Last year saw us standing our first stallion for his first full season, so we look forward to welcoming several Witness babies.
Last season was incredibly colt-heavy, so we'll see what this season will bring!

We started out with a pretty filly on the first:

ROYAL WEDDING - 8.0hh dark grey filly
SIRE: ICh. Witness {B} (Class Act {G} x Time For Truth {G})
DAM: Must Be Royal (GCh. Must Be Magic {S} x Ch. Jungle Queen {S})

This little filly is the third from her dam.  The first, a Bellagio filly, will run this spring.  The name seemed fitting, as it is certainly something "royal" that we all would like to "witness".
MUST BE ROYAL visits Animal Kingdom next.



Today, three more joined us:

DEVILMADEMEDOIT - 9.3hh chestnut colt
SIRE: NCh. Carrowmore (Ch. Irish River {S} x Dark Miss {P})
DAM: Devil's Dream (NCh. Devil May Care {S} x Ch. Hope's Dream {B})

This colt is the second from his dam, though the first foal was bred & is owned by Lochiedo.  He's a well-bred, strapping colt, though.
DEVIL'S DREAM visits Sixth Day next for a similar cross as that which produced MSW Ch. Volkl.


JEWELED CROSS - 9.1hh dark bay filly
SIRE: Ch. Magic Cross {S} (Cross Roads {S} x Highland Sorceress {P})
DAM: Ch. Bold Jewel (Bold Ruler {G} x Queen's Jewel {S})

This is the second foal from the dam, and the sire is one of my favorites.
BOLD JEWEL visits V is for Victory next.


KERIAN IMAGE - 8.3hh bay filly
SIRE: ICh. Witness {B} (Class Act {G} x Time For Truth {G})
DAM: Ch. Keria Toon {S} (created)

This filly is 1/2 to MSW Ch. Singsong and the 2yo multi-winner, Pistolwhip.  The name was meant to connect the names - if you "witness" something, you will forever "carry an image" of that.
KERIA TOON visits Von Lichtenstein this year.


Also, we had a number of mares retire/broodmares we purchased who were not in foal who have been bred:

LUCKY IN LOVE (WCh. Secret Of Love {G} x Make Me Lucky {S}), a multi-winner, visits Witness.
MADAME JUSTICE (Lit de Justice {G} x Lade Be Good {S}), a multi-winner with a speed record, visits Witness.
Ch. WITH A FLEURISH (NCh. Gimme A Shot {S} x Fleur's Debate {G}), a MSW with 3 speed records, visits V is for Victory.
INTO THE VOID (The Black {G} x Opening Gala {B}), a multi-winner, visits Long Live the King for the sire/BM sire cross that produced MSW Ch. Repudiate.
Ch. FOXY RUBY (Gallant Fox {B} x Ch. Ruby Slippers {G}), a stakes placed mare with 3 speed records, visits Giant's Causeway for a technical 3/4 relation to MSW GCh. Sionnach.
GET SHORTY (Planet Hollywood {S} x Jazzanna {B}), a multi-winner, visits Magic Glory for the same sire/BM sire as MSW GCh. Triomphe.
Ch. INDYWIND (A.P. Indy {S} x Windinthewillows {B}), a multi-winner with 2 speed records, visits Strider for the same sire/BM sire as MSW NCh. Star Spun.
Ch. BANAFRIT (Ch. Magic Cross {S} x Egyptian Pharaoh {S}), a MSP mare with a speed record, visits My Lucky Day for a 50% relation to MSW GCh. Akhetnaten.
Ch. FIFTY NOT OUT (NCh. The Fighting Fifty {B} x Final Salute {B}), a stakes placed mare with a speed record, visits Witness.
MANGO FRAPPE (Sunday Silence {S} x Whimsical Victory {B}), a multi-winner with a speed record, visits V is for Victory.
LUCKY DUCKY (created), a multi-winner with 2 speed records, visits Witness.
Ch. RUTH SAGE (created), a stakes placed mare with a speed record, visits V is for Victory.

Two more healthy colts have arrived!


