Added three more for $1000 a piece.

Ruby Stilettos a small filly by Alley Cat out of Cigar's Diva. Quite a nice pedigree and I liked the name.

Redheaded Princess a flashy chestnut by Boldness Shows out of the created mare American Tiara. Mum was placed at Grade 1 level and set a speed record so she might have some potential.

And finally Dance World another one by Take Me Away out of Country Weekend who's an AP Indy half sister to NCh Arda and the platinum ranked broodmare Italy.

Well I managed to snag 4 out of 5, of which only one isn't black. Lol I got 1 filly and 3 colts for a grand total of $4k!!


First

Dagestan -a June colt All black with a little white on all four legs
By-ICh. Alley Cat (B)   (Alydar (S) x Ch. Highland Dreamer (P))
Out of-Genuinely Gold (B)   (Created x Created)
With his sireline I thought he would be grabbed up, I really didn't need more 2yos but he's a June baby so I will plan on him starting later.
He's 1/2  to ch hint of gold and ch sonatina

Next is the filly
Julie's Turn -a June, filly, all black  with a star and snip
By-GCh. Harvard Bound (B)   (Almost Home (S) x Boston's Best (S))
Out of-Martenne (B)   (Created x Created)
A nice little project pony :) another one who will start a little later than the rest.


And the last 2 colts
Risen Star -all black colt,with a right hind ermine, and another June baby
By-Ch. Rumor Has It (B)   (Planet Hollywood (S) x Street Talk (S))
Out of-Our Juliet (B)   (Romeo (G) x Our Auntie Mame (B))
The first one in the bunch with nice bloodlines on both sides.

And

Thru Traffic- a liver chestnut , feb, colt, with hind ermines and a stripe
By-Giant's Causeway (B)   (Storm Cat (B) x Created)
Out of-Western Echo    (Omaha (S) x Fappie's Echo (B)) (((gallant fox)))
Not a lot to go on here, but with all the big ,old,names in his pedigree I'm hoping for at least a nice consistent pony.

One last one to add to my haul

Einherjar (Alley Cat X Fromdawntilldusk) 15.3 Blood Bay.
Just decided to grab him because of his name and his prospects. Hopefully he'll run well when we get to April

Brought home 5 for a grand total of $17,000 - I'm quite happy with this (and a bit shocked).

LAUDRI is a 16hh chestnut son of silver-rated Point Given.  He is out of the created mare, Gaia - who had quite a successful year at 5YO, placing 1st or 2nd in 9 of 10 non-stakes starts.  Hopefully that talent passes down, and combined with Point Given's ability to produce, make him quite the little runner.  But since mom was a late bloomer, and dad's babies tend to wait 'til 3 to blossom, I'm not expecting a whole lot from him as a 2YO.  He may look tall, but he's expected to reach 16.2hh at least, so he's not quite mature.  But at $1,000, how could I say no?

MONTALVO is another Point Given baby, and even taller than Laudri - 16.3hh!  She is a lovely dark bay, and her dam is Avan Mania - a stakes placed mare who never ran at 2, but was very successful at 3YO.  I'm hoping this means Montalvo will be early to mature & find her footing - and she is certainly in her anticipated height range.  Fingers crossed...but either way, she was a steal at only $1,000.

NATOMAS is a tiny 14.3hh black colt.  He is by Harvard Bound, and out of the silver-rated Whirling Diamond.  This makes him half to MSW GCh. Diamond Prospector and SW Ch. Pink Diamond.  We expect him to be a late maturer - and that sounds about right, since he is expected to hit 15.2hh at least.  A $1,000 waiting game.  :)

NICOLE'S MAJIC is a 15.3hh dark bay A.P. Indy daughter.  I'm excited to have an Indy youngster to start & run.  Her dam was a multi-winner, and both of her half siblings to race are winners so far.  So I think she can at least be a winner.  She is in the middle of her expected height range, so hopefully we'll get a better idea of her capabilities soon.  She was our "big purchase" at $13,000, which I still feel is quite a steal.

WAR CHEST is a 14.3hh blue roan fellow.  He is sired by War Chant, who rather solidly produces winners, but has had a couple of good foals.  His dam is Ch. Beer Barrel, a multi-stakes winning mare (G1 level).  He is the first foal from this mare, so we'll see how well she passes her talent down.  He is expected to meet 15.2hh at least, so he's got quite a bit of growing to do yet.  And that makes sense - mom didn't blossom until 4YO.  He's yet another $1,000 waiting game, but I'm sure he's worth that.

Picked up a total of 4 for $25,000. Not too shabby!

Bea Godsall
http://www.finalfurlong.org/viewhorse.php?horse=16480
[ICh. Highland Magic (G) x GCh. Carnegie Cat]
This 2yo filly was my most expensive purchase at $17,000. Unfortunately i'm not a big fan of her name, but I am a big fan of her pedigree! Highland Magic has produced some fantastic racers with an average earning of almost $570,000.. Not too shabby! His stud fee alone makes this filly worth her purchase price ;). Her dam, Carnegie Cat, is out of created bloodlines but she had a pretty fantastic racing career. Bea Godsall will be her first foal to hit the track.

Little Inclination
http://www.finalfurlong.org/viewhorse.php?horse=16038
[FFCh. High Chances (S) x Ch. Angel of Whimsy]
This 2yo colt was purchased for $7000. He is out of High Chances who has 2 generations of foals running, both of which are doing very well. Inclination's dam is out of created bloodlines but was a SW and had a decent racing career. Here's hoping Little Inclination follows his sire's lead!

Bluebook
http://www.finalfurlong.org/viewhorse.php?horse=16577
[NCh. Secretary (S) x Admiral's Girl (S)]
This gal was a bit of a last minute, instinct purchase for a tiny $1000. Her sire has produced some very nice runners and he is now retired so I am happy to have been able to get some of his lineage into my stable. Bluebook's dam is unraced but has produced some nice, consistent foals. Bluebook is 1/2 to SP Validator.

American Promise
http://www.finalfurlong.org/viewhorse.php?horse=16820
[WCh. King David (S) x Easy River (S)]
This colt was also an instinct purchase for $1000. King David has produced some solid foals, though they appear to be later bloomers so I may have to be patient to see American Promise's full potential! American's dam wasn't the best runner but she too has produced some nice foals including MSW Ch. Patriarch

Just made one purchase and only because he's from the same family as one of my favorite mares, GCh. Diamond Prospector. Magnificent Red is a tiny gelded son of Diamond Corridor and Harvard Bound. Diamond Corridor's a good producer, if not as good as her two broodmare daughters, and Harvard Bound's a decent sire, so I expect him to be a consistent runner. He'll debut towards the end of the year since he's only 14.3hh. Snagged him for $2,000.
