Horses For Sale / Generous' Auction
« on: August 11, 2018, 06:49:49 am »
As usual, I've collected a few too many ponies over the past 12 months so I'm holding a small auction, starting on the 18th of August. 45 horses consigned, a mixture of racehorses, broodmares and one or two yearlings. No reserves or purchasing limits.

Thanks for looking.

Annual Mixed Auction / How'd you do 2022?
« on: July 01, 2018, 10:06:16 am »
Waiting on one more but secured two of our first choices.

Faylinn. MSP daughter of Empire Maker out of GCh Lady Fae. Bred by Stillwater Farms, she's been purchased as a broodmare prospect. Lots of MSW in the wider family including NCh Lord Nelson and WCh Usain Bolt. Cost $1000.

Burning Galaxy. 2yo colt by Candidate out of a silver-ranked Lonesome Glory mare. Half to a MSW and a SW. Unplaced in his only start but early days yet. He was already at the track in England so he's taken the short ride back to the farm and he'll now have a bit of time to mature. Hopefully a nice prospect for the future. Cost $1000.

Annual 2yo Auction / 2022 2yo auction - How’d you do?
« on: March 11, 2018, 07:19:15 am »
Maxed out on the one purchase and was lucky enough to get my top choice (sorry Cat!).

COOL THUNDER
By Golden Text out of NCh Set The Sails (G) (What’s Debatable). Half brother to NCh Nightwatchman, GCh Set The Stride and stakes winners Bellagio’s Girl and Wind In My Sails. Both other half siblings to race are winners. The same sire/broodmare sire cross has produced NCh Damn U Autocorrect. Hopeful this little guy might have some talent on the track.
