Four foals for less than $20K. Hoorah! A fifth is on her way.

An unnamed filly by Rock of Gibraltar (B) out of Ch. Behind the Mask (S) was nabbed for $1K. She's been named Invincible.

Another unnamed filly by ICh. Prince of Wonder (S) out of Ch. Associated Press was picked up for the very reasonable sum of $1K. She's been named Indian Princess, in honor of her maternal granddam and grandsire.

A filly by WCh. Strider (G) out of Queen Robyn for $15.5K. She's been named Westernesse, the native kingdom of Aragorn in Lord of the Rings.

A colt by Sun King out of Crimson Chance (S), who we've named (appropriately) Crimson Sun.

I purchased 5 for $74,000. Not too shabby!

Waving Octopus by Octagonal (B) out of Colors Waving (G). We purchased this yearling filly because of her dam, Octopus is 1/2 to NCh. Aptitude and SP Pandora's Box. Octagonal's first foals hit the track this year, they haven't really proven themselves yet. Oh, and I loved his name too :)
Purchase Price: $50,500

Unnamed by NCh. Golden Text out of Keeta (S). Can't believe how cheap I got this filly, Golden Text doesn't have any foals running yet but he's out of A.P. Indy who I love and he was a fantastic runner. Keeta has had some really nice running foals including GCh. Marble Man and SW Kaneseatt. Shes been named Akita
Purchase Price: $1000

Unnamed[/color] by ICh. Sixth Day and out of Ch. Milestone. His dam and sire aren't proven yet as they dont have any running foals yet but I was looking at the lineage further down. Sixth Day is out of Planet Hollywood (great stally) and the GCh. Platinum rated mare Carbon Copy, cant ask for a better mare then that! His dam, Milestone is out of NCh. Lucky Cigar (G) and the silver rated mare Happy Holidays. I this the hollywood lines crossed with the cigar lines should produce a rockin foal. He has been named Mile A Minute
Purchase Price: $20,500

Unnamed[/color] by FFCh. High Chances (S) and out of Trust. Her sire is the reason I purchased this filly, her sire has thrown some great foals and his stud fee is $25,000, making this purchase price a really really good deal. Her dam is a create, heres hoping she throws good running foals! She has been named Tried and True
Purchase Price: $1000

Black Lotus[/color] by NCh. Black Light II and out of Lotus Blade. Honestly, I loved her name so I bought her! With that said I am really interested to see how Black Light's foals will run, I dont have any horses by him. Her dam is a created mare who never raced so its a shot in the dark how her foals will be. Fingers crossed!
Purchase Price: $1000

Hermelinda - 2015 filly by Holy Bull, out of Ch. Art of Song. Her dam is multiple stakes placed, Grade 1 and 2. We only have one other filly by Holy Bull.

Just one buy so far for 1k, an unnamed filly by Rock of Gibraltar out of Dream Girl. She is half to a MSW and her dam is a reine de course, the only horse in the game to have s/p, now just to figure out what that means Haha ::). Although her sire is bronze his first crop only ran this year so I am keen to see how they go next year!

S is "solid" and P is "professional", but it basically means they lean towards slow for long distances rather than super fast in sprints.

Secured four from the original wish list, for $1000 each. Really pleased as they've all got IMHO lovely pedigrees, each descending from my favourite lines in the FF stud book. They're all previously unnamed weanlings so we'll have to wait a while until their ready to run.

Masquerade Ball NCh Formal Occasion x Moonlight (Time Bomb)
May 28, 1st foal for a MW, MP mare. Dam is out of Timeless Wiccan (G) making her half sister to eight stakes level performers including NCh Always In Demand, GCh Salem and GCh Western Magic.

Private Dancer ICh Magic Glory (S) x Secret Promises (Silver Secrets (G))
Feb 15, 1st foal for SW mare, a daughter of Dance For Me, herself a daughter of RDC mare Dance at Dawn. We already have Dance For Me and her daughter Peep Show and couldn't pass on another family member. Her sire seems quite nice and brings some new lines for us.

Trapeze Tiznow (B) x Upstage Dancer (S) (Northern Slew)
Apr 27, 7th foal and so far only filly for her dam. Half sister to our own GCh Baringa, much loved here at GB. Despite her sire's quite poor record we're very pleased to have her. Upstage Dancer is herself a half sister to our platinum ranked brood Crowd Pleaser.

