How miserable. Spent more money shipping these sorry horses home than they won today.

 RC Bee lease Ch. Crown of Oak (3yo, Changeling) in the Brisbane Cup (Gr. 1). Has now won 3 of 4 starts this year, all 3 at stakes level and this is her second G1.

:O!!!!! Look at my girl go!

Can't remember if I ever posted in the previous year's thread but from the looks of it, my 2YOs have so far been floundering about, whether in my barn or someone else's. Beyond The Horizon has been the most consistent of the lot. 6 starts and 4 wins. Kudos to AllegroThoroughbreds.

I only have 16 2YOs in my 2023 crop, which I actually like. Too sentimental to get rid of most of my older horses so they're being leased and managed by other people while I try to do better in this game  ::)

HORUS (American Pharoah x Diamond Prospector, by Mr. Prospector) is my most anticipated one of the bunch. Half-brother to a stakes winner and a stakes-placed and I'm really eager to see how well the FF and real life Pharoahs do. Plus he's black. I love black horses.

THE HINTERLANDS (Eighteen Karat x Scotland's Glory, by Highland Laird) has a very nice pedigree and a really lousy owner-breeder/trainer. His older full brother Heart of Glory has done okay so far. Maybe he'll do one better.

KULESHOV EFFECT (Eighteen Karat x Fade to Black, by The Black) is a half-sis to some blacktype runners.

SHIPS IN THE NIGHT (Naval Commander x Farewell to Arms, by Candidate) is a half-sister to USS Vengeance who is actually doing really well in stakes competitions which is wild because I don't breed consistently quality horses. So based on that, I have some hopes for this filly.

16 soon-to-be-2YOs means I have hopes for all of them but the above are the ones with the more promising pedigrees. I think. Dunno, I have a pretty bad track record with that.....

Karat has a BC winner! :O  Knew leasing/selling my horses would pay off!

Anyway, barn had a typically horrible day but the odds were always against us when we only entered one runner in one race.  :(

Off the board the whole year, even with a very long break. She's no steeplechaser and she's retired.

I love when my horses go from winning a stakes and promising to do good this fall, to finishing at the bottom of the pack to remind me why I leased most of my horses this year.  :-\

Been a long while since I posted here but a filly I always thought highly of decided to surprise me in her first race in eight months. How long has it been since I had a stakes winner?....
