Title: Black Storm West 2022 Foals
Post by: Shelbie on January 02, 2018, 04:15:36 am
Finally our first foals of the year arrive, and of course neither were due for a few more days.

Frostmourne (http://www.finalfurlong.org/viewhorse.php?horse=40837), 9.3hh dark gray colt
Frosted x Deadly Beauty - NCh. Devil May Care (S)
Nice big dark gray colt with not a speck of white on him; I'm quite excited for Frosted as a sire in FF. Second foal for his dam, who was bred on a lease.
*Shanthi - Let me know if his name needs changing. There's already a Frostbite in the game.

Sunstep (http://www.finalfurlong.org/viewhorse.php?horse=40900), 9.2hh brown filly
ICh. Calle de Oro x Betterthansunshine - Created
This girl arrived a few days early. She's half to SP Ch. Better Be Gone (http://www.finalfurlong.org/viewhorse.php?horse=21030). Her dam was bred on a lease and has returned to Blackhawk Ridge.
*Added: Just discovered Betterthansunshine died shortly after giving birth. This has been a very rough year for everyone.

Lovely foals though. :)

Crimson and Gold (http://www.finalfurlong.org/viewhorse.php?horse=41590), 9.0hh bay colt
WCh. Strike It Rich (S) x Scarlet Seas (B) - Seabiscuit (S)
Bred on a lease, he is the 8th foal for his dam. Half to 2 winners from 6 runners, mostly FF-campaigned so hard to say how he'll do. Scarlet Seas is half to French Ruby and Foxy Ruby. Bred on a lease, the dam has gone back to FF.

Foxham (http://www.finalfurlong.org/viewhorse.php?horse=41075), 9.0hh bay colt
NCh. Ducati x Ch. Foxy Ruby - Gallant Fox (S)
Very excited about this colt! Just purchased Foxy Ruby this past September, as she's half to our stallion French Ruby and came in foal. Foxham is half to 1 winner from 1 runner. Foxy Ruby will visit Worthy Victor for 2023.

Ribbon Taffy (http://www.finalfurlong.org/viewhorse.php?horse=40866), 9.1hh black filly
NCh. AndLikeThatHesGone x Ch. Royal Ribbon (B) - War Admiral (S)

Spice Island (http://www.finalfurlong.org/viewhorse.php?horse=40836), 8.0hh dark bay filly
California Chrome x Spice Spice Baby - GCh. Highland Laird (S)
A little sad this girl didn't have more chrome beyond a stripe and hind stockings, but in truth I had forgotten about the breeding so this was a pleasant surprise! Spice Spice Baby was bred on a lease and has returned to Denoux Stud.

Unrequited (http://www.finalfurlong.org/viewhorse.php?horse=40791), 9.1hh bay filly
NCh. AndLikeThatHesGone x Ch. Uninspired - Created

Velveteen (http://www.finalfurlong.org/viewhorse.php?horse=40865), 8.3h blue roan colt
FFCh. I'm No Fool (S) x Blue Velvet (S) - Blue Ensign (B)
This boy could have cooked a little longer, as he wasn't due until next week. Half to MSW Ch. Kera (http://www.finalfurlong.org/viewhorse.php?horse=24172) and 1 other winner. Dam set a speed record at SC, so it will be interesting to see what he favors when he grows up. Bred on a lease, Blue Velvet has returned to Blackhawk Ridge.

Six mares still keeping those legs crossed.

Realm of Power (http://www.finalfurlong.org/viewhorse.php?horse=41699), 7.2h black colt
GCh. Mantle of Power (B) x Colors Waving (G) - Created
We just acquired Colors Waving from the recent Color War and were looking forward to several years with her, but unfortunately it was not meant to be. She delivered a healthy little colt and was subsequently retired. He's half to MSW and stallion NCh. Aptitude (http://www.finalfurlong.org/viewhorse.php?horse=8944), along with Ch. Elgin (http://www.finalfurlong.org/viewhorse.php?horse=16920) and Ch. Waving Octopus (http://www.finalfurlong.org/viewhorse.php?horse=20386).

Samre sire, same color, same height,both bred on leases. They're unofficial twins in my book.

Hanging Tree (http://www.finalfurlong.org/viewhorse.php?horse=41164), 9.1h black colt
ICh. Devil's Walk x On The Road Again - ICh. Stressed
This boy was in no hurry to arrive, foaling a week later than expected. Half to SW El Inframundo (http://www.finalfurlong.org/viewhorse.php?horse=28566) His dam is half to 3 MSW's including GCh. Imperium. Bred on a lease, his dam has returned to North Oak Farms Inc.

