How'd You Do? / Re: 4/12
« on: April 13, 2011, 11:43:29 pm »
Mixed day but not TOO bad.

2yo's
A.P. Goodyear won her debut by a nose. Interestingly, our other A.P. Indy filly also won her debut. Makes me wonder what our 3rd A.P. 2yo will do!
Surroundsound Love (Double Cross) ran 6th/14 in her debut and will probably head home to mature.
Field of Diamonds (Ring of Fire) is definitely not ready, finishing 6th/14. He was 7th last time out, so he'll also head home.
Manchester Fields (create) ran 8th/14; another heading home.
Hills of Snow (Gimme a Shot) was 7th/14 in her debut.
Gunningdownlove (Gunningdownromance) ran 2nd/14, so very happy! She's only 14.1hh though, so not sure if I should send her home to grow or simply go slow.
Cherokee Princess (Boldness Shows) was 3rd/14.
Pepper Bomb (create) was 2nd/14.
Hollywood Lovesong (Rumor Has It) ran 5th/14.

The oldies (ish)
Sun Godess SHOCKED me with a 2nd/5th in her NW2. I think we finally found her niche!
Painted Sunset was turning wheels in her return to the track, finishing 6th/8 in her NW3. Wondering is SC is her route - Sun Godess is by the same sire and didn't pick up until the switch to SC.
In the UNG Smart Halo Stakes, Orkenstorm ran 4th/14 and Black Clouds was 6th.

A shout-out congrats to Pride Lands - we own her dam!

How'd You Do? / Re: 4/9 How'd you do
« on: April 09, 2011, 04:46:37 pm »
Pretty good overall! I need to find a stakes spot for Rocket Smoke that does not involve Biscayne Bay or Bay of Biscay, haha.

St. Elmo's Fire (2yo) debuted with a 2nd/14 (by War Chant).
Strike the Cause (2yo) debuted with a 4th/14 (Giant's Causeway).
Crack the Bell (2yo) debuted with a 3rd/14 (Dark Continent).
Miss Victory won her Allowance race, beating a full field of 14. Sailor Hat was 9th in the same race.
Artistic Tendancie won her Allowance against 5 others. I'm tempted to find her an UNG stakes for her next start.
Whistlewhileuwork and Key to Virtue were 5th-6th in their Allowance out of a field of 6.
Rock Smoke ran 5th/14 in the Wood Memorial, beaten yet again by Bay of Biscay, Biscayne Bay, and Changeling. I need to find him a spot that avoids the Biscay duo  ::)
To Alaska just didn't fire in the UNG Artax, finishing 6th/10. Maybe an allowance will gear him back up.

I'm starting to think there's something in the grass. Fillies, fillies, and more fillies!

So She Says (Rumor Has It x Kelly's Classic, by I'm a Classic). So She Says is a big 9.1hh filly, and the first foal out of Kelly's Classic (half to stakes winners Shezamazing and Excelsior Park). Kelly's Classic has been sent to Sneak Peak for 2016.

Overall: 8 colts | 15 fillies | 1 stillborn | 3 to go

General/Questions / Re: "Ran out of steam" Comment
« on: April 07, 2011, 12:05:38 am »
Meh, jockeys lie.  I pretty much don't put any stock into some of the comments. 

The only time I listen is when they give me a running style. Although with one of my 2yo's I received the comment "likes running from behind" and 2 workouts later I got "likes to be on the lead" so who the heck knows.

How'd You Do? / 4/6
« on: April 06, 2011, 11:33:33 pm »
Great day! (they seem to come in waves).

Tiz a Damsel ran 2nd/6 in her NW1, beaten by just a nose.
A Knight's Tale, 2yo, debuted with a 2nd/14 at Aqueduct.
Little Boy ran 5th/6 in his NW2, Justawhirl 6th in the same race.
Letters to Amarna ran 3rd/6 in his Allowance.
Chasqui Mistress, 2yo, ran a respectable 5th/14 in her debut.
Dark Twilight won her NW3 out of a field of 6.
Miss Townsend was a bit over her head, as predicted, and finished 11th/14 in the UNG. Star Shoot Stakes.
Black Clouds shocked us by finishing 3rd/14 in the UNG. Fire Plug Stakes. We simply threw her into the race because the distance suited her best. Stablemate Roi d'Argent finished 13th and it was decided to retire the veteran.