War of Words War Chant (B) x Ch Primrose (Northern Dancer)
Jan 30, another first foal for a MSW dam. Primrose is a daughter of gold-ranked Rosebud, dam of ICh What's Your Point. The wider family includes ICh Witness. War Chant seems to produce quite consistent runners.

For the first time ever, we picked out ponies that no one else wanted, and walked away with 3 babies (probably 3 more than we needed :P) for $3,000 total. If any of these boys do well, it may be our most profitable auction.

Off The Charts is a yearling son of ICh. Take Me Away (B) and Chart Topper (created). His dam was sporadically raced (by Final Furlong) at ages 4, 5, and 6, and still managed a few wins and a stakes place. Her first foal, a filly by War Chant, is unplaced to date, but also under FF management. This boy's a good size (16.1h) so we're hoping he does well next year.

Metalkprettyoneday is a weanling son of Octagonal (B) and Ch. Subject to Learn (by GCh. Harvard Bound). He's the first foal of his dam, who was a multiple stakes winner on the track. He's named after the David Sedaris book, because David Sedaris is awesome.

Devil Incarnate is a weanling son of Octagonal (B) and Soul Action (B) (created). His dam was stakes placed on the track, and his big sister is a winner on the track.

Octagonal's been good to us so far, so we're hoping these boys at least earn back their purchase price, and then some. ;)

Picked up four for a whopping $14,500  ;D.

Revenge of the Cat, ICh. Alley Cat (B) x Ch. Avenging Angel, by Magic Man (B) (but 4.7 Silver as a broodmare sire).
I'm pretty leery of the Alley Cat's because they tend to not run straight but now and again you'll have a good one. Revenge of the Cat has a high DI and his dam is half to A Reason to Love (dam of 2 MSW's). Magic Man's 10 daughters have also produced MSW NCh. Black Light II and MSW Ch. Rocket Smoke (whom I own). Plus I liked his name and he's a dapple gray which I'm a sucker for.

Storm the Castle, Giant's Causeway (B) x American Graffiti (B), by NCh. Killing Time (S)
Formerly named Flames Golden Cross. I wanted a Giant's Causeway and really liked this girl. American Graffiti only has 3 racing-age foals but one is unraced, a 2nd only made 2 starts at 2 and has been inactive since 2015, and her one active runner is a SW. American Graffiti is also out of American Chance (G), dam of NCh. Diplomat, Home Fries (G), and GCh. Higher Agenda.

Star Spangled, NCh. Starz 'n' Stripes (S) x Apple Pie, by A.P. Indy (S)
Formerly named All American Girl. I like Starz 'n' Stripes but only had 1 other horse from his line (via Starzen) so this girl definitely caught my eye! Tthe A.P. Indy/Starz 'n' Stripes cross has done fairly well between two runners and Apple Pie is out of Sugary Lips (G).

Greysteil, NCh. Nobly Regal x Goforburst (S), by Highland Rogue (P)
I typically avoid weanlings but I really, really wanted this boy. Nobly Regal is by Danzig (G) out of Delightful Natalie (G); Nobly Regal's first crop was born this year. Goforburst was a really consistent runner, hitting the board 15/19 times; she is out of Prospector's Gamble (G) dam of MSW's GCh. Cigar's Gamble and ICh. Clendon Park (G). Nobly Regal is half to GCh. Goforbust. Greysteil (graysteel) was a medieval poem from the 16th century. He was my most expensive boy at 11k.

Secured our final choice, somewhat more expensive than the other recruits @ $90000   :o
Still he's from AP Indy's last crop out of a stakes level mare by Seabiscuit.

Prohibition AP Indy x Rum Runner (Seabiscuit).
Feb 3, first foal for SW, MSP mare. Dam is out of the gold ranked Apple Pie.

All in all happy with what we've come home with.

And the last one is at the barn. I was thinking of this colt at the beginning, but then wanted another one, but that other colt was soon taken for the maximum price. So I looked back at the auction and this one remained unnoticed.

El Consuelo - I continue with the Spanish-themed names ;) - the name means "comfort", as I hope that he will be as good as the other colt. He's by Octagonal, and I only have one other weanling by this stud, a filly. El Consuelo's dam, Out of This, is a twin. Her sister's name is Out of That. Her sister also has a weanling foal, but not consigned to the auction. They are by Danzig (G), and we have none of his blood at Clicker Lab. Also, Out of That is stakes placed (Gr. 1) and has two speed records on dirt. So I think that this is a quite interesting pedigree and hopefully he'll be successful on the track. Purchased for $1,000.