Poinsettia (http://www.finalfurlong.org/viewhorse.php?horse=41165), 9.1h black filly

In contrast, this little girl decided to arrive 3 days early.

Naval Academy (http://www.finalfurlong.org/viewhorse.php?horse=40968), 9.3h dark bay colt

A week late, Naval Academy is an almost carbon-copy of his sire save for a single little star. Bred on a lease, he is half to 2 winners from 3 runners. His dam set 2 speed records going long on the turf, so fingers crossed he'll grow into a nice runner! Regal Kiss has returned to Blackhawk Ridge.

NCh. Lasting Spirit (S) x Ch. Tiara Tango - GCh. High On Love

I'm down to waiting on 6 overdue mares and waiting for anyone to foal early, as our next on-time mare isn't due until the 29th.

PAINTED PINK (http://www.finalfurlong.org/viewhorse.php?horse=40901), 9.3h dark bay filly
NCh. Painted Raven x Meldoniel (B) - WCh. King David (B)
Fourth foal for her dam, she is half to all winners including SP Romantica (http://www.finalfurlong.org/viewhorse.php?horse=23860). Her dam is half to MSW Ch.

Post by: Shelbie on January 18, 2018, 01:24:58 pm
FINALLY. A week later on waiting for half a dozen late mares to foal and at least someone came through. The others...well.

WILD ARUM (http://www.finalfurlong.org/viewhorse.php?horse=41119), 9.0h chestnut filly
NCh. French Ruby x Ch. Wild Countess - Count Fleet (S)
Originally due January 4th, Wild Arum is the second foal for her MSW dam. On the track she won 280k and set 2 SC speed records, so this little girl is definitely bred for a 3yo+ SC career! Wild Countess is half to GCh. Hearts Are Wild and Wild Highland (dam of 2 MSW producing daughters). Wild Countess will visit Quintet next.

PUPPET SHOW (http://www.finalfurlong.org/viewhorse.php?horse=40792), 9.0h dark bay colt
GCh. Venture His Due x Mystic Love (B) - NCh. Fleet Street (G)
Only 2 weeks late...actually surprised he's not bigger with that much extra incubation + his dam is 17.2. Maybe he'll have a late growth spurt! Mostly unproven damline, but I like Fleet Street as the damsire. Mystic Love was bred on a lease.

JUVENIA (http://www.finalfurlong.org/viewhorse.php?horse=42277), 9.3h liver chestnut filly
NCh. Irish Gold (B) x Balenciaga - A.P. Indy (S)
First foal for multi-placed dam. Her great-granddam is half to NCh. French Ruby. I didn't realize how many foals I have from this damline this year! Balenciaga's half-brother, Crimson and Gold, is also part of our 2022 crop and Juvenia's great-granddam is half to the dams of other 2022 weanlings we welcomed this year: Foxham and Foxglove. Balenciaga is now for sale, unbred.

SPACE OPERA (http://www.finalfurlong.org/viewhorse.php?horse=41303), 9.3h dark bay colt
NCh. Space Chips x Ch. Opera Diva - Sunday Silence (B)
I am especially loving his big stockings! Laziest naming ever, but I'm surprised it wasn't taken. His only started half-sib is Oeuvre (https://www.finalfurlong.org/viewhorse.php?horse=31258) who recently ran 4th in a G3. Opera Diva will visit Silver Wizard next.

ALL AMERICAN (http://www.finalfurlong.org/viewhorse.php?horse=41547), 8.3h black colt
American Pharoah x Governess - NCh. Diplomat (S)
Third foal for his dam and half to 1 winner from 1 runner. His dam, Governess, is half to FFCh. I'm No Fool and 3 other champions including Ch. Ring The Alarm (silver). Bred on a lease, Governess has returned to Marshall Creek.

BRAHMINY (http://www.finalfurlong.org/viewhorse.php?horse=42078), 9.3h dark bay filly
ICh. Starling x Bold Wench (S) - Bold Ruler (S)
Purchased in foal, Brahminy is the sixth foal for her dam. Half to MSW Ch. Batris (http://www.finalfurlong.org/viewhorse.php?horse=24567), SW Ch. Battle Section (http://www.finalfurlong.org/viewhorse.php?horse=28111), and our own multi-winner Beratis (https://www.finalfurlong.org/viewhorse.php?horse=31651). Keeping the B theme, named for the Brahminy Starling. Bold Wench will visit City Upon a Hill next.

