Wins (Cigar Breeders' Stakes, Eclipse Stakes), G2 Wins (Theo Marks Stakes, Hill Stakes, Dixie Stakes, Turnbull Stakes), G3 Wins (Gravesend Stakes, Carylon Cup, Arlington Handicap).  Set 3 speed records (10, 10, 14f). 
Turf Specialist
Notable Foals: NCh. Tir Na Nog (MSW, MSP, retiring to stud in 2022), Ch. Celtic Rose, Ch. Peacefully

Most of his foals are FF-owned and therefore lighlty raced or unraced.  His 2022 crop is the first that will be primarily player-owned, so his ability as a sire is largely unproven.  His fee will remain at $5,000.  Two injuries during career: swelling (LF, 2011), heat (RH, 2012). 

NCh. Tir Na Nog
15.3h Dark Bay Stallion
NCh. Celtic Star (B) x Ch. Runaway Princess
Family Notes: See sire above.  He is dam's only foal to race so far.
Race Highlights: Finished top 4 in 17 stakes races, ages 2-5.  G1 Wins (Hong Kong Cup, Barretts Stakes), G2 Wins (Del Mar Derby), G3 Wins (Grafton Cup, October Cup). 
Turf Specialist

He's been a steady presence over the years, winning stakes at all ages despite my poor management.  He did, however, have what I understand is a major injury - limping (LF, 2021).  (Until the recent discussion, I was thinking of limping as something potentially minor, like a stone bruise, but I'm glad I was set to rights!)  That being said, I'll understand if there is reduced interest in him or his sire, since injury potential is hereditary.  His fee will be $2500.  I plan to send him some sound mares to see if they might improve his chances.
