How'd You Do? 2016
« on: December 02, 2012, 01:55:33 am »
Four foals for less than $20K. Hoorah! A fifth is on her way.

An unnamed filly by Rock of Gibraltar (B) out of Ch. Behind the Mask (S) was nabbed for $1K. She's been named Invincible.

Another unnamed filly by ICh. Prince of Wonder (S) out of Ch. Associated Press was picked up for the very reasonable sum of $1K. She's been named Indian Princess, in honor of her maternal granddam and grandsire.

A filly by WCh. Strider (G) out of Queen Robyn for $15.5K. She's been named Westernesse, the native kingdom of Aragorn in Lord of the Rings.

A colt by Sun King out of Crimson Chance (S), who we've named (appropriately) Crimson Sun.

I purchased 5 for $74,000. Not too shabby!

Waving Octopus by Octagonal (B) out of Colors Waving (G). We purchased this yearling filly because of her dam, Octopus is 1/2 to NCh. Aptitude and SP Pandora's Box. Octagonal's first foals hit the track this year, they haven't really proven themselves yet. Oh, and I loved his name too :)
Purchase Price: $50,500

Unnamed by NCh. Golden Text out of Keeta (S). Can't believe how cheap I got this filly, Golden Text doesn't have any foals running yet but he's out of A.P. Indy who I love and he was a fantastic runner. Keeta has had some really nice running foals including GCh. Marble Man and SW Kaneseatt. Shes been named Akita
Purchase Price: $1000

Unnamed[/color] by ICh. Sixth Day and out of Ch. Milestone. His dam and sire aren't proven yet as they dont have any running foals yet but I was looking at the lineage further down. Sixth Day is out of Planet Hollywood (great stally) and the GCh. Platinum rated mare Carbon Copy, cant ask for a better mare then that! His dam, Milestone is out of NCh. Lucky Cigar (G) and the silver rated mare Happy Holidays. I this the hollywood lines crossed with the cigar lines should produce a rockin foal. He has been named Mile A Minute
Purchase Price: $20,500

Unnamed[/color] by FFCh. High Chances (S) and out of Trust. Her sire is the reason I purchased this filly, her sire has thrown some great foals and his stud fee is $25,000, making this purchase price a really really good deal. Her dam is a create, heres hoping she throws good running foals! She has been named Tried and True
Purchase Price: $1000

Black Lotus[/color] by NCh. Black Light II and out of Lotus Blade. Honestly, I loved her name so I bought her! With that said I am really interested to see how Black Light's foals will run, I dont have any horses by him. Her dam is a created mare who never raced so its a shot in the dark how her foals will be. Fingers crossed!
Purchase Price: $1000

I wanted this one! At least I own Pandora's Box  ;D good luck with her!
So far I purchased two fillies, yearling and weanling. Both have been renamed already.

Vera Cruz - a 2016 filly by NCh. Conflagration, out of Ch. Sailor's Girl. She adds some unique bloodlines to our herd. Her granddam GCh. Dark Princess has a 2000 Eclipse Award for 3yo filly.

Hermelinda - 2015 filly by Holy Bull, out of Ch. Art of Song. Her dam is multiple stakes placed, Grade 1 and 2. We only have one other filly by Holy Bull.

Just one buy so far for 1k, an unnamed filly by Rock of Gibraltar out of Dream Girl. She is half to a MSW and her dam is a reine de course, the only horse in the game to have s/p, now just to figure out what that means Haha ::). Although her sire is bronze his first crop only ran this year so I am keen to see how they go next year!

S is "solid" and P is "professional", but it basically means they lean towards slow for long distances rather than super fast in sprints.

Secured four from the original wish list, for $1000 each. Really pleased as they've all got IMHO lovely pedigrees, each descending from my favourite lines in the FF stud book. They're all previously unnamed weanlings so we'll have to wait a while until their ready to run.

Masquerade Ball NCh Formal Occasion x Moonlight (Time Bomb)
May 28, 1st foal for a MW, MP mare. Dam is out of Timeless Wiccan (G) making her half sister to eight stakes level performers including NCh Always In Demand, GCh Salem and GCh Western Magic.

Private Dancer ICh Magic Glory (S) x Secret Promises (Silver Secrets (G))
Feb 15, 1st foal for SW mare, a daughter of Dance For Me, herself a daughter of RDC mare Dance at Dawn. We already have Dance For Me and her daughter Peep Show and couldn't pass on another family member. Her sire seems quite nice and brings some new lines for us.

Trapeze Tiznow (B) x Upstage Dancer (S) (Northern Slew)
Apr 27, 7th foal and so far only filly for her dam. Half sister to our own GCh Baringa, much loved here at GB. Despite her sire's quite poor record we're very pleased to have her. Upstage Dancer is herself a half sister to our platinum ranked brood Crowd Pleaser.

