General/Questions / Play Those Tunes
« on: May 19, 2018, 02:00:22 am »
We are sad to announce that one of our broodmares, Play Those Tunes, has died at the ripe old age of 19.

Tunes only won once in 18 tries, however, it was when she was Retired to Stud that she came into her own. She produced 11 foals, with 8 of the 9 of her progeny who have raced so far have been winners. including 3 Stakes Winners, all of which went on to be MSW and 2 Millionaires. Her progeny averaged a shade under $650k in earnings and she ended up Silver Ranked (7.5). She has 4 daughters who had joined her in the Breeding Sheds who will hopefully carry on her legacy.

Questions / Race Entry Limits
« on: May 16, 2018, 03:28:25 am »
I just had a question out of pure curiosity.

In most Races, each stable is limited to 3 entries. What would happen in the following scenario?

Stable A has a horse, Leased Horse, that they have Leased from Stable B and has entered that horse in a (for arguments sake) Stakes Race. At the same time, Stable B wants to enter 3 horses in the same race. Would they be able to enter all 3?

I know that in the Post Parade, Leased Horse would show up as owned by Stable B and Stable A would only be able to enter a maximum of 2 non-leased horses for that race. Presumably, Stable B would still be able to enter 3 horses in the race (even though the Post Parade would show that they had 4 horses in the race).

General/Questions / Whistlin' Dixie
« on: March 23, 2018, 08:02:11 pm »
We are sad to announce that one of our most prolific broodmares, Whistlin' Dixie, has died at the ripe old age of 20.

Dixie only ran twice in her racing career, however, it was when she was Retired to Stud that she excelled. Her first foal was born in 2010 and she produced 12 foals in total, although she did have one Stillborn foal, a filly by Usain Bolt. Of her 11 live foals, all 9 of her progeny who have raced so far have been winners, including 6 Stakes Winners, 4 of which went on to be MSW and Millionaires. Her progeny averaged $800k+ in earnings and she ended up Platinum Ranked (9.7). One of her sons, GCh. Superdocious, is Stud-Qualified and his first crop of foals are expected to hit the track this year. Two others just failed to qualify, one, GCh. Cup O' Tea, missed qualification by 1 SW and the other, GCh. Shiloh's Hill, is currently 2 SW short of qualification. She also has two daughters who had joined her in the Breeding Sheds, Ch. Bonnie Blue Flag & GCh. Princess Kaiulani.

She had been Retired from Breeding after delivering her last foal, a colt by Usain Bolt.

She was always a favorite at the Farm and will be sadly missed.

Stallion Advertising / What's Debatable
« on: March 02, 2018, 03:21:26 pm »
We are sad to announce that WCh. What's Debatable passed away this morning at the ripe old age of 21.

As a racehorse, he won 12 out of his 21 races, including 8 SW (they weren't broken down by Grades back then), never once finishing outside the first 3 in any of his races. He had total earnings of $1.6m and had 3 Speed Records.  In 2005 as a 4YO, he won 7 out of his 8 races, all Stakes races, finishing 2nd in the other one. All of his races were on Dirt.

He was Retired to Stud in 2006, his first crop being born in 2007. He produced 145 racers, with 121 of them winning at least one race. He had 46 SW, of which 30 were MSW and had 18 Millionaires, and average earnings of just over $386k.
He seemed to be a better sire of fillies than colts as he had 20 female MSW as against 10 male.

As a Sire, his ranking was Silver (5.5) and as a Broodmare Sire, he was Gold (5.7). His last crop were born in 2017 and then he was Retired. None of his sons have made it to Stallion Status, however, a number of his daughters are active Broodmares who will carry on his lineage.

While he seemed to be enjoying his Retirement, it was noticeable from the beginning of this year that his health was deteriorating and he passed away peacefully during the night.

31(9)-6(2)-4(2)-5(3)-5(1) $506,950
Better day with regards to fewer 5ths/Also Rans. Highlight of the day was GCh. Fool To Be Smokin' winning the Baguette Stakes (Gr. 3). This was the last win he needed to become Stud-Qualified, however, as long as he continues to show that he is enjoying his racing, he will remain in training, at least until 2024.