VINDICTIVE - 10.0hh bay colt
SIRE: ICh. Dr. Evil (Resident Evil {G} x Grande Finale {G})
DAM: Ch. Violet Haze (created)

This colt was bred by Fox Run.  It is the first foal from the dam, who was a multi-winner and set a speed record at age 3.
VIOLET HAZE is visiting All Jazzed Up this season.

FRANK'S A REBEL - 9.1hh brown colt
SIRE: Frankel (created)
DAM: Renegade Song (Cigar {G} x MissionControl {B})

This is the second foal from the dam, though the first was bred out on lease.  This colt is a bit of a gamble, but I'm hoping he figures out how to run.
RENEGADE SONG is visiting Edinburgh for a 2x3 cross to Cigar - fingers crossed.

Me too! I worked with a Hackney pony stud briefly named Vindication - thought that was a cool name, too.

One more boy:

FEELIN' WITTY - 8.1hh brown colt
SIRE: ICh. Witness {B} (Class Act {G} x Time For Truth {G})
DAM: I'm Feelin' Lucky (created)

This little colt is from a random pairing.  He is the first foal from the mare, who was very lightly raced through her career (an average of 3 starts per year), and thus doesn't have much to show for it.  Still, she finished in the top two 6 of 12 non-stakes starts from ages 2 to 6.

I'M FEELIN' LUCKY is visiting V is for Victory this year.

I've been a bit busy lately, and have had the most difficult time naming babies this year.  Don't be surprised if a name or two changes later, after I get more time to stare at it & decide if it truly "fits".   :P

Since my last post, our baby count has DOUBLED.   :o  Thankfully, everyone is healthy and happy so far.

On January 30th:

GHOSTHEART - 9.1hh bay colt
SIRE: Ghostzapper (Awesome Again {S} x created)
DAM: Ch. Heartless {S} (Affirmed {S} x Xena {B})

This is the 8th foal from this proven producer, though only the second for us.  This foal is 1/2 to MSW Ch. Imperial Gesture, SW Ch. Alybama, and SP Heartless Junction.
HEARTLESS visits Witness next.


On January 31st:

LOST BOY - 10.0hh blue roan colt
SIRE: NCh. Lucky Streak (Rahy {S} x Ch. Wild Streak {P})
DAM: Wendy {B} (Land Ho {S} x Dreams Never End {S})

This is the 6th foal from this stakes winning, multiple speed record setting mare.  Two of the three foals to race are very underraced, and the third is by a sire I've never had luck with, so I'm going to blame him.   :P  This is my first foal from her.
WENDY is visiting Candidate this year.


On February 2nd:

WATCH ME WHIRL - 8.1hh light bay filly
SIRE: ICh. Witness {B} (Class Act {G} x Time For Truth {G})
DAM: Ch. Twirlaway (Whirlaway {S} x Fondly Yours {B})

This is the first foal from this SW mare, so I'm excited to see how she does.
TWIRLAWAY visits V is for Victory next.


On February 6th:

AT LAST - 8.1hh black filly
SIRE: ICh. Witness {B} (Class Act {G} x Time For Truth {G})
DAM: Etta James (GCh. Jazz It Up {G} x Prosperous Cheater {S})

This is the second foal (first for us) from this multi-winning, speed record holding mare.  I'm anxious to see how she turns out.
ETTA JAMES visits TakeMeToHollywood for the same sire/BM sire cross as MSW GCh. Taking Vegas.


On February 7th:

SOMMELIER - 9.2hh dark bay colt
SIRE: ICh. Count Me In {S} (Count Fleet {S} x Ch. Highland Dreamer {G})
DAM: Syrah (Bold Ruler {G} x A Splash of Color {B})

This is the first foal from this multi-winning, speed record holding Bold Ruler daughter.  Add in his sire, who is making a name for himself, and I have high hopes for this big boy.
SYRAH visits Lord Nelson this year.


On February 8th:

METROPOLITAN - 9.1hh bay colt
SIRE: ICh. Witness {B} (Class Act {G} x Time For Truth {G})
DAM: Ch. Cosmopolitan (A.P. Indy {S} x Drink Til Hes Cute {B})

This is the third foal (and third colt) from this SW mare.  Her 2yo colt by Gunningdownromance is owned by Pruchna, so we will be watching his career with interest.
COSMOPOLITAN is visiting King David this year as both her sire- and damlines seem to do well with him.


