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.

I've done the "pick cool names" thing before and it's worked pretty well.

All of the above. I must have tried five times to type in ImLateImLateImLate and had to keep going back to delete the apostrophes. All good now though, I changed his name :)

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. ;)
