Annual Select Auction / Re: 2022 Horses Consigned
« on: August 20, 2018, 09:32:22 pm »
I don't suppose we're allowed to know (roughly) what the reserves are?

Obviously we will find out when we start bidding, buuuut no harm in asking ahead of time, lol.

Decided to take a chance with my filly, Catullus. She was 2nd last out in the G2 Dwyer Stakes and has faired well at 8-9f on both turf and dirt. Fingers crossed this isn't a huge mistake, lol.

Thanks, Shanthi! I'm curious how much I'm No Fool will earn :D

I'm very tempted but I know it's a trap, haha. I'll be curious to see how that bidding war goes.

General/Questions / Re: Happy Retirement, Silver Wizard!
« on: August 06, 2018, 02:49:18 pm »
I'm so sad to see him retire! And so young at 13. We own 7 foals by him including Ch. Silver Cat, an ungraded winner and G2-placed chaser who will likely join our broodmare band for next year, a 2yo winner in High South who ran 5th in a G1 last out, and several other 2yo's who are just now getting to the track for training. However, we do have FOUR mares in foal to him for next year so at least we have that to look forward to!
