Whew! Well, I've been gone for a while due to school and life and such, and get back to find three new babies! All colts. :)

Fallout
8.2hh bay colt
WCh. Express Yourself x NCh. Morning Waits
January 1, 2016

So excited for this little guy! Express Yourself was a beast on dirt and turf, while Morning Waits is one of my favorites. She was an excellent turf performer and had a record of good record on dirt as well so I am excited for his prospects!

Osterman
8.2hh blue roan colt
GCh. Simply Heroic (B) x Easy Does It (B)
January 4, 2016

This guy should turn out to be a decent little runner. Doozy has produced 7 winners from 8 starters and Simply Heroic is a nice stallion. He's named after Jon Osterman, or Dr. Manhattan, from Watchmen because I am easily amused and Manhattan was already taken as a name.

Red Meridian
9.1hh bay colt
ICh. Doodles x Back North (B) by Northern Dancer (S)
January 8, 2016

I love Doodles so I am pretty excited for this colt. Back North has been a decent producer; with only three foals on the ground, two are winners and one is stakes placed.

Had a lovely little filly born yesterday!

Polona
8.2hh dapple gray filly
NCh. Government Secret (S) x Bellona

Polona looks almost exactly like her mom but with a bit more chrome. Hopefully she will take after her and her dad's two year old form! Government Secret was a beast as a 2 year old, and while Bellona only ran in allowances she won both of them before tailing off. Would like for her to turn into a decent little runner.

Aaaand another colt has graced our stable!

Galactic Appeal
Born: February 1, 2016
9.2hh grey colt
Silver Charm x Fat Frankies Doll

Peals is a lovely little guy, not a lot of chrome though. I'm a sucker for greys. :) Dad's first crop has their first starts this year, while this is Frankie's first live foal. Frankie had a decent record, but she wasn't raced until 4 and didn't start winning until the next year, so I have a feeling it will be a while before this guy shows his true colors.

Finally another filly!

Black Banshee
9.1hh black filly
NCh. Black Warrior x Gone Punk

I was very tempted to name this filly Blitzkrieg Socks but have refrained so far (it's very tempting though). Black Warrior is out of gold- and silver-rated parents and did pretty well on the track, while Gone Punk never did too much on the track. Her first foal will run this year, while Black Warrior's first foals are weanlings.

Tycoon Slew
8.1h dark grey colt
NCh. Slew O'Scots (S) x Daffodil Lil

First off, if anyone has any name suggestions I am very open to them. It seemed like a good idea when I named him at 2 in the morning but now I am not so crazy about it! Slew is going to be a pretty tiny colt, as both his parents are barely over 15 hands. Both were steeplechasers, and while Slew O'Scots raced until he was four, Lil began her career at five and raced until six so I'm not really sure when the colt will mature. Lil was 5-4-1-0, with her only loss coming in a race under 11.5 furlongs. I'm hoping this guy will grow up to be a steeplechasing beast. :)

I like the name. :)

The thistle is the flower of scotland, so perhaps something along those lines if you decide not to stick with Tycoon Slew.

Scottish Thistle would be a cool one, but I like the one he has too! :D  I end up going thru names until I find one that finally fits. Lol

Afar Whence
8.0hh chestnut filly
WCh. Strike It Rich (S) x NCh. Sedaka Century

Very excited for this filly! Strike It Rich was a lovely racer, winning multiple stakes on both dirt and turf. He's had 3 SWs and 1 MSW from only twelve foals to race, and I'm excited to see how his foals fare this year! Sedaka Century was a sprinter of turf and won an Eclipse for older mare (and she is one of my favorite horses :) ). All of her foals so far have been fillies, and her first foal starts on the track this year so hopefully it will go well.

Golden Troubadour
8.2hh dark bay filly
ICh. Sleipnir x Now I'm Vexed

Troubs is named in the tradition of her great-grandfamily, Palace Music and Gold Sun and The Minstrel. Sleipnir was champion 2 year old colt and Now I'm Vexed was a nice 2 year old runner, though she never ran in any stakes. I'm hoping for a nice young runner.

It seems like it's been such a long time since my last foal!

Playfair
9.3hh black filly
NCh. Clockstopper x Cryptotrick

This lovely filly is the second born and first live foal of Cryptotrick. Crypto was a decent runner, winning and placing on both dirt and turf. Clockstopper was a very nice runner on turf and I'm hoping he'll class up Crypto a bit. Playfair is named after the Playfair cipher.

Well we had one late foal and one early.

Illumination
9.2hh dark bay filly
NCh. The Fighting Fifty (B) x GCh. Electrifying [Black Legend (S)]

This filly was born about a week late. I am having a super hard time naming her; nothing really seems to fit. She is almost the spitting image of her mom though. :) The Fighting Fifty was a very nice runner, excelling in sprints and middle distance runs, while Electrifying made her splash almost exclusively in sprinting. All four grandparents are silver-rated.

Utsusemi
8.1hh dark bay colt
ICh. Witness (B) x Soifon

Semi was born a few weeks early. His mom was a nice runner at two and won a stakes at three before sharply tailing off, while Witness raced successfully on all surfaces and at pretty much every distance into his four year old year. I'm hoping to add a bit of longevity to Semi's career. Utsusemi is named after his mom. Soifon is a character in the Bleach anime/manga. One of her powers is utsusemi, which is the ability to move "at great sudden speed, leaving at least one tangible after-image behind."

The first thing that popped into my head with the filly is Hundred Watt (or perhaps Hundred Watt Smile?) Or there's Megawatt or Alva (Thomas Edison's middle name). I'll keep pondering.

Another one today! After this guy, no foals til the end of April and then none til June.

Tarhun
8.2hh liver chestnut colt
Point Given (S) x River of Dreams (B)

Tarhun is named after a Hurrian god of sky and storm, Teshub, whose Hittite name was Tarhun. I got some inspiration from Point Given's sire, Thunder Gulch. :) I'm not sure how this cross will fare. Dreams is a solid producer and my first foal from her, Greylin, was second in her only start.

Finally! After almost a month of waiting (a week and a half of those being late), there's another foal in the barn.

Everyman's Right
10.0hh strawberry roan colt
WCh. Strider (S) x One True Way (S)

This big guy is half to three MSP runners and one MSW so I'm hoping Strider will give him some class and bump him up into Super Awesome Runner territory.

8 colts
7 fillies
1 foal left (not until June! :( )

Last foal of the year was finally born yesterday!

Ultraglory
8.2hh bay colt
ICh. Magic Glory (S) x Ch. Kentucky Bourbon by Foolish Pleasure (S)

Ultraglory is a handsome little guy. Magic Glory and Bourbon raced almost exclusively as steeplechasers while both peaked in their four year old year. Bourbon wasn't the flashiest racehorse but she was super consistent which is a trait I'm hoping she'll pass on to her offspring. I'm excited for this guy to start racing and see if he has any talent on the flat.
