Where are they now?
« on: June 26, 2018, 05:43:25 pm »
I found this topic from 10 years ago and thought it extremely interesting. I decided specifically to focus on the youngstock and 2yo auctions, as all horses from these auctions would have been unproven. What happened to the horses we were so excited to purchase? Well....

Not counting this year's 2yo auction as that's still fresh. Apparently I've sold the majority of my auction horses (only own 3 of the listed 30). But at least I bought most for just 1k! I'd be curious looking at older auctions or the Mixed/Select.

2020 2yo Auction
Aggressive Honey - $1000. Still own/racing, and was MSP at 2 and 3 with a SW at 3. 4 for 14 with 181k banked.
Different Clover - $1000. Winless at 2 and sold, and just broke his maiden this past April. 1 for 15, still racing.
Known Brick - $1000. Sold end of 2yo season and just broke her maiden this month with a switch to SC. 1 for 13, still racing.
Minor Deer - $1000.  Sold at 3, is now 2 for 14 with just under 30k earned. Still racing.
Shy Lock - $1000. Was sold last September and has been inactive since August. 2 for 11, 34k.
Various Shore - $1000. Sold at 3, won 6/10 starts that year and is SP this year. 276k banked and 7 for 20.

2019 2yo Auction
Defiant Ember - $1000. Hit the board 5/6 times at 6, but sold in May of 3yo season. Inactive since October, but has won 3 of 18 and 100k.
Lotus - $6000. Sold after a dismal 2yo season, but also went on to better things: Ch-titled, SW/MSP of 200k but inactive since November.
Fire Opal - $1000. Unplaced at 2 and sold, but now champion-titled and a MSW of almost 440k, including a G1 this year.
Rose Gold - $1000. Dismal 2yo season then sold. Now 4 for 24 with 107k earnings, still racing.

2018 2yo Auction
Dixie Dance - $1000. Unplaced at 2, managed almost 50k at 3 before being sold. Has won 124k and is 5 for 28, still racing.
Hollywood Fire - $1000. Unplaced at 2, sold after unplaced 3yo debut. Has managed 185k and is 3 for 36, still racing.
Smoked Out - $1000. Unplaced at 2 but managed 116k at 3 before being sold. Is now MSP as a chaser with 303k in the bank, still racing.
