Not a bad day considering I was mainly just experimenting with everyone out today.

Minor Scene (4yo, Dr. Evil) in a NW2 Allowance - After idling for awhile and then being in training for a month it's nice she was able to come back and break her maiden.

Aizu (4yo, Demand the Best) in a NW2 Allowance

Take Me Now (6yo, TakeMeToHollywood) in a NW3 Allowance - She's been running OK this year, next outing I'll see if she does better when she's only against other mares.

Secret Chord (3yo, Hidden Destiny) in a NW3 Allowance - Switched over to SC since while he was doing fairly well as a 2yo, he no longer seemed to have any interest in flat racing.

Southern Warrior (5yo, Black Warrior) in an Allowance - Another just switched to SC. It was a pretty large field so I have hope she'll do well with more training before her next start.

Also Rans:
Innovation (6yo, Crystal Rainbow) 7th in a NW2 Allowance
For Pete's Sake (5yo, High Chances) 9th in an Allowance - Can't tell if she's done with running or if I just need to give her a long rest and switch things up.
Antares (5yo, Formal Occasion) 9th in the Rose of Kingston Stakes (Gr. 3) - I feel this was a pretty definitive answer that stakes level turf is a no go for her, haha

It was an all or nothing kind of day apparently. Very happy that some of the 3yos are starting to find their feet though!

Out of Time (6yo, Clockstopper) in a NW2 Allowance - Maybe this older girl's interested in running again now that we've tried fences?
Coastal Cake (3yo, French Ruby) in an Allowance
Swish (3yo, Drum Major) in a Starter Allowance - Finally! Broke his maiden today.
Lethal Spring (3yo, Eighteen Karat) in a NW1 Allowance - Another one that broke her maiden, I just recently purchased her after being inspired by the Stallion Spotlight on Eighteen Karat  :)

Also Rans:
Red Harted Queen (3yo, Ace of Hearts) 6th in an Allowance
No Time to Lose (3yo, Spock) 6th in a Starter Allowance
Ch. At Last Light (5yo, Lasting Spirit) 9th in the Gulfstream Park Breeders' Cup Handicap (Gr. 1) - Apparently he didn't want to get his hooves wet this outing.

No winners today, but at least the 3yos placed! Sending my older ponies back home to rest for awhile.

Court Martial (3yo, Major's Flight) in a NW3 Allowance
Dobies Bight (3yo, Doodles) in an Allowance
Overrated Heart (3yo, Void) in a claiming race - Claimed from FF, this colt has 2 MSW 1/2 sisters so I'm happy to have snagged him.

Tottenham Time (4yo, Tottenham Hotspur) in an Allowance

Also Rans:
Wistful Linen (4yo, What's Your Point) 7th in a NW2 Allowance
Ching Shih (4yo, In The Navy) 8th in an Allowance
Ghost of a Chance (5yo, Brigade) 8th in an Allowance
Divina Commedia (3yo, Unabridged) 8th in a NW1 Allowance - RC Bee lease here, this was her first start so I have to say I'm pleased to see she actually was mid pack in this race and not completely overtaken by the more experienced horses here.

Thanks @Shanthi and @willagrey! I actually ended up rewatching The Usual Suspects again the other night, still just as good :) In other news, a very early colt today. I think this mare was due the end of March if I'm remembering correctly.

ICh. Belanso (S) x Like An Egyptian - GCh. Akhetnaten (S)
Bred by Denoux Stud
8.0h dark grey colt

Named after the Egyptian city, this little guy is still bigger than I was expecting for such an early foal. Mom didn't have an extensive racing career since she broke her leg as a 2yo, so I'll be interested to see how this guy will run in a couple years. Like An Egyptian is off to visit Bellagio next.

Decided to keep my horses to lower level races today, and it seems like the back to basics worked quite well for most of them.

Bungled Conquest (5yo, Slip In The Mud) in a NW2 Allowance - Breaking her maiden, yay!

Solara (5yo, Galaxy's Zodiac) in a NW2 Allowance

Passchendaele (4yo, Almost Precious) in a NW3 Allowance

Gambling Rain (3yo, Harvard Bound) in a claiming race - Excited to claim this guy for only 5k when his dam is Gold ranked. Hopefully he lives up to some of his 1/2 siblings success ;)

Agnostic (4yo, Gotta Go) 7th in a NW3 Allowance

My own 3yos, I can't seem to figure out, but at least my lease came through :P

Red Harted Queen (3yo, Ace of Hearts) in an Allowance - Lease from RC Bee. I own her 1/2 sister who's currently making the switch to fences, and am happy to see this filly starting off her stay with us well!

Odd Light (4yo, Latino Mix) in a NW2 Allowance - Still hasn't won over fences yet, but since making the switch she's always been in the top 3 so I'm still quite pleased with this mare.