A good day for our home-breds as 5 of our 6 winners and 3 of our 4 2nd Place finishers were Starfish-owned Stallions, although one of our winners (GCh. Fool To Be Smokin') wasn't actually bred by us.

Anything Goes / Southern/Northern Hemisphere Age Differences
« on: February 16, 2018, 06:00:17 pm »
Somebody had posted something recently about ages for Australian horses and, while it doesn’t affect horses in FF, it got me thinking (always a bad thing).

Scenario:- Horse A is born in Australia on Jan 10, 2015. On Aug 1, 2017, he would be classified as a 3YO in Australia but still be classified as a 2YO in America. If he was sent to be trained and race in America, would he be able to race there as a 2YO before Dec 31st, 2017? Would it matter if he had raced as a 3YO in Australia before being shipped to America?

I tried googling this question but wasn’t able to figure out what to search for. Any ideas of where I could go to find the answer to my question? Or does anybody know the answer?

Horses For Sale / Starfish Stables Sale
« on: March 21, 2017, 07:24:23 pm »
We are going to be selling a number of racehorses to make space for the upcoming 2YO's. The majority of them have no Reserve but the few that do have a Reserve of either $5k or $10k.

There are five racehorses in the Auction that are close to being Stud-Qualified but we haven't been able to get them over the line. Maybe a change of scenery will be the boost they need:-
Ch. Actors Strike, 7yo bl.h. by TakeMeToHollywood out of Blackout - Needs 2 SW plus 2 SP, including 1 G1P.
G.Ch. Jetplane, 6yo ch.h. by What's Your Point out of Jet Set Jenny - Needs 3 SW, including 1 G1W.
N.Ch. Magic Roundabout, 7yo b.h. by Magic Glory out of What's That About - Needs 2 SW.
G.Ch. St. Patrick's Day, 6yo bl.h. by Black Warrior out of Topaz - Needs 2 SW, including 1 G1W.
G.Ch. The Pink Panther, 6yo gr.h. by Cool Thief out of Secret Society - Needs 3 SW.

As a result of the fact that we have 125 Broodmares, we also have 18 Broodmares consigned to the Auction (only one of which has a Reserve).

The Auction will start on April 9th and last for a week.

Stallion Advertising / Foolhardy
« on: February 08, 2017, 10:36:25 am »
It is with great sadness that we have to announce that this magnificent horse died early this morning. When we went to do early morning rounds, his groom found him lying on the ground in his stall. Our stable vet thinks he must have had a heart attack. He was 17 years old.

FFCh. Foolhardy
17.1h Bay stallion by What's It Worth (P) (Chef-de-Race) out of Foolish Question (P) (Reine-de-Course)

As a racehorse, he won 22 out of 77 races, 21 of which were SW, including 12 G1W and finished On-the-Board in 64 of his 77 races. He total earnings were over $10m.
He was an MSW, MSP and a Multi-Millionaire and was a Chef-de-Race (I/C).

As a Stallion, he has Breeding Rankings of Sire: Platinum (9.4) & Broodmare Sire: Bronze (1.5).
126 of his 142 Racers have been Winners, with 60 SW (including 42 MSW) and 26 millionaires. Average Earnings for his progeny is $681,714.
3 of his sons (FFCh. I'm No Fool, NCh. Daredevil Dan & NCh. Pay the Boatman) have already been Retired To Stud, with another 2 (NCh. Phenomenal & GCh. Explosive Motif) Stud Qualified but still racing.

He won 4 Eclipse Awards as a racehorse and was Sire of the Year 4 times, including each of the last three years.
8 of his progeny have gone on to win Eclipse Awards, including 2-time Horse of the Year FFCh. I'm No Fool.

We bought him in 2019 from the Clover Springs Stables dispersal sale and, in the two years that he has been in our stables, he quickly became a favorite of everybody at the stable.

All owners who have paid Stud Fees for this year have had their stud fees returned.

He will be sadly missed.

RIP.
