Thanks!  I'm a bit excited for them, but I'm partial.


One more!


SEA THE HUMOR - 7.2hh blood bay colt
SIRE: Sea the Stars (created)
DAM: Queen of Humor {B} (created)

This is the fifth foal from this 3-time speed record setting mare.  The first two (Comedy Queen & Smile Awhile) are winners.  I held onto this boy because I'm excited to see what Sea the Stars does as a sire.
QUEEN OF HUMOR has been sold to Marshall Creek Ranch.

Another healthy foal!


CIGNIFICANT - 9.1hh bay colt
SIRE: Ch. Magic Cross {S} (Cross Roads {S} x Highland Sorceress {P})
DAM: Cigarillo (Cigar {G} x ICh. Little Miss {G})

This is the first foal from this multi-winning mare.  She comes from a great pedigree, but was underraced.  I purchased her as a 6YO who hadn't won since age 3 (with only 3 starts at age 4, 0 starts at age 5, and 1 start at age 6).  I felt it was too late for her to make a name for herself on the track, but I'm hoping that her strong pedigree will carry over to the next generation.  The sire, Magic Cross, is one of my absolute favorites.  I tend to get MSWers out of him.
CIGARILLO is booked to our home stallion, Witness.

Two new babies, and two new fillies!  That helps even the odds a little...
Though it comes at a bittersweet cost, with a mare retirement...


SONG OF TRUTH - 8.3hh bay filly
SIRE: ICh. Witness {B} (Class Act {G} x Time For Truth {S})
DAM: Sovereign Song {S}

This foal is 1/2 to MSW Ch. Sovereign Glory and SW Ch. Brianza, the only two foals from this mare to race yet.  So far, she's proving to be QUITE the producer.  I'm excited to see what this guy can do.
SOVEREIGN SONG is visiting our other stallion, V is for Victory.


KLONDIKE FINALE - 9.3hh flea-bitten grey filly
SIRE: ICh. Witness {B} (Class Act {G} x Time For Truth {S})
DAM: Klondike Nights {S} (Black Knight {S} x Klondike Gold {S})

This foal is 1/2 to MSWers GCh. Coquette (4yo f) & Ch. Allnighter II (3yo f).  She looks a lot like her dam.  Unfortunately, Klondike Nights has unexpectedly been forced to retire due to health complications.  Thankfully, I own several daughters who will someday replace her in the shed, but it's still a tough bit of news to accept.
KLONDIKE NIGHTS is retiring.  :(

A "top stable"...?  :o
I hadn't considered myself one of those!  I guess I still picture my "little" farm as one of the newer underdogs, even though I've been here for years now.  I'm a long, long way from the legacy most of the REALLY big name stables have created.  But that's an interesting perspective - and flattering.  :)  I hope I can get him to do you proud!


We got a lovely trio a couple days ago.  Apparently they all wanted to arrive together.


WISH COME TRUE - 9.1hh blue roan colt
SIRE: WCh. As You Wish {S} (WCh. Secret of Love {G} x NCh. Cross My Heart {G})
DAM: It's All Yours (Forget It {G} x Fondly Yours {B})

This handsome colt is the third foal (and third colt) from this multi-stakes placed mare.  The first foal is owned by FF, so who knows when he will have his first start.  It may be a while 'til we have any idea how this mare produces, but I'm hoping the 3 gold-rated grandparents shine through...
IT'S ALL YOURS is visiting Blue Smoke this year.



HOLDIN' THE GUN - 9.0hh dark grey filly
SIRE: ICh. Spock {B} (ICh. Highland Magic {S} x Somethin' Smokin {G})
DAM: Murder By Numbers (Run For It {S} x CrossTheThreshold {G})

This is the third foal (and first filly) from this multi-stakes placed mare.  She is the first daughter to take her dam's famous place in our brood band after her retirement.  (Her dam was our first gold-rated broodmare.)
MURDER BY NUMBERS is visiting Witness this year.



ZODIAC THEATER - 8.2hh grey filly
SIRE: GCh. Galaxy's Zodiac (GCh. High On Love {S} x GCh. Dream Skipper {G})
DAM: Theatrical Lady (created)

This is the third foal (and first filly) from this stakes placed mare.  Normally we prefer our broodmare candidates to have a little more prestige - in achievements and/or pedigree - but Theatrical Lady had a very solid, too-short 2YO year (she only ran 4X per year), and we think we can use her early maturity to influence our future generations.  Time will tell!  Her first foal, Oedipus Rex, seems to be mature and is in training now...
THEATRICAL LADY is visiting V is for Victory next.