Argus Array (6yo, High On Love) in a Starter Allowance

Also Rans:
Desert Sand (3yo, Dixie Time) 9th in a NW1 Allowance
Bohemia (3yo, Created) 8th in a NW2 Allowance
Effigy (3yo, Highland Burning) 6th in a NW2 Allowance

Decent enough day, ponies mostly made back their entry fees. Lots of my older horses seemed a bit tired so they'll be resting through February.

Dobies Bight (3yo, Doodles) in a NW3 Allowance - Her first win over fences, I'm interested to see how she keeps maturing.

Lamenda Prime (4yo, Belanso) in a NW3 Allowance

Centaurian (4yo, Galaxy's Zodiac) in a NW2 Allowance
Tottenham Time (4yo, Tottenham Hotspur) in an Allowance - I was wondering if her last placing was just a fluke because it was in a smaller field, but today's race was fairly competitive and she held her own so here's to hoping for more good races this year.

Antares (5yo, Formal Occasion) in the Correction Stakes (Ungr.)

Also Rans:
Loose Canon (3yo, Sunday Paper) 6th in a NW3 Allowance - I don't think this girl has fully matured yet, so she'll probably be resting and training for a while before heading out to race again.
Mario (6yo, Silver Charm) 10th in an Allowance
Decadent (5yo, Witness) 11th in an Allowance
Home Invasion (6yo, Cool Thief) 10th in an Allowance
Southern Warrior (5yo, Black Warrior) 12th in an Allowance
One Fast Belle (3yo, One Lucky Soul) 7th in a maiden - Maybe one day she'll live up to her name and come in the money, hopefully she's just a late bloomer.
Sir Percivale (6yo, Crystal Rainbow) 6th in the Shannon Stakes (Gr. 2)

Another filly was born today, and almost a week earlier than expected.

NCh. AndLikeThatHesGone x La Revedere - Blue Ensign (B)
Bred by Denoux Stud
9.3h black filly

Decided to pull this girl's name from the same monologue in The Usual Suspects where Verbal says "And like that he's gone." This is the first foal for La Revedere, and she'll be visiting Quintet next.

Finally finishing off January, and thankfully on a high note with our first stakes win!

Patrick (5yo, Yes It's Paddy) in a Starter Allowance
Ch. At Last Light (5yo, Lasting Spirit) in the Santa Monica Handicap (Gr. 1) - Super excited to have purchased this guy from the Coleman Branch auction because, fun fact, I played FF another time for a bit back in high school and he's one of the foals I bred. I don't think I was ever super active though so when college came around I lost track of FF, but now that I'm done with school I'm so happy to be back :) I'm really looking forward to how this guy will run going forward!

To be honest, not as bad as I expected so there's that.

Innovation (6yo, Crystal Rainbow) in a maiden - I thought she was going to finish just ahead of Queen's Command and be left in the dust by the younger horses, but maybe this means there's still hope for her to get in some decent races before retirement?

Ready Player One (4yo, Player) in a NW1 Allowance - Still always in the money, but never a winner

Queen's Command (6yo, Foolhardy) in a maiden - This mare is a lease, and she seems pretty done with running. At this point, I think at this point the goal is to get her through her 10 starts and then send her home to her owner to be a broodmare
Silver Sparkler (4yo, Formal Occasion) in a NW3 Allowance

Also Rans:
Secret Chord (3yo, Hidden Destiny) 10th in an Allowance - He had a decent 2yo year and now can't find his feet anymore. Hopefully as the year goes on he'll be better.
Infatuation (3yo, Demand the Best) 8th in a maiden - Another 3yo that I'm hoping is maybe a late bloomer?

Subpar January continues.

Tottenham Time (4yo, Tottenham Hotspur) in a NW3 Allowance

Wish Come True (4yo, As You Wish) in a NW2 Allowance
Whisky Rebel (5yo, Latino Mix) in the Santa Ynez Stakes (Gr. 2)

Separate Garden (3yo, Blue Ensign) in a claiming race - Happy to claim this girl from FF at least, her dam had quite a few SWs and a MSW by Romeo so here's to hoping she's got some success ahead of her.
Express Red (6yo, Express Yourself) in a NW2 Allowance

Also Rans:
Pride And Glory (3yo, Tottenham Hotspur) 11th in a NW1 Allowance

January results continue to be middling, there were 10 actually sent out today. I did manage to claim Affecting, though, which is nice. She's now retired to broodmare duties.

Centaurian (4yo, Galaxy's Zodiac) in a NW1 Allowance - Finally broke his maiden
Difficult News (4yo, Aptitude) in a maiden - Also finally breaking her maiden

Odd Light (4yo, Latino Mix) in a NW2 Allowance - Switching her to over fences seemed to perk this girl up again