War of Words War Chant (B) x Ch Primrose (Northern Dancer)
Jan 30, another first foal for a MSW dam. Primrose is a daughter of gold-ranked Rosebud, dam of ICh What's Your Point. The wider family includes ICh Witness. War Chant seems to produce quite consistent runners.

For the first time ever, we picked out ponies that no one else wanted, and walked away with 3 babies (probably 3 more than we needed :P) for $3,000 total. If any of these boys do well, it may be our most profitable auction.

Off The Charts is a yearling son of ICh. Take Me Away (B) and Chart Topper (created). His dam was sporadically raced (by Final Furlong) at ages 4, 5, and 6, and still managed a few wins and a stakes place. Her first foal, a filly by War Chant, is unplaced to date, but also under FF management. This boy's a good size (16.1h) so we're hoping he does well next year.

Metalkprettyoneday is a weanling son of Octagonal (B) and Ch. Subject to Learn (by GCh. Harvard Bound). He's the first foal of his dam, who was a multiple stakes winner on the track. He's named after the David Sedaris book, because David Sedaris is awesome.

Devil Incarnate is a weanling son of Octagonal (B) and Soul Action (B) (created). His dam was stakes placed on the track, and his big sister is a winner on the track.

Octagonal's been good to us so far, so we're hoping these boys at least earn back their purchase price, and then some. ;)

Picked up four for a whopping $14,500  ;D.

Revenge of the Cat, ICh. Alley Cat (B) x Ch. Avenging Angel, by Magic Man (B) (but 4.7 Silver as a broodmare sire).
I'm pretty leery of the Alley Cat's because they tend to not run straight but now and again you'll have a good one. Revenge of the Cat has a high DI and his dam is half to A Reason to Love (dam of 2 MSW's). Magic Man's 10 daughters have also produced MSW NCh. Black Light II and MSW Ch. Rocket Smoke (whom I own). Plus I liked his name and he's a dapple gray which I'm a sucker for.

Storm the Castle, Giant's Causeway (B) x American Graffiti (B), by NCh. Killing Time (S)
Formerly named Flames Golden Cross. I wanted a Giant's Causeway and really liked this girl. American Graffiti only has 3 racing-age foals but one is unraced, a 2nd only made 2 starts at 2 and has been inactive since 2015, and her one active runner is a SW. American Graffiti is also out of American Chance (G), dam of NCh. Diplomat, Home Fries (G), and GCh. Higher Agenda.

Star Spangled, NCh. Starz 'n' Stripes (S) x Apple Pie, by A.P. Indy (S)
Formerly named All American Girl. I like Starz 'n' Stripes but only had 1 other horse from his line (via Starzen) so this girl definitely caught my eye! Tthe A.P. Indy/Starz 'n' Stripes cross has done fairly well between two runners and Apple Pie is out of Sugary Lips (G).

Greysteil, NCh. Nobly Regal x Goforburst (S), by Highland Rogue (P)
I typically avoid weanlings but I really, really wanted this boy. Nobly Regal is by Danzig (G) out of Delightful Natalie (G); Nobly Regal's first crop was born this year. Goforburst was a really consistent runner, hitting the board 15/19 times; she is out of Prospector's Gamble (G) dam of MSW's GCh. Cigar's Gamble and ICh. Clendon Park (G). Nobly Regal is half to GCh. Goforbust. Greysteil (graysteel) was a medieval poem from the 16th century. He was my most expensive boy at 11k.

Secured our final choice, somewhat more expensive than the other recruits @ $90000   :o
Still he's from AP Indy's last crop out of a stakes level mare by Seabiscuit.

Prohibition AP Indy x Rum Runner (Seabiscuit).
Feb 3, first foal for SW, MSP mare. Dam is out of the gold ranked Apple Pie.

All in all happy with what we've come home with.

And the last one is at the barn. I was thinking of this colt at the beginning, but then wanted another one, but that other colt was soon taken for the maximum price. So I looked back at the auction and this one remained unnoticed.

El Consuelo - I continue with the Spanish-themed names ;) - the name means "comfort", as I hope that he will be as good as the other colt. He's by Octagonal, and I only have one other weanling by this stud, a filly. El Consuelo's dam, Out of This, is a twin. Her sister's name is Out of That. Her sister also has a weanling foal, but not consigned to the auction. They are by Danzig (G), and we have none of his blood at Clicker Lab. Also, Out of That is stakes placed (Gr. 1) and has two speed records on dirt. So I think that this is a quite interesting pedigree and hopefully he'll be successful on the track. Purchased for $1,000.

Total spent: $12,500. Not bad for three horses.

He's named after the David Sedaris book, because David Sedaris is awesome.

Too true. :) I've met his sister a couple of times at parties in New York, and she's hysterical.