DIRTY MARTINI - 10.0hh dapple grey colt
SIRE: NCh. Slip in the Mud {B} (created)
DAM: Ch. Manhattan Melody {S} (What's It Worth {P} x Cocktails At Eight {S})

This colt was bred by Stillwater Farms and purchased in-utero with the dam.  He is 1/2 to SW Ch. Songcatcher and SP Party Doll.
MANHATTAN MELODY will visit Witness this year.

Another colt!


WAR IS HELL - 9.2hh mahogany bay colt
SIRE: NCh. Dark Demand {B} (Black Knight {S} x In Demand {G})
DAM: War Cat {B} (created)

I'm excited to see such a tall, handsome colt from this cross.  This is our second foal from this sprinter mare (and her fifth total foal).  He is 1/2 to SP The Last Secret, owned by Renegade Racing and Breeding.  The other two are owned by FF.  He is, of course, named after the famous quote.
WAR CAT is visiting Lasting Spirit in hopes he'll help her throw a good 2yo runner.

A filly!

THAT'S SO TRUE - 8.2hh dark grey filly
SIRE: ICh. Witness {B} (Class Act {G} x Time For Truth {S})
DAM: That's So Funny (created)

This is the fourth foal from this very tall, multi-winning mare.  The first, now 3, STILL hasn't hit in his projected height range.  We started him as a late 2yo (December), and he broke his leg in the same month during a tragic workout - WALKING.  Her 2yo filly is nearly at her projected height, but we're not taking any chances this time around.  She's still a pasture ornament until she matures a bit more, just to be safe.  Witness also tends to throw late bloomers, so I expect this one to sit out her 2yo year, most likely.  Hopefully she is worth the wait.
THAT'S SO FUNNY is visiting Sleipnir this year, who was a MSW at 2yo.

It's been a busy couple of weeks in RL (I'll explain that in a later post), but in the meantime, we have 5 new babies to announce.  Somehow, they're all boys...but healthy!


SUNRAY - 8.2hh grey colt
SIRE: Sun King (created)
DAM: Ch. Runaway Angel (created)

This boy is a gamble based on his created pedigree.  Dad's first crop is just hitting the tracks this spring, as is mom's first foal (eventually, we assume).  Dad didn't race in-game, but mom is a MSW who set a whopping 5 speed records, mainly on sprints.  Needless to say, we're curious about how this boy turns out!
RUNAWAY ANGEL is visiting Witness next, since he likes to throw long distance runners.  Hopefully they'll meet in the middle!



HONEST FOX - 8.2hh bay colt
SIRE: ICh. Witness {B} (Class Act {G} x Time For Truth {S})
DAM: Lucky Fox (Gallant Fox {B} x Here's To Luck {S})

This is the third foal from his dam, who was lightly raced, but still set 3 speed records.  Both mom & dad liked longer distances, so we expect that this boy probably will, too.
LUCKY FOX is visiting V is for Victory next.



KEMISTREE - 8.1hh light bay colt
SIRE: FFCh. High Chances {G} (GCh. Highland Laird {S} x Second Chance {P})
DAM: Fizzix {S} (Seabiscuit {S} x Delicate Subject {S})

This colt is 1/2 to SP Xcientist.  His dam seems to throw late bloomers, and High Chances is known for get that don't blossom 'til 3 or later, so we're probably looking at another one.  But hopefully, when he does finally find his feet, it will have been worth the wait.
FIZZIX has been sold to Marshall Creek Ranch.



UPSWING - 8.2hh chestnut colt
SIRE: WCh. Drum Major (GCh. High On Love {S} x Rapunzel {G})
DAM: Uptown Girl {G} (created)

This colt is 1/2 to MSW Ch. Queen Catarina, SW Ch. Goodnight Saigon, and SW Ch. Newyorknewyork.  The dam is one of our most successful producers right now, so we're super excited to see a healthy foal on the ground.  He's got quite the big shoes to fill someday!
UPTOWN GIRL is visiting Witness next.



CLASSIC ROCK - 9.1hh bay colt
SIRE: ICh. Witness {B} (Class Act {G} x Time For Truth {S})
DAM: Ch. Classic Irish (NCh. I'm A Classic {S} x Ch. Celtic Mist {S})

This colt is bred 2x3 to Class Act.  His dam is a lightly raced SW, and dad is slowly proving himself in the breeding shed.  It will be interesting to see how this cross affects his talent in a couple years.
CLASSIC IRISH is visiting V is for Victory next.
