Two more boys!
Jackdaw (Worth the Wait x Highland Debate) 9.0hh Dark Grey. Highland Debate was only raced as a FF mare as were all but 1 of her foals. The only privately owned and raced foal has had a good 2yo year. The others all did well, considering they were randomly raced. I'm hoping for good things from this colt.

Reis Magia (Long Live The King x Smooth Sorceress) 9.0hh Chestnut. His name is Catalan for Kings Magic. His dam was a very consistent mare. MSW and MSP, OTB at all distances and both turf and dirt. Hopefully he will also show the same versatility.

Two more babies!

Goldfinch (NCh. Golden Text x Lady Detective )Bay, 8.3hh. His sire has shown an impressive start to his stud career so far with 25% of his racing foals being MSW. I hope Goldfinch will follow in their footsteps.

Sapphire Rose (ICh. Devil His Due x Ch Urban Posy) 8.1hh. Blue Roan.She is named after my cat Chloe whose pedigree name is Sapphire Rose. The blue roan colour made it a perfect choice.  DHD was SW, MSW from 2 - 5. Posy was SW and MSP at 2 and 3 so I hope for early results from this foal. She has one other foal by Frankel

Another Girl :D
Tsarina (9.1h dark bay filly) FFCh. High Chances x NCh. Best Queen (Bold Ruler). This is the second foal of probably the best mare I have owned.Both parents liked shorter dirt and both surfaces so hopefully she will like the same.  I am so looking forward to see how she does on the track!

I have a mare who was due the 3rd, so I feel your pain! I think my March foals will arrive before this one does.

Very awesome foals. I'm waiting for your Nightfight foal in nervous anticipation.  He or She will be a gem.

At Last!
Dream Alone has finally had her foal 26 days late
Painted Dreams (NCh. Painted Raven x Ch. Dream Alone)9.1h Dark Bay colt.  first foal from this MSW, MSP mare. She was an SC specialist with speed records at 11 and 7.5f. I hope he will be a bit quicker on the racetrack than he was at putting in an appearance.
See Him Dance. (ICh. Witness x Ch. Jazz Dancer)9.0h bay colt. This one was also late, this time by 22 days. ::) Also a first foal for his dam, Jazz was SW and SP whose successes were all on turf. She visits NCh. Pay The Boatman next.

The boys are forging ahead!

Painted Devil (NCh Painted Raven x Devil's Mistress)8.2 black colt. He is almost identical to his half sister Devil's Magic. both are coal black with just a few white hairs on the coronet, painted devil on the LF and Magic on LH. Mum really loved racing over fences so she is visiting NCh lasting Spirit next.

My Nightfight baby has arrived :D

Waiting For Night (WCh. Nightfight x While we're Waiting) 9.3h black colt. Waiting for Night is the eighth living foal from this gold ranked mare. Half to GCh Secret Wishes, Ch. Battle On and Ch Must Be Patient. All her racing foals are at least stakes placed. This is the foal I have most eagerly awaited. Hopefully a future star.

And another boy!
Just arrived this morning - Crimson Flames (NCh. French Ruby x Approaching Fires) 9.3h Chestnut colt. 10th foal of this silver ranked mare. Half to GCh. Fire Chant. all but one of her foals are winners.

Two girls!

Chia (Ch. Mr Townsend x Moonshine) 9.1h liver chestnut.  Chia is named from a Columbian moon goddess.This was a real wild card breeding as i have never used Mr Townsend before and Moonshine is a created mare. She is now in foal to GCh. Mantle of Power

Meliae (NCh Dark Demand x Druantia)9.1 chestnut filly. rather flashy with 3 white socks and a stocking. Named after nymphs of the ash tree in greek mythology. Her dam was bought in foal from the Battle Hill auction and is half to WCh Brigade. She has only one racing foal who has been placed. Druantia is now in foal to WCh Crystal Rainbow.

after a quiet month, we had an early arrival.

Luck of the Angels (NCh. Lucky Streak x Guardian Angel) 9.3 blood bay filly. Bit of an unknown quantity this one. Guardian Angel was bred for me to my request by Morning Star farms when broodmares were as rare as hen's teeth and leasing was unknown. so she was one of "my" first foals even though I do not appear as her breeder.   I'm cutting down on my broodies so Guardian Angel will be up for sale.
