General/Questions / Stallion Spotlight June I: Silver Wizard
« on: May 16, 2018, 01:55:43 am »
RL has been really busy this month, so Willa may or may not hit you with a second Spotlight. We are calling this the first spotlight and if we have a second, yay! If not, we will return to our usual 1st/15th postings in June.

Stallion Spotlight: May I

 NCh. Silver Wizard
2009 gray Thoroughbred stallion, 17.0hh
NCh. Highland Wizard x Silver Wind
[view]

CAREER
Bred by Final Furlong, Silver Wizard was first purchased by Lochiedo Stables as a 2yo, then sold to The Grey Stable when his oldest crop turned three, and Denoux Stables purchased him in March of last year. On the track he won the G1 Santa Anita Derby, G2 Planet Hollywood Breeders' Stakes, G2 Phar Lap Stakes, and G3 events Cadbury Tasmanian Derby, Queen's Cup, and Secretariat Breeders' Stakes. He hit the board in the G1 Arlington Classic, Doncaster Handicap, Cigar Breeders' Stakes, and Highland Bandit Breeders' Stakes. He scored stakes races at every distance, with most of his earnings coming at the classic distance with 66% OTB, but he also averaged a 65% OTB at sprints. He won over $1 million on both turf and dirt, with his best year coming at three.

During his career he beat stallions Dark Demand, Conflagration, and Sixth Day.

INJURY HISTORY
After four seasons on the track, Silver Wizard retired completely sound.

LINEAGE
His sire, HIGHLAND WIZARD, had 164 foals, 55 stakes winners and 27 MSW’s including NCh. Celtic Foxx, NCh. Sacred Hill (dam of stallion ICh. City Upon A Hill), NCh. Banner Raised, GCh. Strike Your Fancy, GCh. Spell Breaker, GCh. Caledonian, GCh. Lady Fae, and G1 Dubai World Cup winner Ch. Touch of Magic. Highland Wizard has produced platinum-ranked Ch. Coco Diablo, 3 gold-ranked daughters, 4 silver-ranked, and 19 bronze. Silver Wizard is the only direct son of Highland Wizard to stand at stud.

His dam SILVER WIND, produced 12 foals, 10 winners, and 3 stakes winners. In additional to Silver Wizard, she also produced MSW Ch. Wingsonmyhooves (Bronze). Her other winners include SW Ch. A.P. Silver Stars (Bronze), SP’s Mountain Air (Bronze) and Ch. Run For Silver. She also produced multi-winner Cool Breeze, a gold-ranked mare and dam of MSW/multi-millionaire GCh. Undercover Agent. Her only non-winners are FF-owned, and one is retired.

SIRE RECORD
At the time of this post, Silver Wizard is BRONZE ranked with his oldest foals being seven. Silver Wizard has sired 8 crops with 56% starters, 47% winners, and 11% stakes winners. He has sired 3 MSW’s, including 1 millionaire.

Out of 68 current stallions w/ started offspring:
  • 36th in highest winning percentage of offspring
  • 19th in offspring earnings
  • 35th in highest G1-placed offspring
  • 15th in highest G1-winning offspring

Leading Earners
  • CH. MOLTEN METAL ($1,013,000), G1 Manikato Stakes, G2 Fourstardave Handicap, 2nd G1 Breeders' Cup Mile, G1 Queen Elizabeth II Stakes, etc.
  • CH. SILVER ROSES ($626,950), 2nd G2 Queen of the Turf Stakes, G2 Sunline Stakes, etc.
  • CH. SILVER DREAMS ($623,600), G2 Palos Verdes Handicap, G2 Wonder Where Stakes, G3 Teso Stakes, 2nd G1 Irish Oaks Stakes, etc.
  • CH. COPPER BEECH ($472,450), 2nd G2 Del Mar Derby, 3rd G1 Del Mar Oaks, G3 Rose of Kingston Stakes.
  • CH. SON O’ MINX ($376,150), G1 Eclipse Stakes.

