I've had 5 for a few days, with some tentative bidding still ongoing.

With only 10 broodmares before the auction, my main goal was to add some quality broodmares to my stock (or some nice racing mares I can retire soon).

Ch. Metroid Fusion, an 8-year-old created broodmare with 4 stakes wins and 4 speed records, unproven as a producer as of yet, for $35,000.

My decision to purchase Tundra, a 9-year-old broodmare, was based more on her bloodline (Redwood Prince (G) x Klondike Gold (S)) than her race record, which is unimpressive overall.  However, she was clearly raced past her prime, and her 2-3 year old record is a lot stronger. $25,000.

Ch. Llano River (Irish River (G) x Texas Cowgirl (S)) is still racing as a 4-year-old, but depending on how she does on the track following a rest at the farm, she may be bred in the spring. In addition to her nice lines, she is MSP and made a speed record over 15f in January of this year.  $25,000.

(Gimmeashot (S) x Highland Sorceress (P)) is a bit young to be thinking of breeding yet, as she is only 3.  She is the last foal of her Platinum-ranked dam, who has produced 6 MSWs and 2 SWs.  As she's still 2 inches under her expected height, I'm hoping she still needs to mature, and I might see some stakes performance out of her.  Anyway, she's still NW2-eligible, so hopefully I'll at least be able to recoop some of my $64,000 purchase price - she was the most expensive horse I bought!

Finally, I picked up a yearling colt (Moonopoly (B) x Deborah), bringing up my yearling total to 3.  His dam is a MSW, and was purchased by Starfish at last year's select auction for $200k. He has been named Space Race. $31,000.