Total spent: $12,500. Not bad for three horses.

We are a new stable and didn't have a ton to spend but we still came home with five, three of which were our original picks. We didn't want to get into bidding wars with established stables so when one was outbid, we moved on and managed to get all five for $1000 each. All of these guys are yearlings which will help us double our runners next year.

1. Cash Cat - ICh Alley Cat (B) x Ch Your Cash Treat (S) ( Silhouette (B))
This one is half to SW Ch. Bold Silhouette and SP Ch. Your Chant. We wanted this one because we own Your Chant who is a really nice runner and we hope Cash Cat will do the same.

2. Ashes to Ashes - ICh Devil His Due (B) x Death Becomes Her (B) (Ch Rumor Has It (B))
This one was a pickup to fill in an outbid. Definitely worth the 1k. I liked the name. I'm not sure how well choosing them by name works, but I guess we will find out :)

3. Tall Tales - Holy Bull (B) x Won't She Tell (B) (Seattle Slew (S))
Tall Tales is half to a couple of SP Champions and I am a fan of the pedigree so I was really pleased to get this one. Won't She Tell is bronze ranked but her average foal earnings are 401,667. I'd like to see that kind of return on my investment ;)

4. Weather Mage - NCh Seattle Sorcerer (S) x Castleonacloud (create)
His sire is silver ranked and his dam had a decent record. I thought this was a good buy for 1k. Although, I did again, choose him because I liked his name.

5. ImlateImlateImlate  -  ICh Stressed (B) x AMad Hatter (create)
I probably could have snagged a better colt than this, but I suckered in for the name again. Still, so cheap it was worth the risk. Will probably just change his name to I'm Late because having no apostrophe is killing me.

Overall, my budget was satisfied and I hope I didn't pick too badly for being a newbie.

Wow everyone got really good ones when you dig into their pedigrees!

Ah thanks for clearing that up about the RDC Shanthi   ;)  I can't wait to see if it carries through but I bought all weanies!

I have a love/hate relationship with naming so all names are currently pending my future whimsy

The first filly by Rock of Gibraltar out of Dream Girl is now named The Dream Stone

Goldensands NCh. Golden Text x Ch. Monterey Bay (Fleet Street(S))
Neither one of her parents are proven but her Dam is an MSP owned by FF so I thought she was a good bargain at 1k

Izquicker Tiznow (B) x GCh. Engaging (Created)
Tiznow has a pretty poor record but as his Dam is a Multi-Millionaire I took the chance at 1k since I lost some of my first choices

Sunday Shenanigans NCh. Conflagration x Sunday Best (S) (Sunday Silence(S))
I bought this guy for 10.5k, one of my first picks. He is half to a SP and a MSW who is only 3 this year, he has two other half siblings, one owned by FF and the other unraced

Midnight in Omaha NCh. Black Warrior X Ch. Back to Omaha (Omaha (s))
Very happy with this boy, another at 1k and although Black Warrior is yet unproven a lot of What's It Worths' breeding progeny have good rankings. His dam Back to Omaha never really got to show her full potential, only racing at ages 4 & 5 and being retired right after a Gr. 1 win so I think he has some good blood in his veins!

Thank goodness we can only have five from this auction - i was going to avoid it but had a quick look and was lost! Some of the names will be changed/given when I have time to think them through though.

Warrior Witch (Call to War x Zatanna)$1,000 dam has only 2 foals on the track, both winners and one a stakes winner so i hope this girl will follow suit. We will be seeing her sires first crop run next year and looking forward to that.
 
Unnamed (Tottenham Hotspur x Dancing Chevron) $15,500 This was the one i wanted and was pleased to get him for this price. This is his sires first crop and I like that he has a good speed record over distance and that his full brother also has a great race record over classic and long distance. i hope this ability will get passed on. his dam was created but is a stakes placed and stakes winner despite being a FF owned horse and may not have always had her races well selected.
 