FOREIGN DEBATE - 9.2hh blue roan colt
SIRE: NCh. Lucky Streak (Rahy {S} x Ch. Wild Streak {P})
DAM: Fleur's Debate {G} (WCh. What's Debatable {S} x Fleur de Lis {S})

This is the 5th live foal we've gotten from this mare.  He's 1/2 to MSW Ch. With A Fleurish and multi-winner Ch. Mood Indigo.
FLEUR'S DEBATE visits Worthy Victor this year for a distant pedigree cross relation to MSW NCh. Nightshade.

She's probably my favorite from that batch, too, just based on her name.  She was the easiest to name!

And now we have another girl to introduce:

PROSE EDDA - 8.3hh dark bay filly
SIRE: ICh. Sleipnir {B} (NCh. Lucky Cigar {G} x NCh. You Belong {G})
DAM: Holiday Joy (Northern Dancer {B} x Ch. Titian {B})

This is the first foal from the dam, a multi-winner.  The dam wasn't started until age 3, but had a respectable OTB percent for ages 3 & 4.  I had planned to run her more before retiring her, but I ended up with an open booking to Sleipnir that I didn't want to miss and no unbooked broodmares.  Fingers crossed on this one.  But she is named after the main source of knowledge about Norse mythology (and, by default, religion/holidays).
HOLIDAY JOY is visiting Witness next.

Two new babies have arrived:


SHARPSIGHT - 9.1hh bay colt
SIRE: ICh. Witness {B} (Class Act {G} x Time For Truth {G})
DAM: Oh So Sharp {G} (Dr. Time {B} x Sweet Escapes {S})

I'm so glad to have a healthy foal from our gold-rated mare.  This makes him 1/2 to MSW Ch. Oh So Proud, SW Chicago's Demon, & SP Ch. Oh So Famous.  I suspect he'll be a late bloomer (from both sides of his pedigree), but he ought to be worth the wait.
OH SO SHARP is visiting the in-house stallion, V is for Victory, next.



MARCH ON - 9.1hh dark bay filly
SIRE: WCh. Strider {G} (Highland Rogue {P} x Seeing Starz {P})
DAM: GCh. Madd Karol (created)

This is another foal I am excited about.  This is the 3rd live foal from this MSW mare.  The oldest, 2yo VOIR DIRE by Sixth Day, will start this spring.  She was one of my two starter horses, which adds to the excitement of this foal.  Then, having the famous Strider as a sire doesn't hurt, either.
MADD KAROL is coming stateside to visit Bellagio, a sire we've had amazing luck with.

Another colt!


BRAVO WORTHY - 9.2hh dark bay colt
SIRE: ICh. Worth The Wait {S} (What's It Worth {P} x Rise and Shine {S})
DAM: Bravodora {S} (created)

This is the fourth foal from this stakes winning, 3 time speed record setting mare.  He is 1/2 to the multi-winner, Vive le Roi.
BRAVODORA is visiting the in-house stallion, Witness, this year.

Two more!


NAVAL PORT - 9.0hh grey colt
SIRE: NCh. In The Navy (Man O'War {S} x Dayatthebeach {G})
DAM: Ch. Kiasport {S} (created)

Fourth foal (and fourth colt) from this stakes winning dam, and from his sire's first crop.  He is 1/2 to MSW Ch. Sportsmanship, one of our better 2YOs last year.  I'm excited for this one.
KIASPORT is visiting the in-house stallion, V is for Victory.


CANDID STAR - 8.3hh dark bay filly
SIRE: ICh. Candidate {G} (What's It Worth {P} x Dark Magic {P})
DAM: I'm a Star {S} (created)

This is the fourth foal from this stakes placed dam, and the sire has proven himself to be one of the best.  She is 1/2 to V is for Valiant, who won two of his three starts, before tragically breaking his leg in a freak accident.  He is on the mend, though, and will be tested again late in his 3YO year.
I'M A STAR is coming back to see V is for Victory for a full sibling to Valiant.
