Nice babies. Love the names, especially Fleur Delacour.

Five more - all fillies!  The colts have won each year for several years now, so I'm always extra excited to see fillies!

We never seem to have a problem with breeding fillies as they have outnumbered the colts every year from 2016 onwards (in fact, we have almost 3 times as many fillies as colts so far this year). Want to trade??? LOL!

Lewis, I would GLADLY trade for fillies from your amazing breeding program.  LOL  Don't tempt me!

I've been incredibly inactive lately (kiddo is nearly on the move, then all hope may be lost for me for a while, I fear).  Add into the mix a promotion at work, and free time is hard to come by.  This week's staycation with my little girl has offered me a little bit of time, at least.  The rest of the free time will have to be aimed at job hunting - something with less of a commute and more regular hours, I hope.

Meanwhile, my breeding staff has been BUSY, it seems.  Please allow me to introduce:

Feb 26:
WINDY CITY - 10.3hh black filly
SIRE: Ch. Magic Cross {S} (Cross Roads {S} x Highland Sorceress {P})
DAM: Evanescence {S} (Seattle Slew {S} x In Effect {G})

This is the sixth foal from this MSP mare, but our first, purchased in utero.  1/2 to SP Fool Me Once.  Named for our recent trip to Chicago to visit family.

Mar 2:
DELIVER THE STORM - 10.0hh bay filly
SIRE: ICh. V is for Victory {S} (GCh. Jazz It Up {G} x Dark Victory {P})
DAM: Ch. Pegasus Pride (Tiznow {B} x Ch. Knight's Mystery {G})

Mar 5:
STELLAR VICTORY - 9.3hh liver chestnut filly
SIRE: ICh. V is for Victory {S} (GCh. Jazz It Up {G} x Dark Victory {P})
DAM: I'm a Star {S} (created)

This is the fifth foal from this SP mare.  She's a full sibling to SP V is for Valiant, who broke his leg at 2 and is just making a comeback to the track.

Mar 10:
SPORTSTRESS - 10.1hh chestnut filly
SIRE: ICh. V is for Victory {S} (GCh. Jazz It Up {G} x Dark Victory {P})
DAM: Ch. Kiasport {S} (created)

Mar 16:
SEA OF GALILEE - 9.1hh bay colt
SIRE: Sea The Stars (created)
DAM: ICh. What's Your Dream {S} (What's It Worth {P} x Ch. Sweet Dreams {G})

Mar 19:
STEALTH - 9.1hh black colt

Sadly, after looking into our foaling record a bit more, I've realized that we also lost two fillies:

unnamed filly
SIRE: ICh. V is for Victory {S} (GCh. Jazz It Up {G} x Dark Victory {P})
DAM: Oh So Sharp {G} (Dr. Time {B} x Sweet Escapes {S})

March 9.  I'm really upset at losing a foal from this mare, especially a filly.  She would have been 1/2 to MSW Ch. Oh So Proud, SW Chicago's Demon, SP Ch. Oh So Famous, and SP Ponte Vecchio.  Thankfully, mom seems to be doing well and has been bred to Ducati for next year.


unnamed filly
SIRE: NCh. Bellagio {B} (Lonesome Glory {S} x Foolish Question {P})
DAM: GCh. Madd Karol (created)

March 10.  This is the second foal we've lost from 5 foals from this MSW mare.  She was one of my two starter horses, so she has an extra special place in my heart.  Darn the luck!  But again, mom seems fine and has been bred to Sleipnir.

Sorry for the loss of your fillies, especially from such nice mares. I hope their 2020 foals arrive safe and sound.

A Derby-day arrival:


NOTRE DAME - 9.3hh bay filly
SIRE: ICh. V is for Victory {S} (GCh. Jazz It Up {G} x Dark Victory {P})
DAM: Ch. Classic Irish (NCh. I'm A Classic {G} x Ch. Celtic Mist {S})

The name 'fighting Irish' was already taken, so I gave her the next best thing.  Fourth foal (first filly) from this SW/SP mare.

Three more!

POLYNESIAN PRINCE - 8.3hh flea-bitten grey colt
SIRE: NCh. In The Navy (Man O'War {S} x Dayatthebeach {G})
DAM: Mai Tai Princess (Almost Home {S} x Family Secrets {B})

This is the second foal from this multi-winning mare who set a speed record for 11f dirt at age 3 - the reason she's in our breeding program.  Her sire, while impressive, did better as he aged, so we're expecting a late bloomer.

UPTOWN FUNK - 8.2hh dark bay filly
SIRE: ICh. Witness {B} (Class Act {G} x Time For Truth {S})
DAM: Uptown Girl {G} (created)

This is the seventh foal from this multi-winning mare. 1/2 to MSW Ch. Queen Catarina, MSW Ch. Newyorknewyork, and SW Ch. Goodnight Saigon.  I couldn't resist the name!

VIVACIOUS FOX - 9.0hh black filly
SIRE: ICh. V is for Victory {S} (GCh. Jazz It Up {G} x Dark Victory {P})
DAM: Lucky Fox {S} (Gallant Fox {B} x Here's To Luck {S})

This is the fourth foal (and first filly) from this multi-winning mare.