Unfortunately, Forever a Queen's foaling took a greater toll on her than we initially thought. She was retired after delivering a healthy colt this year, but her condition took a turn and she had to be humanely euthanized. Forever a Queen was an unraced create mare who leaves behind 9 foals including 5 daughters (one of which we own). She was 18.

The fillies have almost caught up and all our remaining March dues dropped. Unfortunately we did lose one of our favorite mares.

SEA CANDY (http://www.finalfurlong.org/viewhorse.php?horse=42059), 8.1h grey filly
NCh. In The Navy x Candy Girl - NCh. Those Will Do (B)
Unfortunately, Candy Girl passed away shortly after foaling, leaving behind this healthy filly who is a fitting carbon copy of her dam right down to the socks. Candy Girl was half to Space Chips and Call to War, herself stakes placed. She is the dam of 5 foals, 4 of which we own including 3 daughters. Sea Candy is a full sister to MSW Ch. Navy Girl (http://www.finalfurlong.org/viewhorse.php?horse=27867).

STAR OF THE SEA (http://www.finalfurlong.org/viewhorse.php?horse=41528), 9.0h dark bay filly

Highly anticipated, Star of the Sea is half to MSW Ch. Sea Salt (http://www.finalfurlong.org/viewhorse.php?horse=28020), MSP Ch. Song and Sixpence (http://www.finalfurlong.org/viewhorse.php?horse=17856), and G2W Laridae (http://www.finalfurlong.org/viewhorse.php?horse=24244). Song of the Sea will visit I'm No Fool for 2023.

TENERIFE (http://www.finalfurlong.org/viewhorse.php?horse=42079), 9.1h chestnut filly
GCh. Naval Commander x Townsend Victory (S) - Man O'War (S)
Tenerife is half to MSW's Ch. T'Pau (http://www.finalfurlong.org/viewhorse.php?horse=25464), Ch. Talosian (http://www.finalfurlong.org/viewhorse.php?horse=21646), and Thalmerite (http://www.finalfurlong.org/viewhorse.php?horse=29483); half to SW's and SP's Ch.

Tarchannen (http://www.finalfurlong.org/viewhorse.php?horse=18216), Temarak (http://www.finalfurlong.org/viewhorse.php?horse=32478). Named after the island where a major Napoleonic naval battle took place. Townsend Victory will visit Lake Highlands next.

TINSELTOWNTHRODOWN (http://www.finalfurlong.org/viewhorse.php?horse=41000), 9.3h black colt
NCh. Quintet x Tinseltown - FFCh. TakeMeToHollywood (B)
First foal for his dam, he is 100% jet black and I will learn to tolerate the deliberate misspelling of his name because I've had this name in the wings forever, not realizing it was originally 1 character too long. Tinseltown set 2 speed records and is half to MSW Ch. I'm Your Demon. Tinseltown will visit Zadar for 2023.

ICh. City Upon a Hill x Ch. Daytona Weekend - A.P. Indy (S)
Someone did not want to wait! Originally due April 7th, this little guy was named in honor of the holiday and his small size. Half to SW Ch. Days of Thunder (https://www.finalfurlong.org/viewhorse.php?horse=28641). Daytona Weekend was a MSW and G1 placed; this is her fifth foal. She will visit Silver Wizard next.

Colts, colts, colts.

HOMESTEAD (http://www.finalfurlong.org/viewhorse.php?horse=42228), 8.3h bay colt
NCh. French Ruby x Chase Me Home - Almost Home (S)
Second foal and colt for Chase Me Home, who is out of gold-ranked Chase the Wind. Both parents were late bloomers so I imagine he will do likewise. Chase Me Home will visit Holy Warrior for 2023.

PICASSO (http://www.finalfurlong.org/viewhorse.php?horse=42452), 8.2h dark bay colt
NCh. Bellagio (S) x GCh. June My Love - Created
A few days early but doing well! Named for a restaurant at the Bellagio (and very surprised it wasn't taken). Out of my favorite mare/MSW June My Love, he is half to MSW Ch. Lingerie (http://www.finalfurlong.org/viewhorse.php?horse=32114), and SP's Juniper Tree (http://www.finalfurlong.org/viewhorse.php?horse=24180) and Tendresse (http://www.finalfurlong.org/viewhorse.php?horse=27836).