Clansman (Highland Laird x Rubamatic) $1,000 I can't really believe I picked up a laird baby for $1,000! His dam is another FF mare and so randomly entered in races. despite this she was OTB 12 times from 18 starts and was stakes placed on 2 occasions. so i'm hoping for good things from this little chap
 

Hide In The Corner $1,000  ( Express Yourself x Miss Kelly)his sire is beautifully bred with both parents multi stakes winners, stakes placed and millionaires. He  has won over all distances and both surfaces. This is a stallion I much admire but standing in australia his stud fee has to be added to a high shipping fee (there and back)so I have hesitated to use him.I'm delighted to get the chance to own one of his foals. His dam also looks promising for although she is created and unraced her 3 foals have either won or been placed.
 

Saxon Warrior (formerly Aladdin)  $1,000 (Gimme a Shot x Northern Princess) I have none of this stallions progeny in my stable so $1,000 to obtain one is a bargain.
This lot and my own should keep me occupied the next couple of years  :)

I couldn't resist!  I did a good job of thinning the herd last spring, so that's how I justify it.

And even though I could have competed for the high priced ponies (for once!), I wound up going after ponies who got no other bids, to my surprise.  I really thought there would be more competition to get them.  To get pedigrees like this for only $1,000 apiece feels like a crime.

Here's who we took home:

Intrepid, a weanling colt bred by Diamond Dale Farm.  He is by NCh. Carrowmore, the lovely Irish River son, and out of Aint Afraid To Die, a Cross Roads daughter from a gold-rated mare, who hinted at her pedigree by earning two speed records (11 and 11.5f turf).

That's All Folks, a yearling filly by the young stallion, ICh. Take Me Away (by the famous Cigar).  She is out of Ch. Catch Phrase, a What's It Worth MSW who also earned a 5f speed record.  I'm interested to see how Take Me Away does as a sire, since his oldest foals are 2YOs and will hopefully do better as they mature.  I'm hoping that mom turns out to be a good mix with him.

Spin The Bottle, another yearling filly, this time by NCh. The Fighting Fifty, whose offspring 3YO and up are pretty much all winners, if not stakes level.  Personally, I like him, though I've never raced any of his offspring to date.  But what made this filly extra appealing to me is her dam: Daretoloveme, by the amazing gold stallion, Secret of Love, out of a MSW, multi-millionaire mare.  And like Intrepid's dam, though she's only a multi-winner, she also earned a speed record in 5f turf.

Hyde Park is a weanling filly by silver rated GCh. Highland Laird and out of Ch. Central Park, a MSP Highland Bandit daughter.  I'm hoping the double dose of Rogue does her lots of good, especially as it is more distant and through two lines of proven runners.

Las Vegas Strip is a weanling colt by Bellagio, who has already earned a silver rating with his first crop of 2YOs, which includes one of our best 2YO fillies, Coquette.  Naturally, I am now drawn to his babies.  But LVS also happens to be out of a multi-winning mare who has earned two speed records - over flat and hurdles - and has produced almost all winners (and a stakes winner).  To me, that hints at talent, but I suppose only time will tell.  I'm hoping that Bellagio will infuse some 2YO talent into the mix.

I am very, very happy with the results of this auction - and the incredibly minor $5,000 dent in my bank account.

Picked up five for $1k each.

Escort (Holy Bull (B) x Ch. Las Vegas) is the first out of her dam, who is a stakes winner and stakes placed. I didn't have any foals from real life stallions until now.
formerly Unnamed

Hand Jive (NCh. The Fighting Fifty (B) x Dance Alone) caught my eye because he's a foal out of one of the broodmares I bought this year. She's a stakes placed create so may have producing potential, may not.
formerly Fight Alone

Jameson (NCh. Gimme A Shot (S) x Ch. Angel of Whimsy) is out of a stakes winner create. I was so shocked to find out that this name wasn't taken!
formerly Unnamed

Midnight Stage (Tiznow (B) x Ch. Otta Be Jazz) is out of a mare with an impressive record: multi-stakes winner, multi-stakes placed, millionaire! I was surprised I didn't have to fight anyone for this guy.
formerly Unnamed

Sain Et Sauf (NCh. Bellagio (S) x Ch. Hermoine (B)) is out of a mare who reached champion without any success in stakes. Unfortunately, none of her children have success in stakes yet either. Counting on them being late bloomers!
I didn't rename this guy, and I'll have to research what saint this is.

I have bought 30 horses this year!! :o I might have to cool it next year. The extra time in college vs. high school has made me go completely crazy. Luckily, I bought most of those 30 horses for the above indicated price, and some have proven an impressive investment!

Picked up four more, because why not.