Foals for Thought
Looking at his 3 MSW’s and all 13 SW foals, almost all had their best year at 3, with a few excelling at 3 and 4 and one foal hitting their best at two. Vast majority have performed best at sprint distances, with 10 of the 13 having majority sprint OTB placings. Of the 13, 5 have stretched to middle distance with 50% or higher OTB, and 3 at long distance. While over half have done their best on the turf, he does have stakes winners on the dirt and at steeplechase. His best SC offspring seem to mature the latest, hitting their best stride at 4 and 5.

Only 3 of his 13 SW foals have suffered injuries: 2 cases of limping, 1 case of swelling, and 1 with a cut.

His three MSW foals were out of a create mare, an Oscillation mare, and a Fire ‘n’ Smoke mare. Created mares or other Highland-lined daughters made up the majority of his other stakes winning offspring--especially Highland Magic and Highland Bandit. He has also crossed well with daughters of Heza Gallant Gent, Void, Boldness Shows, and Captain Jack.

Silver Wizard currently stands in New York at Denoux Stud for $5,000

He is NOT BC nominated and he does not require approval to breed to.

General/Questions / Irish, English, American TC/TT races
« on: May 09, 2018, 12:58:38 pm »
I was planning out a few race schedules for a few of my stakes kids and have a few questions. Under the Hall of Fame we currently don't have any winners for the various TC/TT series but I'm not even sure what exact races make up said series. In the case of the Irish TC/TT, in RL it would go (for the Crown) 2000 Guineas, Irish Derby, Irish St. Leger. But in FF the Irish 2000 Guineas and Irish Derby are just 1 week apart, while the Irish 1000 Guineas and Irish Oaks are over 1 month apart. And the RL American Triple Tiara has always been redone so many times I don't know what actual is the Tiara in RL or in FF, haha.

Can anyone break down the different series races for the Irish, English, and American versions here in FF?

General/Questions / Stallion Spotlight April II: Aptitude
« on: April 17, 2018, 01:56:32 pm »
Stallion Spotlight: April II

 NCh. Aptitude
2012 bay Thoroughbred stallion, 15.1hh
A.P. Indy x Colors Waving
[view]

CAREER
Bred by Final Furlong, Aptitude was claimed by Krajina as an unraced three year old where he has remained since. Lightly raced, he made 29 starts over a two year period, scoring 14 wins with 8 at the G1 level: Australian Derby, Man O’War Stakes, Canadian International, Epsom Derby Stakes, St. Leger Stakes, St. James’ Palace Stakes, Sussex Stakes, and Caulfield Cup. He set 5 speed records, all over 10 furlongs turf. In 2015 he was named that year’s Three Year Old Colt Champion and Endurance Champion. Although he only raced for two years, he made them count, hitting the board 79% of the time with over $6.5 million in earnings.

During his career he beat stallions Galaxy’s Zodiac, Lucky Streak, Daredevil Dan, Changeling, In the Navy, Drum Major, I’m No Fool, Hidden Destiny, and others.

INJURY HISTORY
In two years of racing he suffered two injuries, both in his 3yo season: a cut that April and limping in late November.

LINEAGE
His sire, A.P. INDY, had 323 foals, 70 stakes winners and 37 MSW’s including NCh. Golden Text, NCh. Barchetta, NCh. Spinning Hill, GCh. A.P. Valentino, GCh. A.P. Fantasy, GCh. Highland Surprise, GCh. A.P. Executive, GCh. Indy’s Drifter, and several more. He has 4 gold-ranked daughters and 11 silver-ranked, including Indy’s Lady, dam of NCh. Sponsored. A.P. Indy’s other standing sons include Bernardini, whose first crop makes their race debut this year, and NCh. Golden Text. You can read his Stallion Spotlight here.

His dam COLORS WAVING, produced 11 foals, 5 winners, and 2 stakes winners. In additional to Aptitude, she also produced MSW Ch. Waving Octopus, and SP’s Ch. Elgin, Pandora’s Box, and Delta Demon. It should be noted most of her foals are owned by FF: her 6yo, 4yo, and 3yo have only made 1 start, and her 5yo and 2yo are both unraced--hard to really judge her as a producer! She only produced 3 daughters, with 2 currently retired to broodmare duty, and only is bronze-ranked.