Arriving in earnest, now. Just 3 left for April.

CARRY ME OVER (http://www.finalfurlong.org/viewhorse.php?horse=41900), 8.1h chestnut filly
NCh. Straticus x Ch. Carry the Day - ICh. V is for Victory
First foal for MSW Carry the Day, who I purchased as a yearling, and whose granddam I also own. I suddenly feel old. Both parents excelled at mid to long turf with their best years at 3yo+ so I imagine this little girl will do likewise. Carry the Day will visit Blue Smoke for 2023.

DIAMONDBACK (http://www.finalfurlong.org/viewhorse.php?horse=42659), 8.3h dark bay colt
GCh. Venture His Due x Laird's Diamond - GCh. Highland Laird (S)
Fourth foal for SP Laird's Diamond and half to 1 winner from 1 starter. From the same damline as WCh. Crystal Rainbow, ICh. Crown Jewels, and NCh. Orion's Belt. Laird's Diamond will visit Last for More, next.

FROM THE HEART (http://www.finalfurlong.org/viewhorse.php?horse=42742), 8.3h black filly
ICh. Chivalry (S) x Ch. GoWithYourHeart - Omaha (G)
Fourth foal for her dam and half to 1 winner from 1 starter. GoWithYourHeart is half to silver-ranked Steal the Show, and gold-ranked Ch. First and Only and Charades. She will visit Bear Witness for 2023.

APPLE FRITTER (http://www.finalfurlong.org/viewhorse.php?horse=41548), 7.3h dark bay filly
NCh. Bear Witness x Ch. High Dollar - Seattle Slew (G)
I don't know why, but I really wanted to name this foal after a pastry. This girl is TINY despite only being a few days early. Bred on a lease, I really liked the combo of Class Act/Highland Rogue/Seattle Slew. Dam is MSP with 1 speed record at 10.5f dirt. All 3 of her raced siblings are placed, no wins, but all very lightly campaigned and some inactive this year so hard to say what she might do. High Dollar has returned to Marshall Creek.

Just 2 left for April, and both almost a week overdue. Such are mares.

ICh. First Born Son x Tellthecaptain (S) - Seabiscuit (S)
Sixth foal for her dam. Half sister to MSW Ch. Captain's Pride (http://www.finalfurlong.org/viewhorse.php?horse=20782) and SP Dark Caster (http://www.finalfurlong.org/viewhorse.php?horse=24409). Named for an incident in the early 19th century when British forces took an American ship, lit it on fire, and sent it over Niagara Falls. Which sounds amazingly overly dramatic.

NCh. French Ruby x Ch. Little Black Dress - NCh. Bellagio
24 days late and this boy finally arrives to complete the April babies! Named for a French fashion house, he is the second foal and colt for his dam, a SW/SP of over 280k who set 2 speed records. Most of his damline is FF owned and untested, so hard to say what he'll do. Will definitely be a late bloomer, though. Little Black Dress will visit Edinburgh next.

NCh. In The Navy x Ch. Arco da Vella - GCh. My Lucky Day (S)
A few days overdue, this big girl arrived safe and sound last night. Dam is MSP and from the same family as MSW WCh. Highland Mystery. Bred on a lease, Arco da Vella has returned to Tall Oaks Farm.

CORK (http://www.finalfurlong.org/viewhorse.php?horse=43138), 9.0h dark grey colt

First foal for his dam, Your Song is half to 3 MSW's and from the same damline as WCh. Nightfight and WCh. Gotta Go. Your Song was unraced until 5, so hard to say when this boy will run best. Your Song will visit Allinvain next.

I feel 1 colt + 1 filly is my new norm for the rest of the foaling season.

Just one [overdue] baby left for June.

BRONZE BOMBER (http://www.finalfurlong.org/viewhorse.php?horse=43154), 10.1h liver chestnut colt
NCh. Al Mundhir x Tobin Bronze - GCh. Secretsarebound
Third foal for his dam, who set a speed record at SC during her career. Hard to say what he will do, as his dam's oldest foal (2yo) is unraced, and most of her half-siblings either retired early or are unraced. Here's to hoping the Almost Home/Secretsarebound cross does well! Tobin Bronze to hopefully visit Run Jenny Run for 2023.

GCh. Zadar x Immortal Beloved - GCh. Jazz It Up (G)