Point Given (S) x A Tip = Tip Your Waitress

Simply Heroic (B) x Didgamissme = Lone Ranger

Dixie Time x Mezzo Soprano = Whistling Dixie

Smart Strike (B) x Open Bid = Smart Bid

Four more babies for under $15K. Not too shabby. Let's hope they can back most of that. ;)

I picked up five more for a total of ten. This was a great opportunity to add numbers to our stable.

The last five we added were:

Impressive Angel - yearling filly
Ch Mr Townsend (B) x Connoisseur (Who Says (B))
Who Says is a Silver ranked broodmare sire and Connoisseur wasn't a terrible runner herself.

Jetinwith Kennedy - yearling filly
Ch Mr Townsend (B) x Westside Story (West Wind (S))
Westside Story was also a decent runner with good longetivity. Her sire West Wind is another silver ranked broodmare sire. I'm not a fan of the name and will probably change it.

Influential Secret - yearling filly
NCh Government Secret x Affluenza
Her dam is stakes placed, this is her first filly.

And since we had grabbed so many yearlings, I thought I could spare for some weanlings

Unnamed - weanling filly
Oscillation (B) x Ch Kids Choice (create)
First foal from her SW MSP dam.

Unnamed - weanling filly
NCh Nobly Regal x Say Goodnight (b) (create)
Half to three winners and a SW MSP filly.

Tons of fun. We got 8 yearlings (6 fillies 2 colts) and 2 weanling fillies for 21,500. Building up the future broodmare band :)

Dixie Time x Mezzo Soprano = Whistling Dixie

You'll need to rename her, as there's a Whistlin' Dixie in the game already.

Well, we didn't need anymore ponies but we got another 5 for $1000 a piece. Only one yearling though so we're mostly playing a waiting game with these.

Ooh La La Sneak Peek (B) x Kelly's Classic (I'm A Classic) caught my attention as I really like Sneak Peek even though he's not the greatest stallion. Dam is MW, MP and has one foal prior to this one. Hoping she'll be consistent at allowance level.

The Great Pumpkin Boldness Shows (B) x Country Pumpkin (B) is our only yearling. We've had some success with our only Boldness Shows runner to date and the name's amusing if nothing else. Dam has six foals but only two have raced, both are winners

Brave Highlander Boldness Shows (B) x It's An Honour (Highland Pride) is a first foal for a W, MP dam. Although she only won a single race she was consistently OTB.

Silver Sixpence The Fighting Fifty (B) x Silver Story (B) (Silver Legend). Dam has 5 runners, all are winners. She's unplaced in one start herself but is a half-sister to the gold ranked dams of GCh Blue Emperess and GCh Quarren.

State Secret Government Secret x Act of Faith (Affirmed) 1st foal for MW, MP dam. Sire is retired but has done well with quite small crops.

And we added another five babies to our stable for $1k each again, bring total horses purchased in 2016 to 35. I was pretty strict with only buying little ones for $1k so that I wouldn't overspend.

Pentagram (Octagonal (B) x Ch. Just One Thing (B)) is out of a stakes placed mare. I was also still aiming for real life studs to increase variety around my stable.
formerly Gee Me Look Awsome

Fission (NCh. Government Secret (B) x Impact On Tigers) is out of a monster 17.3h mare. This should be a tall one when she grows up.
formerly Lady Tigress

Ascension (NCh. Black Warrior x Meant To Be (B)) has nothing necessarily remarkable about her, but I was drawn to her because I do not have any Black Warrior babies and I really needed more girls.
formerly Futuristic

Vacancy (NCh. Void (B) x Dixie Festival (B)) is out of a mare who might have had a better racing career if she had started running sooner. I was really interested in a baby by Void too.
formerly Unnamed

Epilogue (ICh. Stressed (B) x At World's End) is not out of a remarkable mare either, but I wanted someone by Stressed.
I didn't rename this guy because his name is already my style.

Well, 1k is just so cheap for these pretty little babies so we got a couple, too. :)

Devil's Star (ICh. Devil His Due X February Star)
Cute little Devil weanling. Thought I'd give her a fair start on the track.

Go Getter (GCh. Harvard Bound (B) X Click On Go(B))
Not the most impressive breeding but mom has produced 2 winners so far.  He's a 15.2H liver chestnut yearling that just caught our eye. 

It's fun to pick them up at the end and see if they end up being superstars. :)