SIRE RECORD
At the time of this post, he is still unranked with his oldest foals being five. Aptitude has sired 6 crops with 39% starters and 67% winners. His crops have been fairly small: his oldest crop consists of 4 horses (all winners) and he only has 12 three year olds; his largest crop are 4 and 2. Between his two started 2 year olds for 2022, one is placed.

Out of 68 current stallions w/ started offspring:
  • 6th in highest winning percentage of offspring
  • 42nd in offspring earnings
  • 48th in highest G1-placed offspring
  • 48th in highest G1-winning offspring

Leading Earners

Foals for Thought
Most of his foals are very lightly raced, but it appears most seem to prefer short to classic dirt, or steeplechase. A few foals have done well at sprint and classic turf, but the majority seem to have been switched to SC with mixed results. With such small crops, perhaps as his large 2yo crop get running we will see more!

Between his 4 SW/SP foals, 3 were out of create mares with the fourth being out of a Deputy Minister mare.

Aptitude currently stands in England at Krajina for $25,000

He is NOT BC nominated and he does require approval to breed to.

Anything Goes / Lip tattoos
« on: April 04, 2018, 10:05:22 pm »
This might be a silly question, but I'm finding it surprisingly hard to answer. A friend of mine works at a barn that acquired an elderly Thoroughbred a few years back and was told he's an Irish import. His lip tattoo is a little hard to make out (they think he's 20+), but while looking around the internet I'm only finding references to lip tattoos used on North American horses. I presumed lip tattoos were an international thing, but maybe not? Would an Irish horse have a lip tattoo? What Letter/YOB system is used?

How'd You Do? / 3/21
« on: March 21, 2018, 12:56:43 pm »
21(7)-6(2)-6-1(1)-2 $259,600

 Wins:
 Harken (3yo, Worth The Wait) in a NW3 Allowance.
 Rainee Thoroughbreds Ch. Imaginary (5yo, Moonopoly) in an Allowance.
 Papillon (4yo, Changeling) in a Starter Allowance.
 Ronara Prime (5yo, Spock) in a claiming race and stays home.
 Marchioness (3yo, I'm Your Angel) in the Cicada Stakes (Gr. 3).
 Ch. Decorated (4yo, In The Navy) in the Marsua's River Stakes (Ungr.). Entered on a whim.

 Places:
 Pleasant Theory (4yo, Magic Glory) in a NW2 Allowance.
 Phoenix Cure (4yo, Joyeux Oiseau) in a NW3 Allowance.
 Zombie Train (3yo, Dr. Evil) in a NW3 Allowance
 Sugarfoot (3yo, Sea the Stars) in an Allowance.
 RC Bee lease Ch. Arkenstone (4yo, Eighteen Karat) in an Allowance.
 Ch. Love Chicken (4yo, I'm Your Angel) in a claiming race and stays home.

 Shows:
 Ch. Diamond Etched (5yo, Bellagio) in the San Luis Rey Handicap (Gr. 2).

 Fourths:
 Chief Spy (4yo, Highland Magic) in an Allowance.
 Lord of Misrule (3yo, Long Live The King) in an Allowance.

 Fifths:
 Martini Night (3yo, Nightfight) in the Moonee Valley Gold Cup (Gr. 2).

 Also Rans:
 Ch. Golden Sun (6yo, Golden Text) 8th in an Allowance. Gelded for his transgressions.
 Poised Cherry (3yo, Player) 6th in a NW2 Allowance.
 Special Top (4yo, Invasor) 8th in the Flag Down Stakes (Ungr.). Injured, sent home.
 GCh. Bracton (8yo, Rumor Has It) 10th in the Hurricane Bertie Handicap (Ungr.). Continues to frustrate. Needs ONE stakes win...but I fear he won't get it.
 RC Bee lease USS Vengeance (3yo, Galaxy's Zodiac) 8th in the San Felipe Stakes (Gr. 2). Biggest disappointment today. Went from running 2 for 2 this year, winning by several lengths on both occasions, to a bomb in his stakes debut. Will real him back and drop him down in class again; maybe he just needs non-Derby prospects to run against.
